SBS 2003 Links


This Mickyj.com page is a series of links and pointers I use at almost every SBS installation I do.
These are the tools, KB articles and references that I find invaluable.

I suspect you might also find these handy so I thought I would start a list for you.

If you have SBS R2 media from July 2006
Microsoft Small Business Server R2 bits are being recalled from partners who've received them because the latest build inadvertently included some old code, Microsoft said Friday.

"We discovered an issue in the manufacturing process and are recalling the outstanding editions and reissuing them,"
said Steven van Roekel, director of Windows Server Solutions.
"In that build process, someone mistakenly grabbed some of the older core components which were included."
This issue does not occur in newer copies of the software and a solution was issued to correct it for those with old copies.

If you have SBS R2 SP2 media from August 2007
