Headless Server

Headless Server

Postby a&mauto » Thu Aug 25, 2016 9:40 am

No, this isnt a political post. My son is an IT person for a major corporation. He has skills. He insists that I should have a "Headless Server". He is willing to build one for my shop and make it work. Im sure I will have other questions later. Will a server like this use up one of our licenses? I was planning on having 5 workstations running off of the Headless server.

This isn't a good idea. Some updates and installation need to occur first on the host, or in some cases exclusively on the host. Without any regular visibility to the server, you can end up with needless confusion. However, if he wants to build you a dedicated server, that isn't a bad idea. The host will not take a license as long as the workstation component is not activated on it.
