My customer asked me to upgrade their Windows 2003 web server last week, as we know, Windows Server 2003 extended support ended on July 14,2015, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2003. Unfortunately, I noticed the Web server is Windows 2003 x86 server, there is no way to in-place upgrade it to x64, the only way is upgrade it to Windows Server 2008 x86, it will give a couple years to prepare web server migration plan at least. Let’s follow step by step to upgrade it.

@MVPDays V-Conf – The gift of Community by @MRThomasRayner and @DaveKawula

Hey MVPDays Fans, Today MVP Thomas Rayner and myself delivered a great session about community at the MVPDays Virtual Conference. We chatted about all things community in this great 30 minute quick hitter session. Microsoft MVPs have hugely diverse backgrounds, expertise, and strengths, but one thing every MVP shares is a passion for COMMUNITY. Giving back to the technical community is how MVPs get awarded, but getting awarded is not why MVPs do what they do.
