Hi

I am just getting ready to move my network to 2003.  I just had some quick questions.  Do I need to remember the services that are running?

Reason I ask is, cause I know 2003 shuts off services that are not being used.  What I need to know is will it shut off services that are running, will I have to remember and re-enable them.
As well as when I put SP1 on will that shut off any services that need to be re-enable?
Thanks in advance.

depend on what your servers are  doing.

to put it simply I would say "no"

it never hurts to be through, but it should not be neccesary.

and you say move to 2003 is that an upgrade or fest domain install, upgrade servers from ?

what apps are you running on these servers and what else are they doing?

I just wanted to make sure that services that were already on didn't get turned off,  then I had to go and start them back.  Thanks
