we are in the process of upgrading from sbs 2003 premium (sql server has minimal use at present, but is used).
The new dell server will have 2 x xeon 2.53ghz quad processors + 16 gb ram + raid 5 (5 x 600gb).
we would like to run the premium licence on the old dell server 2 x xeon 3ghz dual procesors + 3gb ram (1gb left) + 2 x 300 gb drives mirrored (raid 1).
we have 15 - 20 remote users that I would like to connect using remote access to the premium server to use word, excel, project and 5 access databases that will be transfered to the sql server eventually.
I am asking your expert opinion on:
can it be done using the old 32 bit server for the 2011 premium licenced setup?
what issues am i likely to encounter?
Any other advice to a desktop technician trying to punch above his weight?
thank you for your time.
