Windows 7: Server Used in Schools and Workplaces

Server Used in Schools and Workplaces

I am working on setting up a home server using Windows 2003 Server. At my college, I can go to any computer and login using the same credentials. I cannot think of what you would call this system. They also do this in my office. I simply want to know what this system is called so I can research how to set it up on my future home server. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in Advance,

What you are looking for is called Active Directory and your server has to be setup as a doman.

Hi all I've posted another thread expressing my disappointment with XP mode -- great Idea but flawed implementation IMO. I'm just curious to see if anybody is actually using this in a WORK PLACE / CORPORATE LAN environment. I've seen plenty of users testing this on a HOME computer but is...
