Do I need the Windows NT server product
Windows NT is available in two flavours:
A Eloquence server may be running on a system with Windows NT
Workstation. The Windows NT server software is not required.
However Windows NT imposes a license limitation on concurrent access
to systems on which Windows NT Workstation is installed:
A maximum of ten systems can simultaneously access a Windows NT
Workstation system by means of file system mounts or UNC names.
- Windows NT Workstation
- Windows NT Server
Additionally it may make sense to use the Windows NT domain
concept to manage some NT workstations and users consistentially.
This requires a Windows NT Server to be present in your network
which is configured as domain controller.
The situation with Windows 2000 is different. As of Windows 2000
Service Pack 2, Windows 2000 Professional is limited to 10
concurrent connections. For example, if you establish more than 10
connections to the eloqdb6 database server it will stop accepting any
more connections even if you close all previous connections.
The eloqdb6 must be restarted to recover from this situation.
Thus, Windows 2000 Professional (as of Service Pack 2) is not suited to
operate the Eloquence servers, therefore the Windows 2000 server
software is required.
