Migrating to Windows file server and Active Directory - need PC to join Domain?
Posted on 2009-07-07
We are migrating to Windows 2008 file server from Apple OS X xserve, Samba and LDAP authentication. PCs are on workgroup settings and access rights on the SAMBA file server is controlled via ACL.
When migrating to the Active Directory, must we have the PCs join the domain?
We have 35 PCs on the LAN and I suppose as some point in time we will want to implement (or learn how to implement) group policies and login scripts etc.
