Need new server? or just upgrade?
Posted on 2007-10-11
Just qot a new client who is using a Dell SC420 server with SBS 2003 Std installed.
Whoever set the server up hasn't done a good job.
The server has 512MB RAM, a Pentium 4 Processor2.80Ghz and just one hard disk. The HDD has been partioned into two parts, C drive with 8GB of space and D drive with 140GB space.
The major problems they are having are to with SAGE. This is run from the server and keeps crashing, they also have lots of access databases running from the server and no backup in place!
They have 6 PC's connecting to the server, not running exchange but POP3 (why do people do that when exchange is sat there) and also the remote access isn't configured.
My main question is - Would you recommend a new server? Or just upgrade the exisiting one in some way?
