    Hi there!

    I want to upgrade my SBS 2000 server to Windows 2003 standard server.
    I got the error message when i try to run setup: "Windows Setup does not support upgrading from Microsoft Small Business Server 2000 to Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition."

    Is there any reason to upgrade this product without reinstall all application?(Exchange 2000, Microsoft Project 2002, SQL200)

    Thanks.

    Hi Ede,

    Thank you for posting!

    From the page Windows Server 2003 Supported Upgrade Paths
    (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/evaluation/whyupgrade/supportedp
    aths.mspx)

    From the table, we can find that SBS 2000 can only be upgraded to SBS 2003.

    Have a nice day!

    Thanks & Regards,
