Exchange 2003 SP2 looks like it is using ESM from Exchange 2000

I have inherited a client running Exchange 2003 SP2 on Windows 2003 (server 1) and Exchange 2003 SP2 on Windows 2000 (server 2).  When I open up ESM, it looks like the version from Exchange 2000.  I am pretty certain that Exchange 2003 was upgraded from Exchange 2000.  How can I get the Exchange 2003 ESM to run?

    >>When I open up ESM..
    Open EMS on client side (desktop) ? If true, have you also upgraded EMS 2003 on client side

    Can you clarify what you mean by client side (desktop)?  I'm referring to the Exchange System Manager.

    Because we are able to install ESM (console) on desktop for Exchange remote control...

    One more, have you also upgraded ESM during Exchange migration ?

    After I reinstalled the ESM components from the Exchange 2003 disk, I had to right click on the Exchange server organization and then left click on Properties.  Under Administrative Views, I unchecked the boxes for Display Routing Groups and Display Administrative Groups.  It now looks like the Exchange 2003 ESM that I am accustomed to.
