I am planning a clean install from W2k server to W2003k next week.
I have one small question over this. I will be backing up the System State of the W2k server and certain other files. If I Keep all the settings the same in W2003k, I am taking it as read that the W2k back up tape will work in the new environment. Am I correct in my assumption?
The reason for the clean install, is that the current C: drive has gotten too small.
Isn't beta anymore - it is full release candidate now. Isn't it ? I hope so - we just went live with it this evening and it worked a treat.... it is meant to perform better, not noticably so far, but then our kit is hardly overloaded.
"I'm working on the R2 beta, the core of which is based on the SP1 platform"
Windows Server 2003 R2 is the latest version of Windows Server 2003. It contains both Service Pack (SP1) and a large number of features and components that were not contained in the previous version. Some of these components were, in the past, only available as separate technologies, and some are completely new.
I hope that finally clears up any confusion? I suppose my error was in calling R2 a 'service pack'.
Thanks for your replies everyone, much appreciated.
I may have to work on this over the weekend as the server keeps shutting it's self down, with an error of "The previous shutdown at ***** was unexpected" from the Event Log.
I have checked over the server for viruses and I have also conducted a full diagnostic, and it came out with a clean bill of health. So all I can assume is it is due to the C: drive being far too small.
