This is going to be part 1 of a couple of questions. I didn't want to create 1 post with multiple question b/c I feel that the experts to get full credit for their answers.
I currently have 10 different offices that I support, each office runs independent.
Each office has either 1 or 2 servers and any where from 10 -45 pcs per office.
In order to better Centrally manage everyone I want to do away with their server and connect them all to one network and seperate them via OU's.
I have been researching data centers and the prices aren't too bad to maintain 1 or 2 servers at the data center for Active Directory,DNS,DHCP and even a central backup server.
Question # 1:
What would be the best setup for something like this?
