  • Well, I don't see Support End Date, too. What does this mean? Until when security patches for Windows Server 2003 SP2 x86 will be released?

  • I had the exact same question.

    The answer provided was not an answer for two reasons:

    1) It is a few sentences with a link (when a real answer would be something like July 14, 2015).

    2) The link provided also does not answer the question.  A better link would be www.google.com.

    The answer to the question is JULY 14, 2015, and I found that on a Microsoft site here:

    You do realize I hope, that the post you responded to was made 3 years ago?

  • The link (http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=3198) mentioned has no Service Pack Support End Date for Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2. Further more, it has nothing but a review note that says, "Support ends 24 months after the next service pack releases or at the end of the product's support lifecycle, whichever comes first. For more information, please see the service pack policy  here ."

    According to http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/#tab2, the Microsoft Support Lifecycle Policy is: 5 years Mainstream Support at the supported service pack level for Consumer and Multimedia products

    So, I think I understand that Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 'had' an EOL at 13.Mar.2012 (5 years after the SP2 came out). It could have been the 28.May.2013 (10 years after the product was released) except that the other date (13.Mar.2012) happened first.

    Am I correct? Apparently I'm not. July 14, 2015

    How is my calculation off by so much?

    Why doesn't 'Windows Server 2003 SP 2' have a 'SP Support End Date' like 'Windows Server 2003 SP 1' has a 'SP Support End Date'? Isn't it one of the aforementioned dates?

    Windows Server is neither a consumer nor a multimedia product for one
    thing.
