Hello everyone, i recently made another post which i asked for help since i had no idea what i was going to do basically. I have decided to go with Microsoft Server 2003 OS instead of ubuntu server.
I have no idea how to work with a server os and have no time to learn since i am undertaking this task tomorrow. I would appreciate all and every help i can get.
My scenario: I am working with 4 workstations(running xp pro) and a server(glorified pc).
The network will basically be a file/printer server. I don't know anything else i can do really. Can i make an application server?
So i can just install Office on the server and won't have to install Office on all comptuers? Is that what an application server is?
Anyways, the most important questions are the following:
1) When i install server 03 os into the server machine. What do i have to do to get the workstations appear on the server to then begin placing limations on the users.
2) I want the users to log into to windows everytime they go on the computer. Nobody will have an assigned workstation so can i make a username/password for each user and store that in the server so they can use their username/password on any workstation?
3) How do i set limations on the user? Do i have to go through the group user policy to set limations on their accounts? Such as not being able to access the run, command prompt and etc...
I am really lost and would appreciate all the help i can get. Thank you guys!!
