    Hi everybody,

    I added 4GB ram to my W2K3 STd server so now it has a total of 8GB ram.

    I know I need W2K3 ent. edition in order to see all the new ram.

    My server is SAN attached (to an IBM DS4300 with Fiber Channel) and is an
    SQL2000 Enterprise Edition application server too.

    Does anyone know about problem doing an in-place upgrade from W2k3STD to
    W2K3 ENT in this situation ?

    Any advice will be apprecieted.
    Thanks in advance

    Everything that I've been told is that you can't do it. It's a a complete
    rebuild upgrade.

    Hi Patrick and thanks for your replay,

    I'm sorry but I found this article in the Microsoft knowledge base:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/810613/en-us;

    again, I found this in the readme.htm of the W2003 Enterprise installation cd:

    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    1.1 Operating Systems from Which You Can Upgrade
    --------------------------------------------------
    If you upgrade, Setup automatically installs Windows
    Server 2003, Enterprise Edition, into the same folder as the currently
    installed operating system. You can upgrade to Windows
    Server 2003, Enterprise Edition, from the following versions of
    Windows:

    * Windows NT Server 4.0 with Service Pack 5 or later

    * Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition, with Service
    Pack 5 or later

    * Windows NT Server 4.0, Enterprise Edition, with Service Pack 5 or
    later

    * Windows 2000 Server

    * Windows 2000 Advanced Server

    * Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition

    What do you think about this ?

    Thanks again.
