Separate servers vs one server
Posted on 2006-03-20
We are in a workgroup situation soon to migrate to Active Directory. Our budget is small and we have our backup server (PC) and our anti-virus server (PC) are dying as well as our two Print servers (PCs) are dying, also. That's four PCs to replace, we also will have to get an actual server for AD. We tend to set up PC client machines as servers, obviously to save $
My question is: what is the best way to go - separate servers for print, backup, anti-virus and AD -OR-
if one or two servers can handle it, which play nice together? We have about 100 on the network.
