I have two windows server 2003 standard 32 bit servers. One is the Domain Controller, the other an application/print server. Is it true I cannot upgrade to windows server 2008 standard with a 32 bit system? What are my best options? The hardware is now 8 years old. Should I buy new servers with an upgraded OS? I need to make the decision soon because of the end of life support coming for server 2003.
I have about 12 users on this system with shared printers/folders/applications. Is it necessary to run a domain controller or would I be better of doing something different?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
