I second that appraisal. Adding the AD overhead to a Vantage server
produces the worst of both worlds.

I personally would not have my Vantage server acting as a DC nor hosting
Active Directory. Dedicate a box to it and adding the Vantage server as
a member server in the domain will not affect your Vantage installation
as long as you keep the same computer name and IP Address.

We are running Vantage 6.1 on Windows 2003 Server. The server was
originally set up as a Workgroup, but we are going to convert it to a
Domain Controller.

What impact will this have on Vantage?

Edward,

What is the reason you are wanting to do this ?

Would the server be the PDC or just a BDC ?

Will you be moving to AD in the near future ?

New IT supplier coming in to upgrade workstations and install a VPN. They
have recommended that the server be upgraded to a DC, from what I have seen
the PDC and BDC issues no longer exist in Server 2003.

I have spoken to the Tech guy and he is now on the fence, because "if it
aint broke, don't fix it." I have heard so many issues though the group
about AD that I have been happy to stay a workgroup.

I guess a good question to the group is what is the advantage to running as
a DC and using AD?

Edward,

I agree with Todd. Do you have the additional servers to do this or are you
running "everything" off your Vantage server ?

We just DCPROMO..ed our Vantage server back to a member server. The domain
controller role was too much additional overhead. Vantage is much faster
now.

Subject: RE: [Vantage] Change from Workgroup to Domain Controller


New IT supplier coming in to upgrade workstations and install a VPN. They
have recommended that the server be upgraded to a DC, from what I have
seen
the PDC and BDC issues no longer exist in Server 2003.

I have spoken to the Tech guy and he is now on the fence, because "if it
aint broke, don't fix it." I have heard so many issues though the group
about AD that I have been happy to stay a workgroup.

I guess a good question to the group is what is the advantage to running
as
a DC and using AD?

Edward,

What is the reason you are wanting to do this ?

Would the server be the PDC or just a BDC ?

Will you be moving to AD in the near future ?

We have one server doing it all. Vantage is it's primary function,
secondary is a fileserver for files and UPS and ACT databases (both apps run
local).

Edward,

I agree with Todd. Do you have the additional servers to do this or are you
running "everything" off your Vantage server ?

Thanks,

We have two other servers that manage AD and don't have the overhead running
on the Vantage server.

That said, I do like using AD. As an administrator, you can really manage
computers in the tree. I help out at the school as a volunteer gig and use
profiles to control time of day access, desktop appearance, screen saver
settings, password complexity, Internet Proxy settings, etc. If you use
Windows Server Update Services (WSUS - a local version of Microsoft Update)
then you must use AD. I think it's a worthwhile tool if your workstations are
Win2K or higher.

Mark
Thank you for the feedback everyone.

I'm not sure a new server is in the budget for now. I think I will urge
them to leave us as a workgroup.

Did you mention the size of your environment? How many clients? How many users? A lot of shares? A lot of printers to host?

I server to control your domain, which I assume is small given that you are currently a workgroup, can be had for under $2000. My current Global Catalog server is an old Dell PE4400 with dual 400Mhz PIII's. It hosts AD, Print, DNS and DHCP Services. I have a couple hundred users in a dozen locations and thus far this configuration has functioned just fine. I do have a couple of additional DC's, but this one bears the largest load.

Active Directory is an enormous advantage over workgroup for security reasons, manageability of users and computers as pointed out earlier by Mark. Group Policy alone justifies the change. Not sure whether or not WSUS requires AD or not but it too in my opinion is a staple in any environment. Do a little homework and I am sure you can justify an inexpensive server to migrate all services except Vantage to.

Todd

I strongly concur!
It would not be a good idea to have your Vantage server also used as a
domain controller.
It would definitely have a significant impact on the operation of
Vantage.

We just DCPROMO..ed our Vantage server back to a member server. The
domain
controller role was too much additional overhead. Vantage is much
faster
now.

New IT supplier coming in to upgrade workstations and install a VPN.
They
have recommended that the server be upgraded to a DC, from what I have
seen
the PDC and BDC issues no longer exist in Server 2003.

I have spoken to the Tech guy and he is now on the fence, because "if
it
aint broke, don't fix it." I have heard so many issues though the
group
about AD that I have been happy to stay a workgroup.

I guess a good question to the group is what is the advantage to
running
as
a DC and using AD?

Edward,

What is the reason you are wanting to do this ?

Would the server be the PDC or just a BDC ?

Will you be moving to AD in the near future ?

Did you mention the size of your environment? How many users? How many
clients etc? I assume it is fairly small since you are currently a
workgroup. You can pick up a server that you can host all services
except Vantage on for under a couple grand for a small environment. I
have around 200 users in a dozen locations. My 'main' domain
controller(hosts the global catalog, Active Directory, Print, DNS and
DHCP) It is a Dell PE4400 with dual 400MHz PIII's. No performance issues
what so ever.

Active Directory, in my opinion is a must. Group Policy alone justifies
it. Mark also mentioned WSUS. Although I am not sure that AD is a
requirement for WSUS, it is a must for any Windows network...IMHO.
Security and manageability. Pretty simple. If you do a little homework I
am sure you can easily justify $2000.00 for a new server. The 'all eggs
in one basket' argument works as well. Go for the domain route, you'll
be glad you did.....so long as you don't do it on your Vantage server.

Thank you for the feedback everyone.

I'm not sure a new server is in the budget for now. I think I will
urge
them to leave us as a workgroup.

I wouldn't run any enterprise database on a DC, not even something
native like MS SQL.

If you are only running one server in a workgroup environment I would
leave things as they are.

I'm assuming you are not running an Exchange server for e-mail as it
depends heavily on AD to run but if you decide to use AD and Exchange
then I would definitely consider a separate server.

Subject: RE: [Vantage] Change from Workgroup to Domain Controller

Did you mention the size of your environment? How many users? How many
clients etc? I assume it is fairly small since you are currently a
workgroup. You can pick up a server that you can host all services except
Vantage on for under a couple grand for a small environment. I have around
200 users in a dozen locations. My 'main' domain controller(hosts the global
catalog, Active Directory, Print, DNS and
DHCP) It is a Dell PE4400 with dual 400MHz PIII's. No performance issues
what so ever.

Active Directory, in my opinion is a must. Group Policy alone justifies it.
Mark also mentioned WSUS. Although I am not sure that AD is a requirement
for WSUS, it is a must for any Windows network...IMHO.
Security and manageability. Pretty simple. If you do a little homework I am
sure you can easily justify $2000.00 for a new server. The 'all eggs in one
basket' argument works as well. Go for the domain route, you'll be glad you
did.....so long as you don't do it on your Vantage server.

Thank you for the feedback everyone.

I'm not sure a new server is in the budget for now. I think I will
urge
them to leave us as a workgroup.
