Small domain setup

By Andrew06 ·
I would just like a little bit of help regarding a new domain setup.

I know how to specify the domain name, setup active directory, setup dhcp and all that...but the main thing I guess I am asking about would be licensing?

I recently had a small business ask me about setting up a small domain with about 20-30 users that needed access to files across the domain, aswell as email access.

Could someone please help me understand about licensing, about simulatenous connections and concurrent licensing? Becauses thats where I tend to get really confused.

Also, would someone please be able to recommend the specs of a server that would be suitable for:

File serving,
Active Directory,
Web Proxy

Small Business Server 2003

If your domain is not going to grow in the user base beyond 30 users, you should look at Small Business Server 2003:

Licensing is either by user or by system, I would recommend that you license by user, then if a user has a laptop and a desktop, you don't end up purchasing 2 licenses.
