Server 2003 EE and Server 2003 EE R2 - which one is which

Two Server 2003 Enterprise Edition are installed. One is the "old" version and one is the R2 .. Both Volume License ..

Now I try to find a way to check which one is which .. Sorry for the silly question, but I just installed those two machine for testing and try to compare them.
The only significant thing I was able to spot was the post-setup procedure where all incoming connections are blocked until you close that particiular window.

But how can you check later which one is which ?

Systeminfo shows on both

OS Name      Microsoft(R) Windows(R) Server 2003, Enterprise Edition
Version      5.2.3790 Service Pack 1 Build 3790


Again, not important, just wondering ...

Hi Cassavatech,


Run the batch file found on the page below to determine if it is R2...

@rhandels  : shows me on both the same  :(

@jss1199  : As far as my testing now goes : This script seems to determine which version of R2 you got, not IF you got R2 :(

You just want to know which server has R2 installed and which one doesn't?

Hit ctrl-alt-del (or if you RDPed in, choose start, windows security).  It will says 2003 R2 if it's R2.

That's not R2...trust me, I have them running here and they DO show R2.

Sounds like you installed CD 1 only.  You have to install CD 2 of R2 in order to bring it up to R2 Level, otherwise it is simply 2003 sp1.

And the copyright on R2 should extend to 2005....(copyright in the above image is 2003

Ok, now I installed again the MSDN version from the DVD we got ... I thought first since I installed from the DVD it installed everything anyway. So you are right, I need to install manually from the 2nd CD .. only one problem, our volume license key does not work for the 2nd CD and I cannot find any special R2 key in our agreement, but I guess thats a different issue which can only be sorted by calling M$ ....
