I asked a similar question a couple of days ago, and through the feedback I have got I have amended my design ( see attached ) I basically want to know if you guys (the experts) believe this design is workable. (I am learning all this from scratch) We are a non profit org so I am trying to get as much knowledge as possible before seeking consultation, if we need it.
Basic rundown of what it will be doing/used for, before my questions.
Approx 50 users, peak concurrent usage will be 25-35.
Single Domain ourcompany.local
All users will be logging into TS via either a thin client, pc or RDP out of office hours.
Users will be using Office 2007, EMR software, internet access.
Ok my questions -
- Is this design workable, or are there some major flaws in the design, either cabling/hardware/configura
tion of snapins' (i appreciate it is pretty basic)
- SBS 2008 will manage DNS, so do i need to assign a subnet/ip to 2816 switch so that SBS will use the 10.0.0.X range? (i prefer this because it is easy to remember!)
- Im assuming, the firewall I should just open the usual ports, 25, 80, vpn, etc and forward them onto the IP of the 2816 if the above is correct.
- When making a DC/Secondary DNS, do these automatically propagate from the GC/DNS, or do I manually have to do it ?
I will be using backup exec to manage our backups and probably investing in eset software for virus protection. Once again thank you for your help, and apologies if my questions sound incrediably stupid. So much to learn !
