With a domain-controller.... VS.... without a domain-controller ?

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by \A_Michigan_User\, Jul 1, 2005.

  1. Our small company has about 30 computers networked together.
    We can already log-in, print, share folders, share files, set permissions,
    etc.

    Who can list a few things that we could do if we set up a Windows 2000-2003
    domain controller machine... that are TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE to do without one?

    Thanks

  4. I'm not interested in which has more "benefits"... I only need a list of....

    It's *IMPOSSIBLE* to do this without installing a domain-controller.
    You *MUST* have a domain-controller... to do this.

    (Currently... everything we need to do... seems to be working fine...
    without any kind of a domain-controller at all.)

    I'm starting to feel that a DC will do us no good at all. We won't really
    *GAIN* anything that we can't already do.
    (We are a very simple, very small company.)

    If we only "gain" things like... you won't have to walk down the hall to
    room #2... you'll be able to do everything from
    room #1 instead. That's not really worth it. (I can walk 20 feet just
    fine.)

  5. Do roaming profiles work without a domain controller?

    Do your Remote Web Workplace features work without a domain controller?
    Especially the Connect to Client Computer feature?

    How about Group Policies?
