    Hi all,

    I have come across a new customer that runs a SBS solution on a PC HW
    plattform (Fubar).
    His SW is SBS2003 w WinSp1 SBS Sp1, Exchange w Sp2, SQL 2005 w Sp2, ISA 2004
    Sp3, WSUS 3.0, Server is all fully patched.

    I have suggested that he moves to a server HW.
    Him self whant´s to move away from ISA and implement an appliance FW of

    Q: If I whant to move away from a two Nic to a single Nic solution, Is It
    only to remove the external Nic, keep the Internal Nic and then re-run
    Q: To move away from ISA, do I only need to uninstall thru Add/Remove
    Programs and then re-run CEICW?

    Q: After making this change, Implementing the appliance/FW
    Netgear/Sonicwall, whatever HW thats been purchased open the needed ports
    for redirecting traffic, is there anything else thats needs to be done?

    Q: The server has been updated to WSUS 3.0, I never actually gave this a
    thaught but what happens to the WSUS 2.x files and DB?

    The steps with the move to the new Server HW will be handled seperatly when
    purchased and more questions will come In a seperate thread If needed.

    Get the SBS BPA here:

    Yes, the steps are correct.
    Yes, the steps are correct, but uninstall the ISA client on the workstations
    (if installed), before removing ISA.
    No, other than the standard "turn off DHCP on the external device".
    In an upgrade from WSUS v2 to v3, WSUS v2 is uninstalled, and you optionally
    elect to upgrade the database/content, or uninstall it and start fresh.
