I have a Windows 2000 SBS Server.  But when I go to My computer properties or when I go run MSINFO32, it doesn't say it is Windows 2000 SBS Server.  It just displays as a normal server.  From reliable sources, I found that Windows 2000 SBS will not show as SBS when we go to MY Computer -->Properties...
Is there a place/command which will tell us this is Windows 2000 SBS Server Edition?

I had a similar problem a couple of months ago. I think the problem is this. Installing SBS 2000 from the cd's will give you a basic windows server 2000 installation. In order to finish the installation, i suggest you use the DVDs to complete. Its not SBS 2000 until you have the sbs administration in place.

Good luck. I hope this helps.
