Windows Sever Foundation

Does this product have a 'regular' windows interface? Can I use it to run .CMD scripts and essentially be the network workhorse for backing up folders?



Yes, it has a regular interface. It's limited to 15 users MAXIMUM and if setup as a DC it must be the FSMO master. It's also limited in hardware capabilities - 32 GB of RAM and 1 CPU.

I like to have a network "bitch" . Something that can run all of the backup scripts and be a general dogs body. Typically, thats my workstation. This might be the thing I'm looking for.

Can it join the domain as a member server and not be a DC?



> Can it join the domain as a member server and not be a DC?

I believe not:Must be the root domain controller in a domain
If you replace the current root DC ... but that's probably not what you have in mind.

Think af this server as the old Small Business Server without all the bells and whistles (Exchange etc.) of this.

No - if you read the information in the link I provided, it's quite clear on this:

You will receive a warning message if the server is not joined to an Active Directory® domain at the root of the forest. If you do not correct this, you will receive notifications advising you of the violation of the terms of the license agreement. Eventually, the server will shut down. If your server is not joined to the domain at the root of the forest, disjoin the domain and then rejoin the domain at the root.



I modified the Topic Area for this from Microsoft Access to Microsoft Server
