Upgr. from Win2k Pro to Win2k Server

By ottarro ·
My problem is that I want to upgrade/promote a Win2k Professional to Win2k Server. It doesn?t seem simple because the message I get is that Win2k Pro can?t be upgraded to Win2k Server. Is that right? It seems to be illogical to have to make a clean install on this machine. There aught to be more compatibility built in this software.

Thnax in advance.

No, it's impossible to upgrade W2K Pro to server. Take a look at the followig issue:

Actually, I don't see what is illogical about having a workstation product that won't upgrade to a server product. Although they both carry the Windows2000 name, they really ARE separate products with different uses.

The compatibility is at the user-interface level and that is probably where it should be.
