  • looking for a "get started" on sbs 2008?


    I'm fairly new at SBS 2008 (I did install a few sbs 2003, each time just straight forward installs)

    does someone have a good tip/doc or link on a "quick configure" for SBS 2008
    (installation is done) so like :
    - these are the steps to go through to setup sbs with users, shares, exchange, mailadres policy, pop3 connector, smtp feed, roles, ...
    - pitfalls to watch out for

    and after that
    quick how to's like :
    - how to automatically install network printers on the clients
    - how to automatically setup the outlook client for exchange
    - how to make sure some drivemappings are mapped at the client
    - how to make sure certain shortcuts are on the desktop of the client
    ** noting the fact that we cannot work with full roaming profiles
    I found already that the group policy thing has a lot of possibilities, but also can become complex/confusing very quickly


    I've looked here with search, as well as googling for it, and the result is lots of bits and pieces, not always easy to read, os I was wondering if one of the experts here, has some good tips....

    I appreciate the tips

      The SBS 2008 Unleashed book has been good to me so far. You may want to look into that.
