SBS 2008 and XP

Hello All,

Has anyone successfully being able to setup and manage SBS 2008 Premium and 
Win XP Pro? What problems did you encounter? Will you say they successfully 
play well together? What caveats are there? Anything else to watch out for?

Thank you.

No reason to expect that SBS 2008 and XP Pro will not play nice.  Premium 
has nothing to do with it, as the Premium SKU allows for, and furnishes, 
a separate copy of Server 2008 and SQL.  The SBS box is identical in either 

There are additional benefits to the stations being Vista or Win7, but you 
should expect XP Pro, SP3 to be working and supported.  If you have issues, 
please let us know what you are seeing.

Please post the resolution to your
issue so others may benefit

SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 migration headache!
Hi folks, Hoping someone can help me :( After spending yesterday prepping the source server- running both SBS 2003 Best Practices Analyzer and Exchange Best Practices Analyzer (and resolving all issues until they both came back clean), full backup, Migration Prep Tool, answer file etc I was finally ready to get going with the destination server today. I was very thorough with the documentation, taking it all step by step. All looked well, until it seemed to hang on what looked to be a final step. I don't recall getting the replication delay pop-up that I've seen m...

OWA setup on SBS 2003
Hi, I can't access OWA on an SBS 2003 server, for any user. Not sure what is stopping it - is it ISA settings? I've checked in Active Directory Users and Domains under the user and they are permitted to use OWA. Also tried to connect using Sever Activesync and a smart phone, but that failed too. Hope you can help. Neil Hi, Could be ISA server stopping OWA from functioning, could also be a lot of other things (like permisions on folders, web site etc). What happens when you try to access OWA?

Excel Question
This is probably a silly question, but I can't figure it out. In Office 2000 in Excel when you select two columns and right click it included the option to "Unhide" or "Hide". In Office XP in Excel I can not select two columns it automatically expands the selection to include the Merged Row above it which includes all the columns below - not just the two I selected. When I select just two cells the right click does not include the option to "Unhide" or "Hide". I have to go to the format menu, select column and select "Unhide" or &q...

Bugs worked out with XP SP2 and Outlook?
When SP2 just came out, one functionality that existed in Outlook 2003 (while using Word as e-mail editor) didn't work anymore, the icons (in Web Tools toolbar) that allowed embedding of sound, video, and marquee text in e-mail. I wrote about that problem here, and there was a response that that is a known bug, that Microsoft was working on. Has there been a fix for this yet, either through a SP2 update, or an Outlook 2003 update? Are you running Windows XP SP2? I think that is what has broken it (or an update to IE). It's broken in Outlook 2003 too. " MS" <ms@nospa...

Migrating AD Back to SBS
We had a domain which was working in a SBS2003 normally but since we had to change the hardware we added a second DC which is a windows 2008 and transferred all the roles to it, and let it working alone. Everything is fine now with the win2008 as a only Domain Controller We now have to reinstall back the SBS2003 and transfer everything to it from the win2008, is that possible? is there any how-to or best practices? As it seems that all i can do is start a new domain from scratch. Thanks, Chris There is an official MS document for adding SBS 2003 to a Server 2003 domain, but...

Change from SBS 2003 to SBS 2003 R2
Does anyone know if the license from Windows SBS 2003 works on R2 Edition? Here's my situation: I have an old server running Win SBS 2003. This is a new client and i just found the installation to be all screwed up (they are not even using Exchange, the domain is not .local, I cant find the SBS management panel, etc ) and barring any magic solution that allows me to improve on the current install, what i really want is to start from scratch, probably on different hardware (new server). So I whas thinking to my buttons: During reinstallation, can I now use the latest ver...

Outlook XP crashes when using Tasks
Outlook will crash when using Tasks. Here are the things I have tried. Used XP's Restore function to go back to a time when it worked fine. 1. Ran 2 virus scans with two different products. 2. Deinstalled Office XP, ran a defrag, and then reinstalled. 3. It will function propertly for about 2 minutes and then crash. There is an Exchange 2000 server involved as well. He can access his Tasks on another PC with no problem, so I know it is related to his machine. The offending file is an Outllib.dll, at least from the technical notes and log files. Any thoughts? ...

Same account for several XP Users
Hi. I'm just wondering what the best way to set up Outlook 2000 is, so that each of the four members of my family that use the PC can all access the same inbox and email account, despite logging into XP as separate users.

NT4 SBS to 2003 SBS

I tried to make a trust relationship, but you can't do that with SBS 2003!. Should I use Outlook to log on as a user, copy all data to a .pst from the old Exchange 5.5, then make new users and mailboxes on the new server and copy from the .pst to the new 2003 mailbox? Only 10 users, 700MB in total. Thanks Neal. ...

Excel XP (2002) Workbook Sharing
Some of my users have created an excel file and have it set to share, merging changes when they close the file. The file is located on a windows server 2003 file share. Here's the problem. The owner and creator of the file always can see the latest changes. Everyone else who accesses the file seems to get older versions of the file (previous changes). I have tried deleting their local temp files in their profile directories (documents and settings/user/local settings) but the problem stilll exists. I have also ensured that when the file server is freshly rebooted (ensuring no one has it op...

SBS 2008 + terminal services.
Hi there, A customer of mine is asking for file-server & Exchange services that would be well served by SBS 2008. They currently use VNC quite regularly (to work from home, foreign work- related trips), and the impression I get is that an SBS domain would pretty much involve switching to Remote Web Workplace. I'm not sure if this is essential, but it seems like it would make more sense to have remote desktopping managed by the domain controller, rather than on an ad-hoc basis. I understand why the version of Terminal Services to accommodate end-users isn't ava...

Lost Win98 emails when upgrade to XP
Hi, I've just upgraded from Win98 (Ver 1) to XP and all my accumulated emails have disappeared. Bizarrely a few emails that were once received under Win98 (ver 2 ) and lost when I previously reverted to version 1 have now reappeared. It appears that XP stores emails in a different place from Win98 (ver 1) but perhaps the same place as version 2. I think the lost emails are still there in C:\Documents and Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook Express (and \mail) but may have a different extension. How can I recover these? Perhaps I can simply rename them but don't feel confide...

What is the best way to give each RemoteApp user their own dex.ini? or Is there a way to blank out the "Last User" in the login screen?
