sbs2003 and Sharepoint >> stand alone?

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by BrianMultiLanguage, Nov 19, 2007.

  1. Is the Sharepoint in sbs similar to Dharepoint server?
    (dumb question I know.)
    We very recently moved from sbs to server std, I'll explain that below, and
    have been fielding many requests to get the company website/Sharepoint back
    up. Of course it will cost so I just want to buy the right product to replace
    And why did we move from sbs? The contractor said:
    "....all of our servers have been upgraded to windows 2003 server, we have
    migrated away from the SBS platform and to a true unified windows
    architecture, "
    end quote.

    Wasn't I thrilled by all of this.

    SharePoint Server is built on top of SharePoint Services. What you need to
    differentiate is the version you are considering of using. If by saying
    'SharePoint in SBS' you mean 'companyweb', they you are talking about
    Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, which is the old version. If this is what
    you mean, then you don't have to buy anything since WSS is a free add-on (or
    service) for Windows Server 2003. What you will need to focus on, is the
    migration of the sites from SBS
    to W2K3 server.

    As far as what the contractors said: .... lol

    If the contractor is a technology firm, then their pocket just got bigger.
    I have seen quotes from consulting firms in my area that they are pushing
    the full server products to businesses with under 10 employees only to bill
    more. Very unprofessional but it's happening

    FWIW I think SBS is one of the best values in the marketplace. The software,
    BTW, as you probably already know, is the same software as other versions of
    WIndows just limited in number of connections and number of distinct

    As far as the contractor, get another one :)

  4. Not my company and a year long battle over.
    We have tops 30 people so I know we were stuck like a pig.

    And thanks for the WSS info.
