Presumably you didn't do a forum search?
Has anyone had any experience of upgrading there current windows 2003 sp1servers to server 2003 r2 i generally would never do an inplace upgrade but i want to take advantage of some of the features without having to entirely rebuild all my servers.
I understand that i only need disk 2 but any other info on the preperation etc would be useful.
i came across this http://www.windowsitpro.com/Article/...807/48807.html but want your real world experiences so i can consider pit falls etc.
cheers as always in advance
Of course i did but missed them both! thanks for the links .
I don't see how, the first one comes up in the 'similar threads' thing. The other one would too, but it's too old (it comes up as a similar thread in the other thread though).
surely it would be easier to accept that i searched and missed them?
R2 is designed to be an upgrade to 2003, so there's no need to rebuild your server from scratch.
As a general rule I always update my 2003 servers to SP2 first, then starting with domain controllers, update the schema, then apply R2. R2 doesn't need a reboot, but it is recommended you do.
ok will give it a go then thanks everyone for your help.
