Windows 2000 Cluster to 2003 Migration

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.

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
