I have a Lotus Domino 6 Install CD titled "Lotus Domino 6.0 (Windows 2000, NT4)"

Does anyone know if this can be used to install on a new Domian with Windows 2003 Servers

I'm giving this 250 points only because I find naviagting on IBM's website to be completely pointless and a total waste of time.

Precisely 6.03 and above is the one which is supported for w2k3.

Hemantha is right. Thats the oficial line. "We don't support". But on the pratical ground I do not see why you cannot run it. I do not have a first hand experience with a domino server on 2K3, but i haven't heard any horror stories.

If you already have this infrastructure its not much helpful discussing this, but do you have any compelling reasons to have 2003? I still prefer 2000 advanced server with SP4 and ADS.

Okay a just a quick question.  Is that a patch or a CD that I should be able to get being that I have 6.0 or do I have to buy an upgrade disk for it?
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

To be honest I love W2K and everything about it.  I think they only want to go to 2003 because of the metality of "Well if we're going to upgrade, might as well go all the way"

You can dowload the Incremental Upgrade installers, which provide "patches" from 6.0 to 6.0.1, 6.0.1 to 6.0.2, etc.  Or, you can just buy the more recent  media.  When you buy Domino, you get a year of maintenance included, so you have the license.  I think point releases also don't require a contract -- you have any release, you can use any point release within the same major release.  6.5 is NOT a point release on 6.0, though.

If you apply the 2K3 logic with Domino, you should buy an upgrade to 6.5

Okay, this answers my questions.  Thank you very much.  I'm going to up the point value and split it if thats okay.

Okay, everyone seems okay with spliting the points.  Each will get a third of the points.  Thank you very much.
