Setting up a second file server
Posted on 2005-05-10
Ok, dont call me stupid, i just want expertise advise.
We have one server that is our File Server and Terminal Server. We are adding another Server that will house our accounting software only.
(1) Now, I know I will have to add it to the Domain.............something like running ****prep? Is this correct. I just want it to be a file server that can be accessed through the main server.
Which leads me into the second part of the question............................
(2) Outside users terminal service into the current File server to access our old DOS acccountng software. Could we keep the set up the same and have them log into the same server and cross over to the new file server to run the accounting software through a mapped drive that will put the exe run applicaiton file on their desktops?
(3) And, when buying the other Server, will I have to buy user cals per users that need access to that server?
Does this sound logical?
