Sounds crazy but guess I am stupid - so I just got my sbs 2003 R2 premium dvd and I just don't get the upgrade instructions..
It says in the release notes (over and over) that you must get to 2003 sp1 before moving forward..
Well, I am already there.. It says the first 5 cd images are to get you to sbs2003 sp1 (so I assume I don't run these).
The only options left are 3 premium cd's which look like SQL workgroup, isa server and wsus.. The premium technology cd's...
Don't I need to upgrade the base os before installing the premiums. (if so how do I do it)
In any case nothing seems happy here..
btw, server and all components are ok for R2.. Pretty straight forward install.. I also have a copy of r2 premium on cd's (can use either one).
sure it's something I just can't see..
Thanks in advance for any help..

It is pretty straghtforward... but the thing is that you need to install any of the premium stuff BEFORE you run the R2 upgrade.

The full "Getting Started Guide" http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=3E3E06F5-BBD3-496A-9A63-2B748FC78A4C&displaylang=en

(Pay special attention to page 18, "Steps to Complete a New Installation"

Also, see "Installing the Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium Technologies"

These would be done BEFORE you finalize with the R2 disk.
