Which versions of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 are usable in conjunction with SwyxWare version 4.20 and higher ?
Microsoft offers the following versions of Windows Server 2003:
- Web Edition
- Standard Edition
- Enterprise Edition
- Datacenter Edition
Additionally a software bundle named "Small Business Server 2003" is available in a Standard and a Premium Edition. This bundle contains the Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition and is just a bundle of the Windows Server with some other Microsoft Server products (like Exchange, SQL etc.).
The best choise for using SwyxWare version 4.20 and higher is the Standard Edition of the Windows Server 2003. If possible, the Windows Server should be used exclusively for SwyxWare.
Because the "Small Business Server 2003" contains the Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition, it is ok to use SwyxWare with this server. But you have to make sure, that there is always enough memory and performance left for the SwyxWare. Please keep this topic in mind on assembling the hardware of the server. For more details regarding the hardware take a look at this KB article: Hardware Recommendations for SwyxWare (Overview) (kb2155)
The Enterprise and Datacenter Edition can also be used with SwyxWare, but keep in mind, that there should always be enough performance left for the SwyxWare!
It is not allowed to use the Web Edition, because Microsoft does forbid via the license agreement to use this Web Edition with other services than web services. Additionally the number of concurrent SMB network connections (which are necessary for SwyxIt!-Users) is limited to 10.
Note: starting with SwyxWare v6.01 previous installation of service pack 1 for Windows Server 2003 is required before upgrading or installation of SwyxWare!
