Hello,

I need to setup a Dell box supplied with Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation for a simple network mainly as afileserver. This is the only server in the network.

DHCP & user management (ie. username/passwords) would be useful.

Which roles & features I'll need to enable/configure?

I'm experienced with with windows & sbs servers but struggling with this one!

Thanks
Jay

Many thanks for the prompt response.

I'll work through your suggestion.

Also, are there any general KB articles or resources to guide setup & features on Foundation Server?
