Hello experts !
I have situation - fast file server (P4 3.2 GHz, 1 GB Dual RAM, 2 sets of 2xIDE 7200 in RAID 0) and 4 or 7 workstations. Network is 1 GB over copper (cables is CAT6) using 3COM office connect swither (with 5 or 8 ports) http://www.3com.com/products/en_US/detail.jsp?tab=features&pathtype=purchase&sku=3C1670500
File server and workstaions are used for big video files - 3.5 MB per second (about 14 GB for 1 hour !).
OS is Windows XP + SP2 and rarely can be Windows 2000 +SP4.
One of workstation MUST has total priority over others when access file server. I mean that it trafic MUST be garantee to be about 5-6 MB/s !
What is BEST way to give priority ? Somethink useful and NOT so complexity ?
