Upgrading SBS 2008 to Server 2008 Standard
Posted on 2010-11-19
I am pretty sure I know the answer to this, but I figured I would ask anyways.
Is it possible on the same server, to upgrade from SBS 2008 to Server 2008 Standard. I have a client that purchased a Server with SBS 2008 and now due to the Restrictions on SBS we have decided to have Server 2008 installed instead. It's not a big deal if I have to blow out the SBS installation and start all over, but if I can upgrade easily enough, then so be it. The major reasons is due to the Terminal Services in Application mode restrictions thats the biggiest reason.
** Please don't recommend that I just purchase SBS Ultimate, because that would truely require the purchase of second Physical Server, which is not what the customer wants at this point.
