Submission + - Ask Slashdot: tips on migration from Active Directory 2003 to 2008

Espectr0 writes: We are an insurance company with about 600 client machines dispersed in 20 cities in our country. Our server infrastructure is mostly centralized on one city, with servers running Windows 2003 Server and Windows 2008 Server. We just want to migrate Active Directory from 2003 to 2008. Not everyone of our clients are using DHCP, which we want to force with group policy with this migration. Our clients are 80% windows xp pro sp3, with the rest being windows 7 pro. So far we have found this link and this one. Any good tips?

Submission + - High tech for insurance claims office?

Espectr0 writes: We are moving our current main insurance automobile claims office to a new location, and the board said to not spare any costs in tech. The office will be big enough to handle lots of customers with their insurance automobile claims and also hold the complete branch of automobile of the company. We will acquire the qmatic system to handle customer support, all in one PC's for the front and have a modern conference room. What kind of technology are slashdot users familiar with in such type of environment? What would you recommend?
