Using an additional server

You can add one or more additional servers to your Windows Small Business Server 2003 network. You can use an additional server to run client or server applications or to enable a Terminal Server connection. For more information about Terminal Server, see Terminal Services (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=46900). For information about using Terminal Server in a small business environment, see the white paper at the Microsoft Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=17050).

The additional server can run Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003. You can add the server to your network by using the Add Server Computer Wizard. You can manage it along with the server running Windows Small Business Server 2003 by using the Server Management console.

The Add Server Computer Wizard also configures the additional server. The following features are configured:

By default, the Internet home page points to My Company (http://companyweb/).

  • By default, the Favorites menu in Internet Explorer contains links to a number of useful Web sites.
  • Outlook XP and Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 are configured to use Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 in profiles set up for new users. These profiles specify Exchange server connections and define account information. If the additional server contains existing profiles, Windows Small Business Server adds Exchange server to the profile and sets the new profile as the default.
  • My Network Places, which gives users quick access to personal and shared folders on the server and to document libraries on the company's internal Web site, is configured.
