Windows 7: Setting up a small business network...

Setting up a small business network...


I'm trying to help my friend set up his network for his business.

Currently he has 6 PC's connected to a switch. One of the PC's is setup as a server and all are connected to a homegroup. This has worked for him for 18 months.

The problem with this is all the computers are standalone and the user accounts are specific to each PC.

I'd like to set it up properly with network logins (?!) So users can login to any of the PC's.

How do I do this?

Thanks in advance

You may need "Windows Server Essentials" (Small Business Server) set up.

for info.

Then create "roaming user profiles" if you want to get the same desktop etc on all machines you login or a regular profile just to login.
