Linux replace Windows Server??
Can Linux be used as a Server instead of buying Windows 2003 Server.
I know it can be a server for a lot of services but, what I am talking about in specific is can it be used as a domain controller. In other words as an authentication server for Windows XP PC’s?
I am setting up a small business and would like to bring Linux into things here.
I have been using Mepis as my workstation for over a year now.
I need it to be the Server for a Windows PC environment currently using 12 XP units and 6 printers, (eventually I will be replacing the Win PCs with Linux) it will need to authenticate, run RAID-1, run as a print server, and act as a data server.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance…
