My customer built his own server and I installed SBS2003 on it. I was dubious because he bought cheap hardware and built the server himself to save money.
He has been getting errors on his drives. I've swapped these out and tested them on another box. They seem fine. So i'm thinking now that there's a problem on his motherboard.
So the best suggestion I can make to him now would be to replace all the hardware with good quality gear. The problem is that he would need a fresh copy of SBS. Is there any provision within the licensing for moving SBS onto new hardware when someone decides to upgrade his hardware?
I would prefer to tell my customer to buy a new server from Dell with everything pre-installed, but I know what his reaction will be when I tell him that his current copy of SBS will have to be abandoned.
