Current network is running Windows Small Business Server 2003 with 8 work stations. 7 of the workstations use Win XP Pro with SP2. One work station is running Win 2000 Pro with SP4.
2 of the 8 work stations are going to be replaced, including the one running Win 2000 Pro. The server is also going to be replaced with a new Quad Core Barcelona running Windows Small Business Server 2003.
With the two work stations that I will be replaceing, can I bring two machines running Win Vista Business 64bit into the mix? I know that I will need to get with the different software makers before I can fully do that, but just say, not including those, but just as a file server. The the 6 other machines be able to talk to the Vista machines, and will the Vista machines be able to connect to the server without any serious issues?
Other then the users having to get to know a new OS, I would like this to be as painless as possible.
