This is my first time to setup a office network and I'm having some problems, I hope this is the correct place to post this.
Here is my situation, we have two servers one is dedicated to our souce files and local user files which has our Active Directory, IIS, DNS running Windows Server 2008. This server's sole purpose is just to test our webstie on and to store local user files.
The second server is running Windows Server 2008 on it and has SQL Server 2008 and its sole purpose is to just run our test database.
So here are my questions when it comes to setting up SQL Server and Source Safe, I have not been able to find anythnig about setting up source safe. Does anyone have any insight that they could send my direction. Also when it comes to setting up SQL Server
which is on a seperate server, I have created the DB under the administrator of that Server but when I want to create new uesrs for that DB how can I just use the users that are on our domain? I hope I'm writing out the correct questions, thanks for any and
all the help you can provide.

Here is an article from MSDN that might provide some insight: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/b8e72409(VS.80).aspx
It outlines the various steps necessary to setup VSS.
Hope this provides some insight!

Thanks for the quick response, I have downloaded and installed VSS on the server and the tools on my local pc, but when I setup the database it doesnt show the files that are connected to it,.

What do you mean files that are connected to it.. Do you see an empty root with the dollar symbol ($). Then there you right click and create a project and map that project to a folder on your local machine. From there you start adding files. Try to create
a project and play around with the menu items and see what you can or can not do
And regarding the SQL server. Go to the Security Tab under the SQL Server Server root and Click users and add new user, in that new user dialog and you can Select Windows Authentication and put the domain user name like domain\username

>doesnt show the files that are connected to it,.
Try these steps:
- Create a project in the VSS database by right-clicking the $ sign and choose the 'Create project' menu option
- Then select the just added project by clicking its folder icon
- Then add one or more files to the project by pressing Ctrl+A or choosing from the Files -> Add files menu option
The files you're adding should appear instantly on the right side of the window.
