So do you tend to use a dedicated NIC in the server and connect to the SAN directly to it via a crossover lead? I'm not familiar with how iSCSI works

unfortunately no, 2012 is not an option as we have already bought the licences for 2008R2.

Thats just it, I dont want to necessarily use VHD's I would have preferred to provision some of the server's drives as a pass through disk but the company that is setting up our server have already installed the host operating system.

comment Creating an office network and monitoring all activity without a proxy
I thought considering @robert mentioned using a server as a router, TMG would be the natural choice for the application layer to configure access, provide monitoring and reporting?

comment What to enter in profile Path & logon while creating new user
@autrevo My experience with roaming profiles has been that it can be quite fiddly to get set up correctly. Incorrect setup can result in poor network performance and slow login / logoff times. You only need roaming profiles when you have hot desk swapping really. In a standard work environment where one person uses one machine its not worth implementing. It might be more useful to give people a mapped network drive and tell them to use that. but MDMarra is right in that you should set this up in Group Policies rather than using Profile Path.

@HopelessN00b I was referring to the potential for more authentication / network chatter between the non-AD machines and the AD machines. I was told by an IT consultant that the scenario of having non-member computers and member computers authenticating against each other is more expensive than if all machines are on the same domain... I'm not sure if this is right or not? Nevertheless I'm of the opinion all machines (Mac's included) should be on the same domain.
