SBS standard upgrade to premium
Posted on 2008-10-12
We are currently running with SBS2003 standard (NOT R2). We have a seperate server running Win Server 2003 R2 and the MSDE version of SQL. Is there a pathway open to me to upgrade to the premium version of SBS2003 as we are rapidly outgrowing the free version of SQL. Will not having the R2 version cause any problems or extra expense?
I would seriously consider upgrading to SBS2008 premium but im currently training for my MCSA. From what i've read about SBS2008, there isnt an option to upgrade SBS2003(non R2) to SBS2008.
R2 is looking like the pain here and from all accounts it doesnt really do much. WSUS seriously effected the performance of my server.
I'm nearly 100% sure that SBS is limited to 4GB of RAM. Could someone please confirm?
