    Have setup SBS2003 (Server) on C:
    and then ran SBS2003(setup) and chose D: drive for all the other stuff.

    All went well, except that upon completion the Nice friendly "Configure your
    SBS" GUI was no where to be seen. Had a good look around on both drives but
    couldnt find anything that might be a lost shortcut.

    Any ideas?

    Note: I am using the Partner Program CDs from Microsoft. Which although
    "Premium" edition, do not include the 5th and 6th CDs, (Office and FP) as
    found in the Demo SBS pack.

    So in summary: Does the Partner SBS2003 install include the "Configure me
    server gubbins" and what if anything is the purpose of the 5th and 6th CDs
    in the demo pack? Should I install a Partner copy of office pro on the SBS?

  2. Hi JD

    Are you referring to the MAPS Action Pack? If so the New subscribers got
    CD1,2,3,4 and Premium Technologies with No Outlook CD. Call MAPS for a
    replacement CD.or use the Outlook CD from any SBS2003 CD set whether SP1 or

    a) It should

    b) NO!!!

    At least, don't put Outlook and Exchange on the same machine (dll name
    conflict) and everyone will tell you not to put user applications on a
    server (I'm surprised Frank didn't).

  5. (I'm surprised Frank didn't). I should have!! Missed that part :-( Thanks
    for catching it. Server should not be WS.

    It doesn't install outlook on the server, it makes a copy of it to push to

  8. just to clarify:

    The SBS setup does what is known as an 'Administrative install' of Outlook.
    An admin install copies the files to the designated location but does not
    install onto the system (hence no Outlook/Exchange conflict).
