I have seldom recommended the integrated Windows server, particularly for centralized data centers. One application strikes me as appropriate however: If a company has a requirement for multiple remote sites with both iSeries and Windows applications and does not have technical staff at those remote sites. * You could bring down the Windows server, transmit an updated system drive via SNADS or FTP to the remote iSeries, and then bring up the Windows server. (Oversimplified but doable). * You could reboot the server remotely. * You could take advantage of the integrated backup capability and have one less point-of-failure at the remote site. This strikes me as a very appropriate use of the technology. It would require a fair amount of planning, but would increase uptime on the Windows side and decrease support costs. Andy Nolen-Parkhouse
