    Re: Recommendations on Server configurations

    I would say that a big part of the decision about having one or two domains comes down to staff ability (teaching not technical) before we migrated to one domain we had: one RM2.4 domain and one pure NT4 domain. They were set up not to trust each other and staff kept having issues with differing log ons (come on we know it's hard enough for them to remember one log-on!), saving work in one home directory and it not being in the next, etc.

    Now we have one domain it's much easier for us. LIke limbo said, unless there is completely seperate wiring, the security risks still exist regardless of whether it's one domain or two.

    Well with that info, my suggestions for machines stills stands.

    One thing I would say is steer clear of vendor cabinets, I use standard ones from Mills, Black Box etc due to them normally being a lot cheaper, and they accept anything easily. I was quoted just over £1K for a HP cabinet, and it cost me £300 for the same from Mills.
