My company is running a SBS2003 domain. The same SBS includes my DC, DNS, DHCP, AD, Exchange, File & Print, Sharepoint and SQL server features. Now if I am to expand the company over different locations and add two more branches; is it wise to keep SBS with out upgrading to Standard server 2003, purchase all the licenses of the different products and get servers running on each location. Now I have already opened another branch and connected them through a 512KB MPLS link and the link is not sufficient as it always fails to cover our load.
Now my question is if I need all these features and I am plannign to expand but the number of my users are not going to exceed 50 users; what would be the best practice according to your expertise and according to Microsoft Recomendations?
Thank you for your adherence and responce.
