We have a 2008 x64 std server we are contemplating migrating to r2, and though I suspect it's not recommended, I wondered if anyone had ever done an inplace upgrade from 2008 to 2008 r2 over an rdp connection?
Also is there anything I need to know about before I upgrade from 2008 to r2? Any caveats or gotcha's?
It's a smallish server, 10 users, runs IIS, and our Email via Groupwise and Edirectory, and there are 2-3 virtual machines loaded in VMWare Server 2.01.
It's a ML350 G5 Server I would imagine it would be sensible to run the latest PSP and Firmware Maintenance CD on it. Is there any way to ensure that after the upgrade the firewall for all interfaces is off by default?
