Chapter 9. Networking with Microsoft Win... > Installing Microsoft Windows Server ...

Installing Microsoft Windows Server 2003

Before you install Windows Server 2003 on a computer, particularly in cases where you are creating a new network infrastructure, you should create a map of what your network is going to look like. In particularly, you should outline the servers and other resource devices, such as printers, that will provide your network clients with services.

The role that a particular server will fill on the network should be determined long before you install the network operating system. The server’s role, such as a domain controller (domain controllers are discussed later in this chapter) or a file server, will not only dictate the server’s hardware configuration, but will also dictate the configuration of that server (and the services that it provides). We discuss server roles later in this chapter. Another important aspect of installing the network operating system is making sure that your server hardware is adequate to run the NOS and is also compatible with the Windows NOS.
