Standalone server vs member server
 
Hello,
A stand-alone server means the server in a workgroup
and member server means server in a domain and not a domain controller.

Can standalone servers also be called member servers or are the standalone
servers is used strictly to say the server in a workgroup and a member
server is used to strictly mention a server in a domain thats not a domain
controller?

MS Press book i am reading is pretty dumb about it. have a look for
yourself:
"All stand-alone servers, member servers, and computers running Windows XP
Professional have built-in local groups."
^^ means here that there are 2 types of things, member servers and
standalone.

"The RIS server can be a domain controller or a stand-alone server that is a
member of a domain containing Active Directory. "

^^ and here the very bright m@krosh@ft guy in the MS Press book says like a
standalone server can be said to a member server as well.

Which one is right geez i am gonna take the exam soon and the book doesnt
tell what i am looking for.

Re: Standalone server vs member server
 
Why are you getting concerned ?

What it says is; machines that are NOT domain controllers have local
accounts. Everything else does.

To get RIS to work you need access to Active Directory, so either a domain
controller or a member server. A standalone hasn't got access to AD because
it's alone in the world.

Good luck with the exam.

Re: Standalone server vs member server
 
The books are wrong...

Servers that are on a network with a domain controller are Member Servers,
full stop.

Servers on a network with no access to a domain controller are standalone.

That's it, there is no other way of putting it.
