Hey all,

I'm still (sigh) trying to upgrade a 2000 server to 2003, but Now I'm getting an error reguarding Remote Storage, and how I can't upgrade from 2000 to 2003 with remote storage (only 2003 enterprise supports it).  

I've gone to Add/remove programs : Windows components to disable it and the only things showing up are "configure message queing" and "Configure remote installation services"  no "Remote Storage" to be found.  Is there some other place to find and disable this so that I may continue the upgrade?  Thanks for the help!

When is it showing you configure message queueing and RIS, after you click OK?

In Add/Remove Windows Componets uncheck remote storage and click ok.  If you have message queueing, RIS, or Terminal Services installed it will ask you to "configure" it because it runs down the list and anything that requires configuration upon the initial install will show the config wizard again for that service.  Make sure you pick the correct options because you are essencially re-configuring it.

In Add/remove windows components I don't have an Remote Storage box to uncheck, hence the problem.  

the only ones that showed up are the two from above.

hmmm, sounds like there is some issue that's preventing the whole list from appearing.

To Remove Remote Storage:

OK, Create the text file "C:\remove.txt"

In this file put the following 2 lines and save the file:
[Components]
RSTORAGE = off

Click Start, Run and type
sysocmgr /i:C:\WINNT\ServicePackFiles\i386\sysoc.inf /u:C:\remove.txt


The server will restart itself after it's done.
