upgrade 2000 network advice
Hi, we currently have 30 desktops and over 50 laptops at our junior school, all XP Pro sp2 clients, and an ageing Win2k server.
Due to building works, we are having a new rack of switches put in, and I'd like to upgrade our server. A few questions:
1- Should I go to 2003 or 2008? What the cheapest? Do I need a license for each client?
2- What's the min spec you would have for a new server? Currently the server handles everything needed for the network (e.g. shared files and printers/AD/DHCP/DNS).
3- anyone recommend any companies? Although I manage the school network, I'm not sure I could setup and install a new server. (is there a migration tool to take the settings from the old to the new server?).
Budget is less than £1500.
Thanks in advance.
