I've got a copy of Windows Server 2003 and a bunch of old computers. I am also taking some courses in Server 2K3 administration, but I'm not really getting a feel for what I can *do* with 2K3 besides setting up Active Directory, DNS and DHCP. I can get a client to join a domain, but as it stands it's pointless since the domain provides no additional functionality to the client-- just slows down logging in.
What are some ways in which 2K3 is deployed in an enterprise environment? I'd appreciate some example setups, projects or scenarios to try to emulate so I can get a feel for what I might expect if I did this for a living.
