Creating Workgroups

A single network segment can contain dozens of machines—far more than a normal user would need to access on a regular basis. Microsoft peer networks are therefore broken up into still smaller collections of machines called workgroups, as shown in Figure 35.5. A workgroup is a number of users whose relationship can be defined by any criteria that is convenient to the organization of the company or the network. Workgroup members may be users performing the same task, members of the same department or project team, or simply a group of people that sit near each other. For whatever reason, these users form a logical grouping based on their need to share the resources of each other's machines.
