Adding a Server - easy 500 points....
Posted on 2006-05-30
Easy 500 points this one I'm sure.
I've got a win2003 sbs supporting 2 offices, which are joined by a 256kb vpn. It's the premium version and I'm using both SQL and exchange on it. I want to add a server to the office that doesn't have one, but am uncertain whether I should be buying another sbs machine, or just a win 2003 server.
Things I'd like:
All users to authenticate to their nearest box.
Each user to have a home drive and group area at their main work location.
I am also near the limit of my sbs exchange database sizes (although I'm sure some house keeping would sort that out, so not essential)
What's the best practice to add a second server?
