Today I will be setting up my first office and my friends law firm. He currently only has 5 users in his office and he's going to be using a program called needles to manage all his cases. We got the server from Dell, http://configure.us....=en&s=bsd&cs=04, it is running a xeon e3 1220v2 proc, 8gbs ram, and 2x 500gb hard drives in a raid 1 array so it shouldn't be a slouch.
The workstations are only running Windows 7 home premium so I won't be able to set up active directory but I can still set up just local clients right? Thats question number one.....how do i set up users on a non active directory environment.
The needles software that he's using came with a copy of sybase sql and I'm assuming that all i have to do is follow the checklist that came with it to set up that software and put a copy of needles on all the workstations.
Basically I'm just posting about this because I know I will hit a snag later when I'm setting things up so I would like to have a thread where I can come get some advice. Off to do this thing
