My Director has assigned me as the server administrator of our new server. I don't have any formal education with servers, however I have played around with them for a few years. The server runs Windows 2003 Server and is going to be a file/web server. It is a new server and nothing has been done with it.
I am assuming that I can assign it the role of File and Web server using the wizard in "Managing your server". I have three hard drives in the server, C, D, and E. I am going to leave 'C' alone. I plan to assign 'D' as the webserver (47GB) and 'E' as the file server (500GB).
I currently have 6 folders on drive 'D' each representing a department. Currently the data for each department are found on three different servers. I am assuming that to make my server a File/Web server I must assign it those roles and I can use the Wazard on 2003 to do that.
Can anyone tell me where I can find step by step directions on how to go through these (File server and Web server) wizards to set up these 6 folders? I went through the wizard and it give me an option to setting one shared location
Is there an easier way to move the data from the three servers to my server. I thought about mapping drives, but that would take a long time over the network. I was hoping there was an easier way.
Thank you for any help you can give me
