    Please let me know...the IT team mistakenly loaded 2003 server Professional
    on a server with 6GB of memory. I need to get to 2003 Enterprise Ed. without
    reloading all the applications/DB's and everything as we put this server into
    service without noticing the issue.

    Please Help!
