Greetings to all,

How do I tell what version of SBS 2003 I have?

Normally, just by going to My Computer & clicking properties will tell you.
If i do this, it shows Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for Small Business
Server & does not indicate Standard or Premium. Does this mean I have the
Standard Edition?

The reason for my confusion, is that I see some components such as SQL
Server which belong to the premium edition, however I don't see ISA which
also should be installed. It's my understand that upon installation of
either version, it's all or nothing...

Any help appreciated.

Best Regards,
Don

Definately not all or nothing. You can choose to install SQL or ISA or
Exchange during the setup process. If SQL is installed and ISA isn't, I'd
check your CD's. Just putting in the original CD (1), the menu should tell
you.

If your Sharepoint has a search box you have SQL
If you have an ISA management console in the start/all programs section
you have ISA loaded.

Hi Donald

The first 4 CD's are identical on Std and Prem. The 5th CD in Premium is
labeled Premium Technologies. To determine if you have ISA installed lookISA
in All Programs. For SQL Susan's answer is correct if SQL has been installed
to SP but easier is look in Programs for SQL Server Enterprise Manager.
Standard and Premium are identical if CD5 has not been installed.
