Hi, You should have any one earlier storage server with you then you can install this on the machine.

Please check on the below notes. If you have any one Product Listed below then you can install. The Software you have is based on the Product number of the server.

hmmmm, but this is not logical to me. We have dl 380 g5 with full version server 2003 and want to upgrade from more powerful version windows (like downgrade). I dont think that we will have licence problems with that installation.
