Time to replace our printer/shared drive server
Posted on 2014-04-08
We are beginning our discussion of upgrading our Windows 2003 server that is currently a printer server as well as houses the majority of our companies' shared drives. Goal one is get these two things separated so they aren't on the same server, goal two get both off of the current server.
Our initial thoughts are to keep the IP of the current server associated to the new printer server.
We're also worried about the shared drive changes, everyone has their own drive which is on \\server1\users\username folder. All those are going to change once 'server1' is no longer where this is stored.
We'd like to hear any lessons learned on this type of change, we are in the very early stages of discussion and trying to figure out what to expect.
