    xp home and server 2k3

    Hi all, i need to beef up my ict suite and have to do it as cheaply as possible. i have noticed that Novatech are doing the ION pc-1222 for 205. however it is xp home.

    can someone tell me how this will interact with svr2k3? am i looking at some issues or will connect quite happily.

    many thanks

    You can't join a Domain with XP Home

    XP Home computers are not able to join a domain, you'd have to upgrade to XP Pro.

    Its possible to work around this, but XP Home will only recognise local accounts so you'd need to get all of the local accounts set up on every computer.

    If you have volume licensing then your best bet would be to talk to your licensing supplier about getting licenses to upgrade them all to XP Pro.

    Speak to Novatech and see if they can OEM license it for Pro for a little bit more, as they're smaller than the big suppliers they might be able to arrange something for you.

    Also, i would speak to some of edugeek's sponsor's and recommended suppliers.

    They might be able to get you something along the same lines of what NovTech are selling and sort out your licence's aswell.. Just a thought?
