Upgrading Windows 2003 Web Edition to Standard Edition

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by Stephen Walch, Jan 17, 2005.

  1. I have a production system running Windows 2003 Web Edition and now I want
    to add Windows SharePoint Services. So I need to install SQL Server 2000
    and, of course, upgrade to Windows 2003 Standard Edition. My question is:
    How painful is this upgrade?

    The machine is located remotely, can I just upload the bytes and do the
    upgrade via Terminal Services?

    Am I likely to impact existing applications, security settings, etc.

  2. See
    And never ever do an OS upgrade via terminal services! You need to be in
    front of the box. Same with service packs, as far as I'm concerned.
