Hi Simon

We a web design company, hence most of the servers are web servers. We are
a fairly small company in terms of our number of employees, however yes
I suppose we are not a small enterprise.

Thanks for your comments although I had considered most of these. We do
allow our users unrestricted internet access. I will investigate this.

Good morning to all

I have just started working in a small company with about 30 servers and
an equal number of desktop machines (all running w2k p
>o). Currently we
have NDS on a Netware server and also active directory on Windows 2000 Server.
I suspect that this could be responsable for both a slow response time on
in accessing files and folders on the network shares and also for other

I am considering converting the Netware Server to a w2k server and possibly
then switching to Native mode. Has anyone else been in a similar position

the network? Anything to be aware of?

Any advise most appreciated.
