Network design using Windows Server 2003

Ok here is the deal. I need suggestions on a preliminary network design that will have roughly a hundred clients and roughly 10 servers for a hospital. Where do I begin? The only component that is known is that we will run Windows 2003 Server. Can someone point me in the right direct for help.

You'll need to outline all kinds of things like:

Requirements

Staff numbers

departments

applications running

Anything besides Windows (macs, Unix, Linux)

type of networking equipment

goals



If you just want to read up on how to do this I would suggest the following:

Jcan,

Not to sound mean...honestly.  But you are asking for something that is very difficult to provide via EE.

The links above will get you started, but network design and domain design, etc. is a hands-on thing with planning meetings, etc.

If someone here just said "Do this" and listed out some things, it may not fit for your environment, and you'd wonder why they suggested it that way.


My best suggestion to you is to check those links, grab a few books on the subject, google like crazy, and maybe even bring in a design consultant.  It sounds like you aren't familiar with this, and I'm sure your company would appreciate you doing your due diligence to make sure things are done right up front.

Just my 2 cents.
