I have 2 servers in 2 seperate locations that I was going to set up DFS Replication between them.  One server, the newer that I recently setup, has DFS installed w/management and replication.  This server shows in it's system info listing:
Server 2003 Standard Edition
5.2.3790 Service Pack 1 Build 3790
R2
I thought I loaded R2 on this server, this info makes it look like it's not
The second server, is an older server that was updated to 2003 standard before I started working here.
This server shows in it's system info listing:
Server 2003 Standard Edition
5.2.3790 Service Pack 1 Build 3790
 Not Available
This server does not show the DFS intalled in Add and Remove programs under system like the other server.  But when I go to Administrative tools DFS is there.
Is the second server SP1 or SP2 and the version of DFS is not the same as the 1st server?
How do I get the same DFS loaded on the second server, upgrade to R2?
