Alright some of you here know I am a Firefighter and I am also our IT director. Well my Chief made me the IT guy, I told him what I was going to do, I changed over from P2P to Windows Server 2003. Now he got mad at someone for locking THEIR computer in THEIR office (not his the Chief's office) and now he wants NO PASSWORDS on any computer. Not to mention I brought my OWN server from my house and spent my money buying the parts, software, and monitor for it.


I need help with gathering all the Pro's and Con's of having a Server Based vs P2P Network.......


Please help me from not wanting to quit my job.

What's to say? The thing that springs to mind is: No good deed goes unpunished.

I would suggest you not spend the time on comparing ptp vs client server though you can google just the phrase and get plenty of hits.

Spend the time educating the Chief as to security benefits and accountabiltiy of using secure accounts and passwords.

I would also suggest a policy that when a user is leaving they logout and not lock the pc. This would allow for the chief to then logon.

If you make the chief a Doman administrator he can unlock the PC. But do you really want that headache.
