the 2K budget is just for the RAID solution. there's about 20-25 clients on the newtwork and yes I'm using Open Directory but not users home directories. All files are shared in different Shared point based on the department.
I already have another mac mini server running a filemaker server.
The new mini should replace an xserve and a power mac server that acts as an OP replica.
