"Installation ******* *** ***** *******" - Unless the situation with VMS has changed radically in the last couple of years since I tested them, I've found that VMS systems designed to cater to small-scale users, while typically simple to set up and manage, also lack several "Enterprise-level" capabilities. I suppose the same can be said of VMS systems designed for Enterprise-level  systems. They often have so much flexibility built in that what can be programmed with just a couple of steps on smaller systems require many more steps to program. There are sacrifices made when going in either direction.
