I'm switching servers from a Win 2003 SBS machine to a Win 2003 machine.  What I'm trying to find out is whether Win 2003 has either a version of, or an equivalent to the Small Business Server Manager interface/snapin that's on SBS.  I find it extremely user friendly, and I can't tell whether there is some version on Server 2003, or whether I'm going to have to do all of that configuration much more manually.

Thanks.

Why are you switching away from SBS?  AS suggested, SBS has MANY wizards that are designed for the novice "office computer guy" to handle everyday tasks.  Server standard is not designed that way.

NOW you tell me.  :o

We've got an outside consultant upgrading our servers, and that's what he recommended.  And as a novice IT Manager, I'm taking his word for it that it's a step up, and the way to go.

Thanks for all the advice.  I'm going to check with the consultant, and verify whether there's a compelling reason to be switching away from SBS.

Thanks to everyone.
