Want To Ask RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to use Windows Home Server as the operating system for a SOHO?

    Like for sharing data, printer and such over more than 4 pc?

    Any hardware recommendation like router, switch and such ?

    Or any other suggestion.

    Your suggestion is greatly appreciated.

    Thank You

  • Yes, there are 10 CALs with it.  Switch I'd say something quality gigabit.  The blue Netgear stuff is popular with small businesses.

  • While it's possible to use WHS as the only server for a small business, it's not designed for that use, and at this time it's probably inadvisable to use it as a file server due to the file corruption issue detailed in kb946676.

    However, it's a relatively cheap backup/restore solution for small businesses.

  • SBS (small business server) I reckon - you can get pre-configured systems from Dell, HP all ready to go.
