workgroup domain conversion

By papula ·
i am converting a workgroup to a domain with about 35 computers and 4 mid to high end printers.

i have a general understanding of whats going on here, but id like to know more.

when i create the domain structure, how do can i publish printers to the domain, for easy searching?

once its published, how do i find it?

also- im converting our email server from visnetic mail server to exhcange, can someone give me somewhat detailed steps on how to do that?

thanks in advance.

Printers are objects in Active Directory and can be published and user access permissions assigned just as a shared folder on a workstation. It is searchable in Active Directory by name.

Visnetic mail I'm not if there is a migration option available however, from workgroup to a domain structure which includes exchange, you'll have to create user accounts so might as well have Active Directory create the mailboxes for them. Might have to do a switch over from your old mail system [and domain name] to the new Active Directory system
