    Server 2003

    Hi all,

    I have a client who is running 2003 SBS, with Exchange 2003.

    I'm trying to talk him into upgrading to 2008 R2 as he's running Windows 7 machines now anyway and he is using 2003 as his network firewall which isnt the best really considering the type of company it is.

    What I want to know is, When did support finish for the entire 2003 range ? Including Exchange ?

    What would happen if his server was to be rebuilt now on 2003... would it still activate ?


    TIA.

    It hasn't ended. April 2014. If you stick 2003R2 on, that will gain another 12 months, at least for the OS (not that there's much point, better to move further forward). 2003 will activate still.

    Support runs out in April 2014 for Server 2003. If you explain to him that after this, there will be no updates etc then he should consider the move to 2008 R2 more...
