    New Server: Install LNM?

    I am looking forward to my new dell server arriving shortly. :P My plan is to promote it into the AD, transfer control of group policy over and away we go. But after getting hold of LNM (thanks Dox_Box) I am wondering whether to give it a go.

    Currently our setup works smoothly so I really need to know if there is anything REALLY worth it in LNM. The bulk user creation does sound good, but is that enough for me to give it a go? Does it take away any of the current control I have on the server in Group policy manager etc??

    Any comments would be welcome.

    Noooo. LNM is only good for brand new AD install and cannot be added later. Besides , it is a total pain and is very (VERY) hardware specific and will bomb out repeatedly if it finds something it doesn't like. You should try it on a VM first I think if you want to look into it further.

    even then, a VM isn't ideal, as it makes a generic machine rather than one specifiy to your hardware
