  2. Hello RickyTR,

    Did you try to start the setup from the R2 disk, normally just insert the
    second R2 disk and run setup2.exe? DOes it work? AFAIK, you have to uninstall
    SP2 before installing R2 on it and then install the SP again.

    Best regards

    Normally it is just inserting the disk and start setup by hand or it runs
    automatic.

    Best regards

    Hi,

    You can refer to the following article to upgrade to Windows server 2003 R2.

    How to upgrade Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 to Windows Server
    2003 R2
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912309/en-us

    Upgrade to Windows Server 2003 R2
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/serviceproviders/wbh4_5/CMSU_ALL_UPG_PROC_U
    pgrade_to_Windows_Server_2003_R2.mspx?mfr=true

    Meanwhile, you should also verify the following before starting to upgrade
    window server 2003 to windows server 2003 R2:

    o Stock-keeping unit (Standard, Enterprise, or Datacenter)
    o Platform (x86 or x64)
    o Language version
    o Installed channel type
    o Channel type for the product key



    Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, this also fits for Windows server 2003 SP2. However, for some specific
    scenarios, we must remove Windows Server 2003 SP2 before upgrading. Please
    check if these scenarios mentioned in the article below fit for yours.

    Some scenarios, you must remove Windows Server 2003 SP2 before you upgrade
    to the full retail version of Windows Small
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932600/en-us

    <I need R2 especially to upgrade my existing DSF infrastructure to DFSR, is
    this possible?>

    After upgrading, you should migrate FRS to DRSR. However, there is no
    officially supported tool to migrate from FRS to DFS Replication. However,
    there is an unsupported script that can migrate FRS configuration to DFS
    Replication. For more information, read this blog post with sample VB code
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=73989.
