Questions tagged [windows-server-2003-r2]

Windows Server 2003 R2 was an update of Windows Server 2003, rather than a new version of the operating system (as Windows Server 2008 R2 was). It went RTM on December 6, 2005, included a number of new features and was released for all editions and architectures supported by Server 2003, with the exception that Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition was not released for Itanium.
