You cognizance encouraged satisfactory beside the some other Windows versions that you are now thinking of confronting Server 2003. The impression can be a teeny-weeny intimidating, but it is not as bad as you weighing. This is a rough and ready instructor on the not like modules in stock in Windows Server 2003. Depending on how you are planning on mistreatment the server, that will determine the implements of war requirements of the gadget. Just because this is a "server", you do not need to devote complete $5,000 on the piece of equipment. That is a massively big thought. My recommendations for least requirements are as follows:
- Motherboard With Onboard Video/Sound/Lan
- 1 GB Of MemoryPost ads:

- An External Backup Device (i.e USB Hard Drive or Tape Drive)
Server 2003 heaps the said way XP does. Set the bios to punt from the CD/DVD drive, pop the saucer in and haunt the information. Once it is full installed and fraught you will be taken to the "Manage Your Server" projection screen. On this surface you can enable and put together the succeeding options:
- File server
- enabled by default. Basically allows folders to be common from the server
- SharePoint Services
- Creates a web where on earth users can allotment information
- Print Server
- A trained worker installed straight to the dining-room attendant will act as a lattice printer
- Application Server
- Turn you dining-room attendant into a web restaurant attendant as recovered as FTP host
- Mail Server - Kinda futile unless you have swap installed
- Terminal Server
- Lets users login straight to the restaurant attendant to run applications
- Remote Access/VPN Server
- Connect to the restaurant attendant remotely via VPN
- Domain Controller (Active Directory)
- Server controls policies for the entire gridiron domain
- DNS Server
- Controls label to IP computer code resolution
- DHCP Server
- Assignees IP addresses to DHCP clients
- Streaming Media Server
- Streams visual communication glad finished the web
- WINS Server
- Older baptize to IP computer code conclusion principle.
Whatever your requirements are will establish which of these options get enabled and configured. In this article we are going to in brief touch on Terminal Server, Remote Access, Domain Controller w/Active Directory and DNS Server. I will get into more ins and outs almost all of them in prox articles.
Terminal Server: As mentioned quicker Terminal Server allows users to login to the server to run applications installed on the waiter. Besides sanctionative Terminal Server you will besides need a Terminal License Server. This is where the licenses, to person Terminal Server, are installed. Depending on the amount of licenses you have that will ascertain how various users can login. Terminal Server and Terminal License Server can some be on one device. To enable the licensing waiter go to cartel panel -> add/remove programs -> add/remove windows components -> prize "Terminal Server Licensing" and instal.
To login to the dining-room attendant from a workstation you can use Remote Desktop which is improved exactly into Windows XP and Vista. To breakthrough far-flung upside clink embark on -> all programs -> paraphernalia -> subject area -> secluded top. When far-flung upper side appears get into in the restaurant attendant nickname or IP computer code to connect.
Remote Access/VPN: Virtual Private Networking gives you the skill to remotely border to your server and slice it raw materials. The waiter will designate you an IP address either from its DHCP mere or you can manually enter upon a stock of IP addresses the restaurant attendant will mitt out to its out-of-the-way clients. Once allied the side by side tactical maneuver will be establishing a joint to the server's shared riches. To do this clink instigation -> run -> and group in dining-room attendant designation orserver IP Address (replace near your server's language unit or IP computer address) if everything is configured appropriately your server's shares will turn up.
Domain Controller: Setting your restaurant attendant as a Domain Controller way you can domination exchange cards logical argument through with your server. If all the workstations are on the server's domain, done party and/or sphere policy you can limit user's cardiovascular exercise. Control where they are allowed to go and what they are able to silver. With the Domain Controller comes the Active Directory. In the Active Directory you can add net/server users, perspective/configure domain controllers and environment workstations. This is where on earth you distribute users their privileges and whether they can login to the waiter via Terminal Services.
DNS Server: As explicit DNS resolves IP addresses to easier to remind names. Lets say your server's IP code is 192.168.1.2 and its dub is PCServer. DNS allows you to search victimisation PCServer or else of basic cognitive process 192.168.1.2. Out of all the modules this is the one that is record puzzling in locale up the right way.
This was a awfully rudimentary instruction to quite a lot of of the modules ready in Windows Server 2003. In planned articles I will be active into further account roughly all one.
