Default Upgrade 4.5 ---> 2000


I have a SBS 4.5 box with 25 licenses. We are purchasing a new server and I
will need to migrate to it. The old server will no longer be part of the
network.

From what I've seen, my 4.5 licenses are not transferable to 2000, so I
would need to buy the 4.5 to 2000 upgrade and then 4 additional add packs to
get to 25. This part I think I'm clear on, but please correct me if I'm
wrong.

Since we're migrating to a new box, am I just better off buying a full
retail of version of 2000 (I would still qualify for the upgrade CAL's,
correct?) and avoid the hassel of upgrading the OS between two different
machines? This cost difference isn't going to be so much if it's going to
save me a lot of time.

Thanks.

Jeff

IMHO I think I'd be considering the jump to sbs2k3.....

I agree, but it's not an option. I have to complete this process by
November 1st, give or take a few days and 2003 has not been released as of
yet.

You could put on RTC and upgrade from that.

It's RTM and should be in the stores right around that time.....

Pity that the SKU's aren't out as buying 2003 via open license and taking
a "Tech Downgrade" to SBS 2000 for the initial ( interim ) install might be
an option.

The final Upgrade to SBS 2003 would then be done when convenient
and the only additional cost ( other than Tech Costs ) would be the cost
of the media.

The preview kit also only comes with 5 CALs (if I've read correctly),
so you couldn't upgrade the Domain. SBS 2K + SA is going to be
more expensive.

Tough Timing.
