Workgroup setting with a DC
Hopefully just a quick question.
The local primary schools network is setup as a workgroup, all accessing shares on a LinkStation.
They have purchased a server which they have asked me to setup for them etc and move everything from the LinkStation to the new box.
I want to setup a pukka Domain for them but because I've never had to, I'm unsure as to what effect having a DC on the LAN will have to the Workgroup clients. As the clients are all manually configured with IP and DNS etc and aren't and won't be connected to the Domain as such for some time I doubt it would effect anything.
I have been given access to a few machines to start on O/S and software deplayments and testing GPO's etc so I thought that if I could get this integrated now and then migrate the remaining PCs over during the Easter break it'll save a bit of hassle.
Can anyone please offer me a sanity check on this please!
