Deploying File Servers

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

Deploying file servers involves installing Windows Server 2003 on the physical servers, adding the servers to the network, and then implementing the design decisions you made throughout this chapter. Organizations that plan to deploy clustered file servers must take the additional step of configuring the clusters; all other organizations can begin by choosing the installation method. Figure 2.19 describes the file server deployment process.
