New Server for Yukon and W2K3

  • Dear All,

    We are looking for new server acting as our main DC as well as SQL Server 2K.  In the future, maybe year or two later, we'll upgrade to W2K3 and Yukon.  Do you have any spec info for Yukon?  I could find nothing on  or Do you have any recommendation for this new server?  We are going to pick up one from Dell.

    Thanks for your help!!

  • Hi

    I can't help you with the W2K3/Yukon spec unfortunrately. As for SQL2k the spec will depend upon what the server is doing, number of concurrent users etc. Maybe if you can provide more info for what the server will be doing someone could give you some tips.

    One thing I noticed is that you plan to run the server as your primary domain controller and have sql server running on it. That is a very bad idea. Microsoft themselves don't recommend SQL Server running on the same server as your DC. There are security risks when doing that. There should be info on the net about that.

    Hope this helps
