SBS 2003 R2 - Vista incompatibility?
Posted on 2006-11-30
I went yesterday to the Microsoft (there is money for you, there is money for us) See The Difference Partner Roadshow. Among fun little novelties like "If no recent Service Packs or no Antivirus Then no (local) network", there was one remark about SBS: "Vista can not be installed on a SBS 2003 R2 domain with the wizards. Wait for the next version of SBS to see that problem solved." Has anyone tested Vista on SBS and knows more about it?
Apparently Microsoft favors a fast transition to Vista. At the same time SBS seems to have problems to keep up with the rest of the Microsoft offerings. The buy XP upgrade to Vista offer (Microsoft Technical Advantage or something alike) ends in april 2007, what gives me the impression to be caught between marketing and missing Service Packs.
Did I say that the Roadshow free snacks where excellent.
