[THIN] Re: 2003 and MF 1.8

Hi Anthony,
I've done it a few times now. With the exception of some profile issues
initially, having NT 4 and Server 2000 systems as part of the same XP farm
has worked well.

The only proviso is that I wouldn't under any circumstances consider
upgrading from NT 4.0 to Server 2000 in situ. Always build your 2000 systems
from scratch.

Of course what you should really do is go straight to Server 2003. Going
from NT 4.0 to 2000 is pointless. To date we've seen less problems on 2003
(and more things fixed) than on 2000.

Regards,

Rick

I initially heard some bad things about running XP on NT4 servers, then
upgrading.  Has anyone had any problems?  How seamless was the upgrade from
NT4.0/MFXP to win2000/MFXP?

Thanks -

Hi Anthony,
Upgrade your existing 1.8 farm to XP first. It's be worth your while to come
up wih a strategy for handling separate profiles for the 2 O.S.s. Then you
can mix and match. NT 4.0 to 2003 is relatively painless, as long as you
don't want to migrate SQL and Exchange as well ;-).

Regards,

Rick

I am on NT4 TSE and MF 1.8 for reasons beyond my control (political).  I am
putting a plan together to upgrade to MFXP.  I would like to be able to
upgrade the NT 4.0 servers to 2003 with MF 1.8, and then do an MFXP
migration.  I have over 100 servers to upgrade (myself) - so I have to do
this in stages that will not interrupt the business and will be seamless to
the users.
