An anonymous reader writes "My company was contacted by a school who currently has a 99.9% Mac environment (some OS X and some old OS 9 stuff). The school had already purchased a piece of software that would only run on a windows server. This software in this particular environment could easily have run on a high end work station or a low end server with out a problem, but the sales people sold them a much bigger server than was necessary on the assumption that it they could easily use this as a file server in a predominately Apple environment (they didn't bother checking with an engineer first). The school does need a new file server, but I am of the opinion that they would have been better served to get something smaller for the Windows app to run on, and hire a Mac shop to come in and set up a Mac file server for them. It's already been sold, and now I'm stuck implementing this solution that, IMO, doesn't serve the client well. Part of me wants to say this is not a good fit for you, but the server is already bought and paid for so there isn't much that can be done about it. Has anyone run into a situation like this before? What did you do?"
