That is right, I was told the same thing on a SIMS Technical Awareness course a few weeks ago

Windows 7 is supported from the Spring Release by Capita.

Just a thought, why not have RAID 10? Gives the benefit of additional redundancy and fast HDD rebuilds should you need it!

Yep, its a good idea it was suggested earlier. RAID 10 would be ideal if it can be budgeted for.

It got recalled because it was replacing the quickletter template with the default one. It's no resolved and has been released. It wasn't an issue if you had moved the template to the My Docs folder.

Will you be running anything other than SIMS on that server? It does seem like overkill to me... still, if you do buy it, you won't have to worry about upgrading your SIMS server for a very, very long time.

Yep it will only be running Sims (well initially unless it is using very little resources we might add other things on).
It was going to be an admin DC and sims server (the one that it was going to replace does these jobs) but due to having to switch to Server 2003/2008 (we run Windows 2000 at the moment! ) and the fact that we go through BSF for Sept 2012 it is easier to just add a new server for Sims.

Had a quote for a HP DL360 only last week with an 2xE5630 processor and 16GB of ram for around £3200k with 4 x 500GB HDDs and redundent power, why not get something similar, make it a VM host and virtualise anything that isn't currently virtualised, depending on what backup solution you use you can do full machine backups as well as data backups that way, makes much better use of the hardware for not much extra cost (well depends what sort of cost you consider £1k to be)
