Installing Server 2008

I am finally getting around to setting up a replacement domain controller. I decided to install server 2008 and have the latest and greatest. So far I have a couple of issues.
1. No Dell OpenManage for Server 2008 - not a big deal.
2. Can't install SQL 2000 on Server 2008. This is used by our BES server and I am not paying to upgrade to SQL 2005. I bet I could convert this box to my new Virtuozzo box without any problems. hmmm. When I get the new hardware I will try it out. The cost of another Server license is surely less than a SQL License. Or is it?

Besides, so far so good.

I think it's funny that Server 2008 was released as Server 2008 with SP1. But whatever, so far it works.

Not sure if you found it yet, but we released OM 5.4 couple of days ago with Windows Server 2008 support.

Here's a link to my work blog about it -->

Would also be great to have you as part of the Dell TechCenter Community.
