I'm looking for guidance with a pending server OS upgrade (currently on NT). I have a network of less than 10 users, and recently upgraded all connected PCs to Windows XP Pro. Our server is used primarily as a file server, and we do not currently have our own e-mail server. My question is, do the benefits of a server OS (such as Win2K with Exchange) warrant the setup and maintenance time for a network this size? I am the SysAdmin, but am primarily in a project manager role, and have not set up a network since NT truly was "new" technology (which may impact your response).
I appreciate any feedback you can offer. Thanks!
