How can I identify which version of SBS2000 we're using?

Hi Experts
We are upgrading an old SBS2000 server to a new box which will have SBS2003 installed.

To make sure we spec this correctly I need to know whether or not the old SBS2000 install is a Standard or Premium version.  The computer properties page only states Windows Small Business Server 2000 SP4.  There doesnt appear to be a full version of SQL Server installed (except the services working with Exchange), but there is an ISA 2000 server installed, which kind of steers me towards thinking it is a Premium edition.  We have no media to work from nor COA!

Any ideas how we find out?
Thanks, C

SBS Standard is Standard unless the Premium content is installed. So your best indication would be to check for those products and of course, the installation media. If you know the MS part number of the media, you can check that as well.

The Premium Edition adds Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and Microsoft Internet Security & Acceleration Server 2000.

Hi Power

OK since the first post we have found the media - but it still doesn't help much.  The box is a retail "academic" version that says "Microsoft Small Business Server 2000"; it also includes Service Pack .

On the back it does list as components: MS ISA Server 2000 and MS SQL Server 2000.

So I guess your first post must apply.  We can see the install of the ISA 2000, but I cannot be sure if the SQL Server 2000 is fully installed, as I know Exchange uses some parts of this.  Any ideas how we confirm the SQL is fully installed?  It is not showing in Add/Remove Programs and I cannot see it in the Admin Tasks.

We need to be sure that it is/is not installed to spec the right version of the replacement SBS2003.

Thanks C
