You surface positive adequate next to the opposite Windows versions that you are now rational of effort Server 2003. The concept can be a bitty intimidating, but it is not as bad as you estimate. This is a prime instructor on the distinct modules getable in Windows Server 2003. Depending on how you are preparation on exploitation the server, that will establish the arms requirements of the apparatus. Just because this is a "server", you do not entail to spend over $5,000 on the mechanism. That is a remarkably big idea. My recommendations for minimum requirements are as follows:
- Motherboard With Onboard Video/Sound/Lan
- 1 GB Of MemoryPost ads:
Hanes Toddler Boys Non-Skid Crew Socks 6 pack, 2T-3T-White / The Sak Roots Convertible Flap Wallet / Rebecca Minkoff Best Friends 15PRBFXF12Iphone Case
- P4 3.0 Ghz or Athlon 64 3200
- 160GB SATA Hard Drive
- DVD-RWPost ads:
The North Face Surge Daypack - Women's / Osprey Talon 11-Litre Backpack / Deuter Kids' Fox 30 Backpack
- An External Backup Device (i.e USB Hard Drive or Tape Drive)
Server 2003 gobs the one and the same way XP does. Set the bios to footwear from the CD/DVD drive, pop the saucer in and trace the book of instructions. Once it is fully installed and fraught you will be interpreted to the "Manage Your Server" peak. On this silver screen you can enable and assemble the stalking options:
- File server
- enabled by failure to pay. Basically allows folders to be shared from the server
- SharePoint Services
- Creates a web wherever users can allowance information
- Print Server
- A printer installed exactly to the server will act as a make friends printer
- Application Server
- Turn you restaurant attendant into a web restaurant attendant as cured as FTP host
- Mail Server - Kinda senseless unless you have swapping installed
- Terminal Server
- Lets users login head-on to the server to run applications
- Remote Access/VPN Server
- Connect to the dining-room attendant remotely via VPN
- Domain Controller (Active Directory)
- Server controls policies for the total web domain
- DNS Server
- Controls label to IP code resolution
- DHCP Server
- Assignees IP addresses to DHCP clients
- Streaming Media Server
- Streams picture cheerful all over the web
- WINS Server
- Older signature to IP address resolve trick.
Whatever your necessarily are will establish which of these options get enabled and designed. In this nonfiction we are going to in brief touch on Terminal Server, Remote Access, Domain Controller w/Active Directory and DNS Server. I will get into further trivia in the region of all of them in incoming articles.
Terminal Server: As mentioned earlier Terminal Server allows users to login to the waiter to run applications installed on the restaurant attendant. Besides enabling Terminal Server you will also stipulation a Terminal License Server. This is where on earth the licenses, to user Terminal Server, are installed. Depending on the magnitude of licenses you have that will make certain how some users can login. Terminal Server and Terminal License Server can both be on one device. To alter the licensing server go to charge flat solid -> add/remove programs -> add/remove windows components -> select "Terminal Server Licensing" and inaugurate.
To login to the dining-room attendant from a digital computer you can use Remote Desktop which is built head-on into Windows XP and Vista. To find secluded top side clink arrival -> all programs -> accoutrements -> subject -> lonely top side. When secluded upper side appears enter in the server label or IP address to fit into place.
Remote Access/VPN: Virtual Private Networking gives you the fitness to remotely slot in to your dining-room attendant and proportion it materials. The waiter will select you an IP computer code either from its DHCP tarn or you can manually go into a list of IP addresses the restaurant attendant will appendage out to its cut off clients. Once interconnected the next tread will be establishing a relation to the server's shared assets. To do this chink make the first move -> run -> and genre in restaurant attendant christen orserver IP Address (replace near your server's cross or IP address) if everything is configured appropriately your server's shares will turn up.
Domain Controller: Setting your server as a Domain Controller manner you can corner the market network set of guidelines through your server. If all the workstations are on the server's domain, finished drove and/or orbit logical argument you can confine user's movements. Control where they are allowed to go and what they are able to occurrence. With the Domain Controller comes the Active Directory. In the Active Directory you can add meet people/server users, attitude/configure area controllers and area workstations. This is where you elect users their privileges and whether they can login to the server via Terminal Services.
DNS Server: As expressed DNS resolves IP addresses to easier to call back calumny. Lets say your server's IP computer address is 192.168.1.2 and its mark is PCServer. DNS allows you to check out victimization PCServer as an alternative of memory 192.168.1.2. Out of all the modules this is the one that is most incomprehensible in environment up decently.
This was a highly grassroots prelude to quite a few of the modules open in Windows Server 2003. In forthcoming articles I will be active into additional listing about all one.
