Installing Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 on a Server Running Windows Small Business Server 2003

Updated: May 27, 2009

Applies To: Windows SBS 2003

The Windows® Small Business Server 2003 server software (Windows SBS) deeply integrates key Microsoft business productivity server products, including Windows SharePoint® Services 2.0. A new version of the Windows SharePoint technology, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, is now available, and it provides enhanced features for your Windows SBS network. However, some of the differences between Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 break the integration between Windows SBS and Windows SharePoint Services. For this reason, if you want to install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 on a Windows SBS network, you must install it side-by-side with Windows SharePoint Services 2.0. This leaves your existing http://companyweb Web site intact, and it also creates a new Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Web site.

This document shows you how to install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 side-by-side with Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, so you can use the exciting new features in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 without breaking the integration between Windows SBS and Windows SharePoint Services 2.0.

CautionCaution
When you install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 on your server, do not choose Gradual upgrade or In-place upgrade. If you do, several Windows SBS administration tools will fail, and you might lose data on your Windows SharePoint Services sites. You must choose No, do not upgrade at this time, which results in a side-by-side installation.

CautionCaution
You must maintain your http://companyweb Web site as a Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 installation. Upgrading the site to Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 is not supported.

ImportantImportant
It is strongly recommended that you back up your server before you install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. For more information about backing up your server, see "Backing Up and Restoring Windows Small Business Server 2003" at the Microsoft Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=39741).

Process Steps

Use the following process steps to install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 side-by-side with Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 on a server that is running Windows SBS 2003:

  • Step 1: Install Microsoft® .NET Framework 3.0.

  • Step 2: Install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.

  • Step 3: Install the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 update package, KB 934790, if applicable.

  • Step 4: Configure Windows SharePoint Services Products and Technologies.

  • Step 5: Create a new intranet site using Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.

  • Step 6: Delete the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 default Web site.

  • Step 7: Start the default Web site and the Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 http://companyweb Web site.

After you install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 side-by-side with Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, Windows SBS administrative tools continue to work properly with Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, but do not interact with Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. Windows SBS repair scenarios, such as uninstalling and reinstalling Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, also work properly and do not interact with the new Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site.

Limitations

The following is a known limitation in running Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 with Windows SBS:

  • The integration of incoming e-mail with Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 does not work because of a conflict with Exchange.
