My company is based in the Gurnee area of Illinois. I’m looking to replace a Dell server. It’s a PowerEdge 6800. The server is a Primary Active Directory Domain Controller, File Server, VPN access server, with possible other roles. There’s currently no other domain controller for the affected domain. Dell gave me the following recommendation:
“Our recommendation is to first get a 2nd DC up on new hardware that can eventually take over the primary DC functions.
Then when you can transition off of the 6800, you can install another server in its place for redundancy.”
I'm looking for a company that can help us achieve the goals listed in the recommendation above. These are Windows 2008 Servers.
