Updated: March 28, 2003
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2
Conducting the pilot is the last major step before deployment of the Microsoft® Windows® Server 2003 operating system. During the pilot, your release management team tests your design in a controlled environment in which users perform their normal business tasks using the new features. This demonstrates that the design works in the production environment as expected and that it meets the organization’s business requirements.
