I am setting up an Application server on a server right out of the box with Server 2008 Standard SP1.   Along with an APC UPS.  not including other software but including any updates, how long would a "normal" (I am sure many would say there is no such thing as normal) set up time allotment call for?   Someone told me 32-40 hours and I really could not understand that.  Any help with this, please.  No Sql server being added, Xeon processor 4 gig RAM on a raid 5

Server RAID configuration, depends on manufacter - 30 minutes
DVD install should take a max of an hour depending on system disk size
updates depending on network speeds and patches to download another hour
Configuring APC software and installing 15 minutes

Four hours should give one plenty of time and time to rack the server and cable if applicable.

my wild guess

Thanks.   I agree that the 32-40 hours was a sell for other things than just the server.
