Small Business Server 2003 to Server 2008
Posted on 2011-10-05
We currently run a small enviroment with 2 Windows 2003 servers one of them being small business server 2003. At this time we currently do not use Exchange, sharepoint, IAS. We only use the servers for applications, file sharing, printers, and routing and remote access.
Since the SBS 2003 server is rather outdated we need to start thinking about an upgrade. I looked at SBS 2011 but it is siginifcantly more expensive than windows server 2008. Since we don't need exchange and we don't need sharepoint would upgrading simply to Windows server 2008 Standard be sufficient? Am I going to run in to any problems when trying to upgrade our small business server 2003 domain to a non small business server 2008 domain?
Thank you in advance for any help.
