No I won't get rid of the linux box, its our router as i have a couple of other servers internet side. The long term plan will probally be to get rid of SBS and use Linux for everything that faces the internet (just waiting for me to get confident enough!!!!)
Well, it must depend. I can say for certain that an Upgrade Advantage version does not require the original media. There may be others which do require the original disks. If you have already purchased an upgrade try it out on a spare workstation and check it out for yourself. BTW don't discard that Linux box yet:)
No, if you are upgrading on a new machine, you simply have to have the original media available.
Now if your 4.5 media is the upgrade from 4.0 then you need the 4.0 media

I am looking to do the migration of 4.5 -> 2000 on a new server as per the
SBS: How to Upgrade SBS 4.x to SBS 2000 on a New Computer (Part 1 of 2)
SBS: How to Upgrade SBS 4.x to SBS 2000 on a New Computer (Part 2 of 2)
My question are as follows:-
Does the upgrade software installation of SBS2000 require 4.5 to be loaded
Has anyone had any issues following the above?
What would one normally charge for a migration to a new Dell PE2500 server
Thanks in advance
