    Compatability Vista Home Premium and Windows Server 2003?

    Thinking about XP and the fact that you need XP Pro to log onto a Windows 2003 server network are there any similar compatability issues with Vista - is there a minimum level of Vista required before log on can be effected?

    Of course, if you are using Vista Home then you can still access networked resources using folder redirection - one of the laptops used by us here came with Vista Home, and aside from not being able to join the domain, everything else works fine.

    You can use \\servername to get access to your server/s from the VH computer, and add shortcuts to any programs held on the server/s to it for use.

    As we use roaming profiles + a domain here, I wouldn't give a VHome laptop to staff to use, but for us techie's who know ways around it there's no bother really.
