Hello ,

Thank you for your post.

I noticed that you submitted the same problem in
microsoft.public.windows.server.migration (Subject: upgrade from Windows
Server 2003 Standard R2 to Windows Server 2003 Enterprise R2) newsgroup and
I have replied there.

Let's focus on that thread on this issue, please. It is easier for us to
track your issue and make sure we respond promptly.

Thanks and have a great day!

Hello,

Thank you for using newsgroup!

We don't provide the update pack to upgrade from Windows Server 2003
Standard R2 to Windows Server 2003 Enterprise R2. You can upgrade Standard
to Enterprise via performing an In-Place Upgrade of Windows Server 2003
Standard R2. Thus, you need to purchase a copy of Windows Server 2003
Enterprise R2.

Thanks & Regards,

Mike Luo

upgrade from Windows Server 2003 Standard R2 to Windows Server 2003 Enterprise R2

Hello:

We have a Windows 2003 Enterprise license.

I'm trying to utilize more than 4.0gb of RAM.

Can I perform an upgrade from standard to enterprise without having to
format the server so I can just start utilizing the additional physical RAM?

Thank you!

Hello,

You can perform an In-Place Upgrade on Windows 2003 Standard and then you
can use more than 4 GB physical RAM.
