SBS2003 Installation will it be supported with downloads for another year / any issues anyone can report.
Posted on 2013-01-15
Due to a nightmare beyond my control (thanks HP) a server was shipped with SBS2003 missing the SBS2008 software back in 2009. The server is now running out of drive space so we're removing the smaller drives and upgrading to larger, because of the OS fiasco makes sense to install the new drives and build up the server again for another year which at that time makes ROI 5 years (one goal accomplished) and we'll then review the technology available. As well probably better with SBS2011 no longer being supported...seems like the industry is going through a change between in-house and cloud so review again in mid 2014.
Question, is there anything to worry about with SBS2003 installations 9 years after the OS has been out? I have clients still running SBS2003 and server 2003 and haven't had any problems I don't expect this to be any different however because the option to "not" go to SBS2008 for the next year has been decided for us and we're trying to fully understand if there are any SBS2003 problems that may come about due to the age of the OS.
