small office network setup with Mac
Posted on 2011-03-11
Just have a general/best practice question regarding a small-office Mac network setup.
I have a client who has (without advice) purchased 2 iMacs, 2TB Time Capsule, 1 Mac Mini server.
Currently, there are only 4 users (3 + admin account) and they are just basic accounts, created identically on each iMac. They plan to use the Mini essentially just as a file server.
They run BPOS for their email, setup in Outlook 2011.
I'm attending site soon to setup the server for them.
My question is, what would be the best practice for a setup like this? Can I have network accounts that can roam between both iMacs? Is it difficult to setup file sharing and permissions from the server side? Tips or advice?
I'm relatively green when it comes to Apple, even though I run a Macbook Pro as my personal computer.
