Hi i currently have a network management that is really manually and there is no user management at all, i've heard that Microsoft Active Directory allows you to have a better network administration by letting me install and configure equipment remotely by user or groups that would be nice.
Also worried about my Antivirus since its going to expired real soon i don't know if i can get a Low cost alternative to it.
As you can see i am a little bit overwhelm and i know that the network will eventually grow, so if you please can help me with the following:
How would you approach to this issue? Is Active Directory a good option? do i have to use Microsoft Server or can i pick an Open source alternative that works as well? Any comment about the antivirus?
Currently i setup a nice, simple and basic DNS, Proxy, Iptable, DHCP servers...
