  • Windows Deployment vs RIS 2003 R2

    EDIT: Correction .. This applies to 2003 server AND 2003 R2

    Just as it's not been mentioned that I can see yet.

    I recently installed 2003 R2 on a new ML150 server. The server itself is to be used mainly as a file server but with Remote installation services also just for the IT PC's (only 6 of them)

    So got 2003 installed installed SP2 and patched it. Great no problem until I wanted to install RIS...!

    What it now boils down to is this.

    If you install SP2 and then install RIS you get Windows Deployment Services running in Native Mode!
    If you install RIS and then install SP2 you get Windows Deployment Services running in Native Mode!
    On the two above old RIS images dont work

    If you want to keep or transfer images and still want the old familiar RIS

    Install RIS on a SP1 machine then you must add an image to RIS before you install SP2 this way Windows Deployment Services will run in Mixed Mode.

    Hope this proves useful
