Just looking for some advice/clarification.
I install and maintain remote security camera and hence have just working knowledge of the Windows server 2008.
I recently visited an organisation that has configured all their users in the office to login through remote desktop into Windows 2008R2 Server. I didn't find the usual domain logon or Active Directory on their server. I asked the IT guy and he told me this configuration is easiest and has low problems. Also when a computer fails all the user has to do is to move to next working computer.
My question :
a) Is this a efficient configuration ?
What does he lose by not using Active Directory ?
