    Dell servers R2 install disc

    I have a Dell Reinstallation cd kit. It has server 2003 x64 OS and a second disc with R2 on it.

    Is the disc pure R2? If so can i use this disc to install R2 on another domain in a different school. They have paid for the R2 disc but have not received the discs yet and i wondered if i can use the Dell disc instead of waiting.

    The other domain server in the other school is x32

    Re: Dell servers R" install disc

    The R2 media sets are just:
    Disk 1 Server 2003 SP1 Integrated
    Disk 2 R2 updates.

    My Dell disk although I didnt use it is a proper holgramed MS disk. I however used a Select copy as supplied by our LEA.

    Oh just noticed the x64 bit and no it wont work with the 32 it will say its the wrong version.

    Re: Dell servers R2 install disc

    So you are saying that the R2 discs can be x32 and x64?

    So there is not just one R2 disc?

    That is correct I put the wrong disk in and it said something like "The disk has verfied although it is for a different version".

    sSo even though you put a x64 version in to a x32 OS it still let you install it?

    No 32 for 32 64 for 64.

    What about updating hte schema, I have a AD which is all x32 2003 servers. I am about to put a x64 server in the mix.

    Suggestions?

    @Kyle: AFAIK the schema update is common. MS has obviously just done some jiggery pokery to the new apps to make them 64-bit compatible.

    Yes the schema is fine. Not even MS would try and pull that kind of trickery meaning you would have to update your servers and hardware to x64.
