Windows Server 2003 Features:
- Advanced networking features such as Internet Authentication Service (IAS), the Network Bridge feature, and Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).
- Four-way symmetric multiprocessing (SMP).
- Four gigabytes (GB) of RAM.
- License Qty - 1 server, 5 clients
- XML Web services. IIS 6.0 security settings are enforced during setup by default to ensure that only required services are running. This change from earlier versions significantly reduces initial security risks. Using the IIS Security Lockdown wizard, server functionality is enabled or disabled based on the administrator's requirements.
- Directory services. Active Directory security settings for users and network resources span from the core to the edge of the network, helping you make a secure end-to-end network a reality.
- Update management. The Auto Update feature provides the ability to
systematically download critical operating system updates, such as security fixes and security patches. Administrators select when to install these critical operating system updates.
- Internet firewall. Connecting to the Internet is more secure with the
built-in Internet Connection Firewall. The integration of an Internet Firewall
in the operating system also reduces capital costs necessary to connect to the Internet.
- Remote access. Dial-up users can be quarantined via administrator policy. They can be prevented from accessing the network until their system is verified to have administrator-specified software, such as virus detection updates.
- Server hardware support. Driver verifiers check new device drivers to help keep the server up and running.
- Application verification. Applications running on Windows Server 2003 can be tested and verified using the Application Verifier tool, which detects subtle discrepancies, such as software heap corruptions and compatibility issues.
- File services. Windows Server 2003 performance has increased considerably since Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 and Windows 2000 Server.
- Assisted support. Microsoft incident submission and management allows users to submit electronic support incidents to Microsoft, collaborate with support engineers, and manage submitted incidents from Windows Server 2003.
- Server event tracking. Administrators can create accurate reports of uptime using the new server shutdown tracker, which records Windows events for server shutdowns in a log file.
