My organization has to spin off some of our clinics in a few months; I'd like to run this by you all. Currently the users there are in our domain, and use our exchange for mail etc... Can I buy them a new server with SBS(Small Business Server), create a new child domain in our existing forest using SBS? Or maybe a server with Windows Server 2003, promote to a domain controller in its own child domain, with exchange 2000 standard (I have an unused license). There are only about 50 users there. I'm looking for the best solution, and need to plan for it now. Doug Stelley Network Admin.
