III. Performing the Basic Tasks > 14. Managing Computers on the Network

Chapter 14. Managing Computers on the Network

Microsoft Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2011 streamlines the client management process, making it easy to connect computers to the network and manage them from a single console.

When you connect a client computer to the SBS network, SBS automatically configures the computer for optimal operation in an SBS environment. Existing accounts on the computer are migrated to the users assigned to that computer, the Windows Firewall configuration is set to work properly on an SBS network, and the Internet Explorer home page is set to the internal website.

Connecting Computers to the Network

SBS supports the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP Professional; the Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions of Windows Vista; and the Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions of Windows 7. Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 are also supported, either as member servers or secondary domain controllers, but they can’t be joined to the domain using the SBS wizards.
