hoping someone here can help.  I am neck deep in a server migration and it turns out I am in dire need of exchange server standard 2003 media.  Microsoft in their infinite wisdom no longer makes this available for download in the volume licensing service center.  I have a license so I am not asking for a license key,  I just need the media.  if anybody has it available or can make available temporarily for download it would save me!  thank you in advance.  Either iso file below would help me:

Just a quick note here, SBS Disc 2 is the Exchange piece. Disc 1 is Windows Server 2003.

Which one are you uninstalling? Because I believe the uninstall is very specific on whether it wants SBS Disc 2, or, Exchange Standard 2003. I don't think it will let you interchange them if memory serves.

thanks.  yes I realize SBS disc 2 is the exchange piece.  but in my situation I either need an SBS 2003 R2 disc 1 iso or Exchange Server 2003 Standard.  Exchange 2003 Standard iso is preferable at this point.

Not sure why you need that disk. It doesn't contain the Exchange installation media. It does contain Exchange 2003 SP2, but you cannot install from that.
If you have the standard SBS media then use disk two, then download SP2 from Microsoft's download site.

Happy to help.  If only they (MS) had configured it so that you wouldn't need the installation media to uninstall a product!
