I've got a small network (1 NT4 PDC server running Exchange 5.5 and Proxy with 35 users and 2 network printers) with minimal future growth expected. Is it worth the effort to move to Active Directory during an upgrade to Win2000 on this size network?
Here is the problem. Exchange needs a domain. If you upgrade your PDC to Windows 2000 it will create an Active Directory. Generally, for the size of network you have, the administration of Active Directory won't be any more difficult than the maintaining of Windows NT 4.0 Domain. In fact, it may actually make a few things work a little better.
