The Windows 2000 server that hosted a Lotus Approach database at a marina that I manage has died. The file was accessed by 5 workstations. It is a very comprehensive database of all clients who purchased boats, their maintenance history and all kinds of purchase info for each. Several of the workstations have been upgraded to new Windows 7 Home Edition computers which have local copies of Lotus Smart Suite installed in compatibility mode for XP Service Pack2 and everything worked great. The owner of the company has lost his installation disk for Windows 2000 server.I would like to know what options would be best to provide the workstations with access to the database. Would it be best to buy a new server with a newer version of Windows Server, or can WINDOWS 7 PRO be used as fileserver since it can allow access to more users. The company now has a Windows 7 Pro computer which hosts the Quick Books Enterprise company file and that works really well.This time of year is very slow so it is lucky that it happened now instead of July when it is really busy and that database is accessed all the time.I am trying to think of the most cost effective way to host this file again. We will obviously have to buy new software and hardware but I it is just one database that needs to be accessed by 5 users. Thanks for your help.
