  • SBS2003 to SBS2003 R2 Upgrade??

    Anyone have any idea yet how a SBS2003 upgrade to SBS2003 R2 will work? I have the Server 2003 R2 media but not the SBS specific R2 media. Thoughts on upgrading anyone...

    I'm not sure about SBS but from what i've read you only need to install the 2nd disk to upgrade from Server 2k3 to Server 2k3 R2.

    Please note that i have NOT tried this as of yet so please try it in a test enviornment first.

      You get about 7 CDs; 6 of which are the same as SBS2K3 SP1; the 7th is the R2 technologies disk which adds SQL 2005WE , Exchange SP2 and the green check WSUS console. You can also add the new file and print manager along with directory based disk quotas if you select it from "additional Windows components".
      So it works like the W2K3 2nd CD in that respect.
