We've got a member server running Windows Server 2008 Standard 32-
bit. The server holds data in shared folders and also 3 SQL databases
on SQL Server 2008. The server currently has the max 4GB RAM.
I've had confirmation from the developers of the 3 packages that their
software will now run on the 64-bit version of Server 2008. To take
advantage of the extra RAM that the 64-bit version of Server 2008
allows you to install I'd like to put the 64-bit version of Server
2008 on the server.
The operating system is installed on the C: drive of the server and
all the data is stored on the D: drive.
What would be the most sensible way of getting Server 2008 Standard 64-
bit onto our member server?
Am I looking at a format and then re-install of the 64-bit version? I
presume there's no easy way of changing?
