Windows 2000 Advanced Server vs. Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition

Hi everyone,

I have a client that wants me to prepare a comparison of Window 2000 Advanced Server (which they are currently using) to Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition.  I know that this is not a supported upgrade path but they are talking about clean installs of the servers.  Does anyone know where I can find documentation that have already compared Windows 2000 Server editions to Windows Server 2003 editions?

TIA,
Susan

That should help.

Basically the servers they plan on installing 2003 standard on will have pretty much any feature that 2000 advanced had, but you'll be limited to 4GB RAM and 4 procs only (2000 advanced supports 8-way boxes).

I want to apologize, I was out of the office at the beginning of the week and didn't get the meesage about closing the question.  If possible, I would like to split the origianl points I offered between both users that responded to my question.

Thank you!

nouses9,

Thanks for coming back, even if it is after the question has been closed.

You will see that the points were already split as you have requested.

Thanks!
