Hi Everyone
I am thinking of buying a used copy of windows server 20003. Will I be
able to update to the R2 version?
Many thanks in advance

Hello Tony,

R2 is a feature pack which requires additional licensing. So if you only
buy 2003, you have NONE R2 option available.

Hi Tony,

afaik, there is no upgrade license but if you would have a full licensed
copy of R2 you can actually change the product code and install the second
CD.
