Why does SBS want to be a router?

  1. I know what you mean. However, it's a nice little suite once you learn how
    to install it the way it wants to run, and the price is right. Plus, there's
    some stuff like RWW, and the built-in sharepoint site, that are very nice
    for small companies..

  2. You're most welcome! I say, build a few SBS boxes & see what breaks, before
    you put one into production.
    I always use their boot disk even if I set up the RAID stuff in the RAID
    card config itself - I just find it easier to feed it all the info. Also, I
    install the utility partition.

    I have neither a spare server for testing nor a large enough test network to
    give it a decent shake-out. It just better work.

    The utility partition was there already, and I just installed clean on the
    other partition without deleting it. All the drivers seem to be right too,
    after I loaded 2 or 3 of them from the disks. You don't think it's going to
    fall apart without the extra 3 GB from Dell, do you?

  4. That's what I mean. They are not there, but every user can log in. Look in
    server management for the "users" page.

    I trust that is the case,...but it is more fun if I can moan and compain
    about it. :)

    Erk - I don't recommend that. You don't need to test it with more than one
    workstation. The standard rule amongst the SBS people is, install it three
    times to get a feel for it. If you aren't 100% sure, get a consultant in
    who's done a lot of SBS installs.
