Small business, VM running W2K Server also acting as DC, I have one other DC replicating, planning to upgrading to 2003 enterprise. Boss steps in "go to cloud", "Network attached Storage" etc... Does Azure allow me to install 2003 from my local, or is cloud pre-determined from a pull down menu, 20012 R2, 2016, CentOS etc. or is my thinking wrong.
I'm arguing for simple upgrade path to 2003, then to 2008 here at the office, any thoughts or amunition to defend my plan?
