Small Office AD + Fileserver on 1 Server


#1

Hi,
i have 8 users and want to test UCS.
Is it up2date, not to use AD and Fileserver on the same Server?
What are the hardware requirements for AD+Fileserver for 8 users. (AD+Fileserver+Printserver nothing else)
Thx
Chris

Hi,

Even ist is not recommended I am aware of multiple setups which are running AD and Fileservices on the same systems. Some installations have more users and are dealing with large CAD-files.

Any hardware able to run 24/7, equipped with a standard 64Bit Intel/AMD CPU and at least 2GB memory which manufactured during the last 5 years should do. The disksystem depends on your requirements, I personally dont like software RAID but sometimes the budget doesnt allow real hardware RAID

Best Regards,
