Specs: Windows Server 2008
Do you have to log into a server after it restarts? My question is related to how a Server operating system is different from a workstation (xp,vista,7). When you log in and manage a server should you log off when you’re done or just lock the workstation? And do you think it is best to create each server their own username id Active Directory?

I have set up a Windows domain at home. I have a few servers and about 5 workstations. Most of this is just to experiment with. I am the only person to really manage the servers. Servers are Windows Server 2008.
Thanks, Rob

No, you don't have to log in. Whether you log out or lock the computer is up to you. Generally, you would log off.

I don't understand what you are asking in your question about server names and Active Directory. Can you rephrase it?
