Preparing for Server Configuration
Updated: March 28, 2003
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2
If you have existing Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000 site-to-site connections, you must decide whether to upgrade your routers to Windows Server 2003 and migrate to the Windows Server 2003 Routing and Remote Access service, or whether to continue to support your current configuration. Before you install the Routing and Remote Access service on your demand-dial routers, you must decide how many routers you need, and you must make sure that the computers meet Windows Server 2003 requirements.
For more information about creating hardware and software inventories, see "Planning for Deployment" in Planning, Testing, and Piloting Deployment Projects of this kit. The flowchart in Figure 10.8 shows the tasks required when preparing to configure the router server.
