My SBS 2003 finely died after 7 years on a PIII 256MB Micron clunker running two RAID1 and two single drives mostly used for data at home. Tons of movies and music and of course other files.
Anyway. My Linksys router (new) is doing DHCP and DNS right now with a comcast connection.
I have a new Dell server which will be running SBS 2003. I'll build it with the same domain. I know I'll need to remover computers from domain and join this new one since it's a diff. machine. Question, the last server I ran DHCP and DNS on the server and I know DHCP was turned off on the router (Only one DHCP server). Do I also need to do the same for DNS? turn off dns on the router?
Also should I just keep runninig DNS and DHCP on the router and not on my new SBS 2003 server?
I won't be using the Ecxhange server on it but maybe later and I will not be using the Remore Web Workplace just a pass through for VPN.
