Hi-
I need to be aware of all the pitfalls that go with setting up a new Linux server on a new network. Please be general and/or specific as to what questions I need to ask someone who would understand this.
I very much appreciate it.
Thanks.

Hi!

"all the pitfalls" is quite difficult to cover without specific questions.

Do you have a specific question?

My best tip for you is to setup a test environment first, then you'd know most of the pitfalls.

Regards, Tobias

It depends so much on what you are doing.  Are you going to set up the server as a standalone proxy or web/intranet server?  DHCP? DNS?  or just a NAS like Openfiler?  or a full blown Zentyal or ClearOS or SME Server?

Most things are no problem at all.  AD integration is a little more involved, but not a problem.  

Is this a transition phase or will it stay a mixed server environment?

There are many more questions, but yours is too general to say much more.

To what extend do computers link to others.... (in general)

1) they use power & produce heat. -  so if the fues are too small or that airco is at its MAX they might start trouble.
2) they have network connectivity. - so any linkup might cause a array of problems duplicate addresses, bad interaction with other equipment etc.
3) they run programs. - to what extend is there any incompatibality with existing setups
4) configuration of programs. ....
5) bugs & short commings in programs...
6) programs & systems are managed by humans, giving a new domain of challenges
7) programs & systems are used by humans, giving another set.
...

So the domain is too large, and just mentioning the new system is linux doesn't really help in reducing the options.
