Application Server?

by guy In reply to Application Server?

When you install NT server, choose "Member or Stand Alone Server". That's all you do from the pure NT point of view. Check the type of NT Enterprise edition is required for Exchange.

Application servers just concentrate on their jobe e.g. exchange server or SQL database server, the member servers do not respond to logon requests, they leave that to the Domain controllers (PDC and BDC)

Once you have installed NT server, then install your applications.

To simply answer your question, the term 'application server' defines the FUNCTION of the server, not the configuration.

For example, if I install NT4.0 and then install MS Exchange, the server can be called an Exchange Application Server.

Furthermore, if I install NT4.0 and then configure it to share multiple printers, it can then be called a PRINT server. Servers CAN fill multiple roles (i.e. application/print server) but it is not recommended unless cost is a great factor.

Another scenario is that a server ONLY stores user shares and user data. In this case, it is a DATA server.

The same NT software is used to install the Operating System in all these scenarios. The different servers are simply playing different roles.

By they way, if you open up network properties (right click network neighborhood and select properties) on the winnt server, and go to the services tab, select server and click on properties, you can configure it to one of four:

1. Minimize memory used

2. Balanced

3. Maximize throughput for File Sharing

4. Maximize throughput for Network Applications

NT will then focus its resources applicable to the above choice.
