I recently have been brought on as the IT consultant for a small business. They have a "new" Windows Server2003 and they also have an older Unix (SCO) server which hosts an acounting application. All of the shared files are being mapped to the Unix server using SAMBA. There are only 4 - 5 users of the Unix server and it is a bit slow.
Is it in my best interest to map the shared files to the Windows Server2003 machine?
I believe the reason he had not done this is because there is no backup on the new server. (I know...hard to believe...trust me that is only the tip of the iceburg....)
