I am looking to add Read Only Domain Controllers at a couple of remote sites. These sites are connected by T1's back to the parent site, which is currently providing all services.
Other than providing domain services (Active Directory/DNS/DHCP) these servers will only be used as print servers and as software distribution points for a staff of around 50.
I would like to put in something (HP) that is cost-effective but meets the above requirements, along with RAID1 drives.
Does anyone have a spec (specifically processor speed/cores, RAM, disk type - SAS/SATA etc) that could be regarded as a PRACTICAL minimum for Windows 2008 R2 server install?
