SBS 2008 and TS Gateway

Roger Crawford Roger Crawford Profile: Roger Crawford

Really if you think about it TS Gateway is a function of 2008 Server which was a great addition as I have customers who uses this a lot. They also use the Published Apps of 2008 Server which is another story. With SBS 2008 the connection to the client computers is driven by TS Gateway through the...

SBS 2008 Test and some Thanksgiving day Ramblings

Roger Crawford Roger Crawford Profile: Roger Crawford

Well I passed my SBS 2008 configuring test which I guess that makes me a MCTS now which I should have passed after being involved with the SBS 2008 TAP but you never know about those tests as sometimes real life and those tests just don't seem to follow the same path. It really makes you wonder is...

Standard Server 2003 Migration to SBS 2008 Part 3

Roger Crawford Roger Crawford Profile: Roger Crawford

1. Now is the time to prep the domain for the 2008 Server which if you was migrating from a SBS 2003 Server you would put the SBS 2008 DVD in and run the Migration Prep Tool and do these steps. Well this is not a SBS 2003 Server so you would open a command prompt browse to the DVD Drive and the...

Roger Crawford Roger Crawford Profile: Roger Crawford

I was going to finish this with the continued migration but thought we should talk about some of the system requirements for the SBS 2008 Server before we continue. On the SBS 2008 Servers I am specing we start with 8 Gig of RAM as the base and then adding memory from there depending upon the...
