Most would be thinking about the clients and passwords on the clients.
I know someone that tried to do this without AD and the business folded under the strain of workers that could not get to the server. Their business depended on the server being up and access during the call.
Why anyone would avoid AD for this is amazing given the downsides. I can only guess some IT staffer is new.
Not sure this is the right forum, if not please direct me to the proper forum. with that said: Running Server 2008. not using active directory, using simple Authentication only.
We need to use complex passwords which we are, but need to have them expire every 90 days, is there a way to do that if we are not using AD? Everything I have googled deals with AD.
