    Hello

    I am running SBS 2003 R2 Premium on our server.

    My base install was SBS 2003 Prem, then I installed SP1 when I got it.
    Later I obtained the R2 version through my sa. I realize that R2 starts
    with a base of SP1 so all I need to add was the R2 bits.

    My question is what is on the first 4 R2 disks? Is SP1 integrated into them
    (it is 4 as oppessed to 3 disks for the original) or does it just install
    then tack the sp1 at the end?

    The reason I ask is, if I want to reinstall some component that asks for the
    disks, can I use the R2 disks or do I need to go back to the originals then
    add sp1 if it need it?

    Thanks

    Terry Mc

    SBS 2003 R2 is SBS 2003 SP1 with the addition of some new technologies. The
    first 4 CDs are basically SP1. The 4th CD contains MSDE and Outlook.
    Although I didn't try it, using the new CDs should be ok.

  3. Hi Terry,

    Thanks for posting in our newsgroups and also for Costas's input.

    Here are the answers to your question:

    1. What is on the first 4 R2 disks?

    CD 1: SBS 2003 SP1
    CD 2: Exchange 2003 and support tools
    CD 3: Installation programs for Administration, Monitoring, Fax, GPMC
    components and so on.
    CD 4: MSDE 2000 SP4, IE6 and Outlook 2003 SP1.

    2. Is SP1 integrated into them (it is 4 as oppessed to 3 disks for the
    original) or does it just install then tack the sp1 at the end?

    The SBS 2003 SP1 is integrated in the CD1. In fact these 4 disks are the
    same as the ones in SBS 2003 SP1.

    3.If I want to reinstall some component that asks for the disks, can I use
    the R2 disks or do I need to go back to the originals then add sp1 if it
    need it?

    Yes, you can insert R2 disk when you reinstall some components.

    Hope the information helps.

    If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Have a nice weekend.

    Best regards,

    CD 2: Exchange 2003 and support tools
    CD 3: Installation programs for Administration, Monitoring, Fax, GPMC
    components and so on.
    CD 4: MSDE 2000 SP4, IE6 and Outlook 2003 SP1.

    2. Is SP1 integrated into them (it is 4 as oppessed to 3 disks for the

    The Windows 2003 SP1 is integrated in the CD1. In fact these 4 disks are
    the same as the ones in SBS 2003 SP1.

    3.If I want to reinstall some component that asks for the disks, can I use

    Yes, you can insert R2 disk when you reinstall some components.

    For future postings, I would like to list the following information as a
    guideline when submitting new posts in the future. This information will
    help us to understand the issue and situation more quickly. Thank you!

    1. Has the server/client/product ever worked?

    2. If so, what changed?

    3. What service packs and updates were applied?

    4. What are the steps to reproduce the problem?

    5. Does it happen the same way on any other systems?

    6. Please provide the exact error message with any screenshots, if possible.
