Specs: Windows Server 2003, -
Hello everyone,

I am going to buy Windows Server 2003 and 2008 in a few days, and I used some trial these days..

I want to ask everyone for the following help subjects:

1) Do i need to install windows server on every computer that is going to be used with it?
2) How about the domain or something.. how should i set it up and connect the client computers to it..

If you want to help me, please email me on <removed>, or post a reply.

All help is appreciated :)

EDIT: why is my email removed?
How is anyone supposed to help me trough email?

Members of the forum are not supposed to help you via email.

Help is given only on the forum, so that other people may read the entire thread and possibly benefit from it.
Helping by email negates the whole point of having a forum!

Your email address was removed for your own security, unless you want to be bombarded with spam every day?

Google email harvesting so you understand why your email address was removed.

Jari these are too basic of questions. You wouldn't ask someone to teach you to drive via email would you? Of course not.

You need to start by buying a Server 2003 or 2008 book and begin your study.

Trial and error, the present method you are trying to use, results in a poor often misguided education.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

The above have said most of what needs to be said.

I'm curious as to why you are about to spend a large amount of money on a server operating system when you seem to be unaware of how it works or what it does. Save your money, spend some of it on a good book (I can recommend Mastering Windows 2008 Server), download a trial copy of the software and study it in conjunction with the book. Once you have worked through the book you will have a greater understanding of what you are about to spend your money on. You may even find that server software is not what you need; then you can spend the money more wisely.

Think about what you are trying to achieve and whether you really need expensive server software (plus the necessary client licences) to achieve that end. (Hint - if you just want simple file sharing for a few clients and/or a web server then you probably don't need Windows Server. On the other hand, if you want to support an office of, say, 25 or more client computers and provide easy administrative control of those computers then perhaps you do need Windows Server.)

By even asking this question it's very clear you don't know what you're doing. If you're running a business, you probably have enough on your plate than to learn a new trade. Hire an IT consultant, I know a great one in Baltimore, MD :-D.
