    Win2k3 Enterprise was unintentionally installed on a server that was supposed
    to have Standard. The copy has not been activated on that computer and I
    want to change it to Standard. Is this possible without wiping the computer
    out?

    Thanks

  2. Hello,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    We can not upgrade Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition to Standard
    Edition. Please refer to the following document.

    810613 Supported Paths for Upgrading to Windows Server 2003 or to Windows
    Small
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=810613

    You can find the information below.

    Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition
    -- Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition

    You can try to backup the important data or export user accounts before
    you perform re-installation.

    Have a nice day!
