Complete change of school network?
I have been asked to look into upgrading our school network next, not this, summer.
We currently have 2 separate networks. Curriculum and Admin.
Admin is server 2003 with XP. 2 servers. 50 workstations. Supported by the LA IT support.
Curriculum is CC3. 2 servers. 200 workstations.
I am trying to figure out how I can merge the two networks into one big happy network hopefully without the need for CC3 or support (or lack of it) form the LA IT support team.
I guess I need some suggestions on alternative to CC3 and if anyone can point out any pitfalls I may come across?
I am thinking Ranger across windows server 2003/2008 as although I am pretty efficient with plain Windows I would feel happier having the extra tools that Ranger have to offer.
Has anyone else recently gone through a similar experience?
