This server will host the domain, active directory services, security policies, clinic software and be a central point for network storage and backup. All of the client computers will be replaced with new ones running Windows 7. These computers will be joined to the domain enforcing password requirements, security policies and ensuring that all computers are backed up and protected from viruses.
