Folder Redirection in a Win2003 *standalone* server?
Posted on 2008-11-02
We have an office with about 25 users on WinXP
The main reason we got the Windows 2003 Server is to have all users files saved on the server and not locally, so we can centralize the backup of files and control access.
Can we enable Folder Redirection for all users when the server is setup as a standalone server, and not a Domain Controller?
The server is a HP Proliant ML150 G5 (Quad Xeon E5405), 4GB, 750GB storage.
We would like to avoid the Domain Controller functionality
1) because of the additional complexity/maintenance required and
2) because a second DC to mirror the first DC would be required for failover in case the Proliant fails.
