How much to build a new server?
Just looking in to getting a new server and been quoted by our usual supplier but need a few ideas if its reasonable. The hardware costs are usually not bad so not too concerned about those at the moment (as its only in the ideas stage at the moment) but been quoted as 4 days to build the new one with 2008 and transfer all data and shares/users etc accross and test/commission it for £1300 ex vat. Cant do it myself for reasons of lack of experience (getting experience on this project is not suitable) and time available (as I work across 4 schools in the week). Doe this seem a reasonable time/cost?
