New server hardware needs to be configure and Replace Domain Controller Overkill.
Posted on 2007-11-29
This is a very small office (5 people); currently we have w2k3 server running as a PDC with CRM, Exchange 2007, SQL SRVR 2005 for CRM, and Active Directory of course.
The "Systems Engineer" that received a Microsoft Action Pack and proceeded to use everything in it on our tiny network is no longer with us. ;-)
Needless to say all of this is installed on a desktop box . . . booooo! Hey I said needless to say, I just need to vent a bit. 01100101100111
We us Outlook on our workstations for email with Exchange for outgoing mail. Incoming mail is on a Linux box at a remote location via a Plesk cPanel.
We have a true server that is ready for setup and deployment. What is the best way to set this up (the box and the network) to replace the nightmare that is our Network configuration Overkill?
p.s. We also have another w2k3 desktop setup as a file server.
