  • Upgrade to SBS R2 Cannot Complete as SP2 is installed

    Hi Guys,

    Ive got an SBS 2003 Standard Edition Server with Service Pack 2 Installed. Now we are going to be using SQL i have purchase the Upgrade from SBS 2003 to SBS 2003 R2 and Standard edition to Premium Edition.

    I have come to the task of installing the R2 Technologies upgrade and have come to a problem.

    When i run the setup and it comes to Setup Requirements Screen i get the Error on the Requirement "You can install the R2 Technologies only on a computer that is running Windows SBS 2003 with Service Pack 1" and you can continue past this.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks in advanced!

    Can you uninstall SP2, install R2, reinstall SP2 then update with MU?
    TIA

      I had thought of this but when going to uninstall SP2, you get the microsoft warning that hte following programs may not work and there is a long list including majority of updates, internet explorer, .net 2.0, GFI Mail Essentials and more critical apps.

        FYI Guys,

        I spoke to micrsoft and i was wrong (and the post above was right ), you need to uninstall SP2 and make sure all parts of SP1 for SBS (SBS SP1 Files/Instructions) are installed.

        Un-installing SP2 does not harm any other programs, and Microsoft did assure me this.

        Thanks for the replies

          I think the list is everything installed after the program you are removing, rather than indicating these are programs that will cause problems
