Hi All,

Something that could be quite trivial. Ive installed Windows 2003 Standard R2 and am unable to find the File Resource Manager snap in. Everything ive read says "Add/Remove Windows Components and select File Resource Manager under the Management and Monitoring Tools category" but when i go there it doesnt exist. Is this only a feature of Enterprise edition or am i missing something?

    If you've installed R2 then it should be there. It is on the R2 Std Edition system that I just looked at.

    Ok i used a CD that had R2 on it but maybe i need to confirm that its actually R2 installed. Any idea how i could could confirm that the server is running R2? I havent seen anything on the server that actually says "R2".

    Open a command prompt and run WINVER. If you're running R2, the dialog box will show "Version 5.2 R2" and a build number.

    An R2 install is done from 2 CD's. The first installs Windows Server 2003 SP1, and the second installs the R2 components.

    Youre right, that was an oversight on my part. Thanks for clearing that up.
