+ Perfect solution for SMEs without the complexity of both product and licensing) of earlier versions of WIndows server. Wizards allow most of the basic config without delving into the MS admin tools, these are still there for advanced config. Client was migrated from a Linux server as this provided a cost effective solution with the features they required without having to pay for others they don't. Support is simplified as any WIndows admin can manage the system because it is "standard"
- Microsoft makes some decisions that can't easily be changed. E.g. there is no (easy) way to use self generated certificates for remote access via the RDC gateway. I appreciate the security concerns but my client was not willing to pay for an SSL certificate just in case key staff members are unable to make it into the office - since they are usually office based.
