"Instructions for installing Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 on HP ProLiant and tc servers"

"Upgrade considerations
Microsoft does not support upgrades from Microsoft Windows SBS 4.5 to Microsoft Windows SBS 2003 or to Microsoft Windows SBS 2003 SP1."

So, best way - install SVS 2003 from "scratch" using above document

Re: Compaq ProLiant ML350 G3 Upgrade

Thank you, I saw the threads / links you sent, but did not see an upgrade path for SBS2003. Is there a known problem with an in-place upgrade of SBS2003 from SBS2000?

Sorry, I missed you have SBS 2000, not SBS 4.5.

AFAIK, you can do upgrade from SBS 2000 to SBS 2003 without any problem.

Make sure you have last server firmware

Make sure you have at least PSP 7.30 for windows 2000 version installed.

Hello all... Igor, Why did you say "Make sure you have at least PSP 7.30 for windows 2000 version installedâ

Actually, itâ s recommended to download and install the latest PSP for this server which is PSP 7.51 you can download it from this page http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/24536.html once the PSP is installed you can go ahead and proceed with the normal installation of W2K3 SBS.

>>> Igor, Why did you say "Make sure you have at least PSP 7.30 for windows 2000 version installedâ Â

Just because 7.30 is minimal requirement for windows 2003 upgrade. Of course, later PSP versions (7.40, 7.50, 7.51) is excellent choice as well :-)
