Can CIS be installed on a Win 2003 file server? We currently have nothing running on our file server and all the commercial package really require 5 licenses minimum or are just ridiculously expense for a company our size.
PS - I did notice that Windows 2003 Server was not on the recommended OS list.
I have seen a couple reports suggesting it could run on 2003 server. But that is not guaranteed.
