my testing environment is a small group consisting of 6 WindowsXP workstations and 2 redundant document gauntlet servers (non-Windows).
The CESM manual suggests that Windows Server 2003 is required to run a centralized solution. Are there any possibilities of installing the server onto a plain XP workstation? I've tried doing so but after the successful installation the database could not be connected with. A strange message appears. (I will post screenshot later, currently I'm out of office)
Workstations run .net 2.0 framework which has been upgraded from 1.1.
If I find some more time I will try with a clean installation of the .net framework.
But the overall question is: should CESM's databases be able to run on plain workstations by design?
If so, what are the requirements?
