Hi,

We have to migrate a Windows 2000 Cluster to Windows 2003 Cluster. Could you indicate me any technical reference or suggestions to do it?

Thanks in advance,
David.

This link is for an MS article that references other articles on doing a rolling upgrade of a 2000 cluster to 2003.

even is posible, is more secure make a new install, but if you realy need -it , try first to migrate in a virtual environment, with vmware or virtual server, and be sure of versions and service pack you need, just the framework version, cause a headache in a win2k3 cluster with SQL2005, .

Another very useful link is:

I'll try it before in a virtual environment. We haven't SQL clustered just there are file shares and print spoolers.

I've tried to do it in a VMWARE environment following the document 'Server Clusters: Rolling Upgrades. Upgrading to Windows Server 2003' however I get an incompatibility error upgrading it with fax service.

I uninstalled it (fax service) via registry (deleting the entry in the registry) , restarted the server and launched the winnt32.exe /tempdrive:C command however I got the same mesagge. Any suggestion?

you remove fax service from both serves?, if you can´t migrate in place the other way is start from zero, backup, format servers, and reisntall
