We have this issue we need to deal with, at least, short-term, and right away, by setting up file replication between two server shares, on servers in different location. We have reasons that we cannot yet upgrade to 2008 R2 server, which is more what we've been used to in recent years.
The 2 servers are currently Windows 2003 SP2. (Not 2003 R2). One of them is basically a file server. The other has AD and Exchange 2003.
As we are under pressure about this, and want to make sure we do this right... and our 2003 stuff is a little rusty in this area, can anyone refresh my understanding of a Windows 2003 SP2 to Windows 2003 R2 upgrade? I seem to remember that it can be done in-place. Anyone know of some good documentation that makes it easy, so this can go quickly and confidently, without upsetting what is installed on the servers now.
This is something to bridge a gap for us, but the content/services on the servers are still important for the time being.
Thanks in advance!
