Doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a try. Grab a few books, set up a few virtual machines and play. I'm not kidding when I say that it will take a week or two at most to get up to speed with it and it will save you a shed load of money in both the short and long term.Quote:
Neither myself or my network manager have ever supported a "DIY" network, so we're not trying to claim we are clever. This is why we want an "OTS" network.
To be blunt, if anyone claiming to be a "network manager" can't grasp the concepts behind it, then they are in the wrong job! That's how easy it is.
To my knowledge you won't find anything other than RM if you want a managed AD, the entire concept is alien in the corporate world.
