SBS2003 upgrade from Standard edition to Premium R2

rpatton
Anybody know of any problems in doing this upgrade. We need ISA server, added to our SBS2003.

I have never done this as an upgrade, I usually do a clean install.

    just run the install from the premium technologies disc.

    Wizards will do all the configuring for you.

    Does the ISA software indentify my port info and IP address automatically or do i have to record that first?

    SBS 2003 best practice is to use 2 NICs. One for WAN, one for LAN. If you did not follow the best practice and used only 1 NIC, then you need to install a second NIC.

    ISA doesn't automatically configure your NIC. You can either have the WAN NIC obtain IP and DNS addressing automatically from your ISP or if you have a static address assign from the ISP, configure the NIC with those values.

    The WAN has the IP, DNS, and Default gateway defines. I was concerned anout the proxy set up does it change, or will the port still be 8080?

    Do i need to configer each workstation with proxy server? The SBS 2000 version required this.

    You won't have to change a thing at the workstations. Just have your users restart there machines after you make the change and they won't know the difference.

    the wizard configures everything for you.

    note: Install the ISA server firewall client program on clients.
