Good evening!

Came enitity in a small organization is a mini — hotel.

Original data:

6 computers, about 10 regular users. There are computers that share multiple users. OS Windows 7 everywhere.

1 server — 1C, Filipovich. Windows Server.

Couple MFP, a couple of printers.


Based on all this there are some issues purely from experience, who believes I'm wondering:

1. Whether it is necessary to lift the domain? Now, each computer has only one user without a password. The pros and cons of a domain in this case?

2. How best to organize the files? Now people are creating a bunch of files locally and only occasionally drags everything reluctantly to a server, if you need to exchange. How to do better? Clear local folders type Desktop?

3. At the end of the year around the end of the term of the license for anti-virus software on all PCs. I plan to order something to have gained, but the problem is that the server is not for those who distributes the Internet — would it be possible to put the necessary antivirus and to protect thereby the whole network?


What would you personally made recommendations for the organization of such network? Thanks in advance

1. IMHO, worth it, especially if one user can log in from different computers (roaming profiles are good too). Passwords are mandatory, and at least versioning (history of edits) in the documents.
\r
2. If no immediate plans of implementing a document management system and roaming profiles don't want the network folder(s), IMHO, always under the company documents (personal files can be stored locally) with a regular bacopa and a tested recovery procedure of the server in case of failure of the screw/motherboard. You can try to use synchronization of folders and files, if users will complain about slow speeds on the network.
\r
3. In principle, implement an antivirus scan (e.g., registration/lock) all traffic and network files only through the server is possible, but the probability of infection of workstations will be higher than if the antivirus was working locally stick, Packed viruses, etc. the server I can not check.
\r
4. Read the Law No. 152-FZ I think is a very big trick to small business in General, and to mini-hotels are very-very big, because personal information under other laws/regulations they are required to collect and process (to be supplied by other operators) and not where it is done manually on paper.

It would be possible to pay attention to the solution from Microsoft in the face of Windows Small Business Server

It is already configured all you might need for a small local network:
— file storage;
— configure and control user access (to the Internet, files, computers);
— antivirus protection;
— updates;
— backup;
— mail server;
— web server (internal and external website of the organization).

For Internet distribution it is better to put the router.
On the server to run WSUS and distribute the updates to other machines. Antivirus you network does not protect never, the network should "obespechivat" the correct setting.
And don't forget to disable unnecessary services.
You can put OpenVPN and connect to the server through it. To deliver long correct long password.

1. In principle it is not necessary.
2. Look at roaming user profiles
3. WSUS, local security policy and antivirus should be sufficient. Well, you can still some simple backup to organize.

1. I think you should raise the domain. Causes — the answer to question number 2.
2. Setting up a domain with roaming profiles. This is useful if:
a) users working on different computer constantly
b) in case of breakage of a computer user sits down at a "foreign" feel at home there.
In addition to the roaming profile folder redirect My documents to the server, all users explain that if they don't want to lose the fruits of their work — it is necessary to store the necessary info is in my documents.
All this is true only under the condition that the server you have RAID (Otherwise the reliability of storing information on the server is the same as the storage thereof on a conventional workstation.
3. The antivirus will say the following: it is better to put it on all the machines. Only on the server, it will solve nothing, even if this server would be the gateway to the Internet. I'm in the office on filopovic do antivirus no, because he stands on all machines in the network, and access server only have those who are in the domain. That is the file it checks the client machine while reading.

Thank you all for the tips!

I decided to start with the fact that I lift domain. Tell, pozh-hundred, too, from experience, difficulties primarily faced? There are no pitfalls? As the whole operation can take time? The fact that the hotel is a specific place where it's always hard at work, even on weekends and at night in the place the receptionist on duty. Will there be difficulties when raising the domain to work with 1C? (well, for example access to databases on the server will suddenly fall off or something :)
