Microsoft Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition (1)
Today, Microsoft launches its new series of Windows server - Windows Server 2003. Windows Server 2003 taps on the proven server technology of Windows NT and 2000 and brings you the familiar Windows XP interface for easy administration of your organisation.
If you are familiar with how Windows XP is used as a client, Windows Server 2003 brings you the familiarity of GUI. In the installation, we went through the wizard by feeding answers to it. As we are using a SilconImage SATA interface card with a Seagate SATA HD, we used the Windows 2000 drivers to install Advanced Controllers during the inital set up phase. It went through without a hitch.
The first screen that greeted us is the MANAGE YOUR SERVER, over here we can set up the server to run optimised for the various roles. If you are familiar with adminstrating NT, you would have known that in a IP network, you would probably reduce the number of protocols and move the protocol stack as the highest priority protocol if multiple protocols is used across the network. You would also have tried to disable certain services for better background tasks. Well, selecting the server roles will just set the best settings for you for maximum throughput and install the necessary services for you.

It is always a headache to manage group policies
in an enterprise as some users are part of various departments. So when it comes
to accessing certain resources, we have to explicitly check which group this
user belongs to. In Windows Server 2003, Microsoft has released a new Group
Policy management solution that unifies management of Group Policy. The
Microsoft Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) provides a single solution for
managing all Group Policy-related tasks.
