What services/setup is required on a server for Setting up Remote Sales Office
Posted on 2013-05-13
Hello. I am looking for some guidance as need to setup a new server (HP) in our sales office which supports 5 Windows users and 1 Mac. They will be connected to the Corp Office via VPN Tunnel on the firewalls.
Corp configuration currently is a Windows 2003 Domain, running Exchange 2007, and Citrix XenApp 6.5.
My question is, This will be the only server at the remote office. I want this server to serve as File/Print services and allow them functions to speed up their processes at their location. They will also utilize Citrix XenApp 6.5 for a good portion of their day accessing corporate applications.
We are currently on two domains, but they are moving to a new location and with this new server, they will be an extension of the corp domain, not their own which is going away, with mail services, major applications and XenApp 6.5 services to be used there, but housed at the corp location.
So, do I set this server up as a Domain Controller with file/print services? Do I set this server up as a Member server? I am just looking for some guidance as I haven't setup a new remote office from scratch. Thanks.
