We are a small organization and I am getting ready to install our first file/print and database (nothing special just calendar and inventory) server. My questions involve set up, security, and performance. What are some good setup techniques: should I use volumes, how should I partition (I am using a raid 5 w 3 disks), should I split the file, print, and databases and maybe the system/boot files into separate partitions. For security, should I rename the admin account, are there any templates, any inbound firewall ports to open, etc. For performance, are there any tweaks or good ideas, how about what counters to monitor. As for security should I or can this be done, create a user account without admin rights and have that as the default login and use that for running services? If someone has any other ideas or tips I would certainly appreciate it. Thanks in advance and if you need more info let me know.
No announcement yet.
