Windows Server 2008 R2 Management Forum being merged with Windows Server Forums - Management RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • On July 1, we will be making this forum read only. After receiving a lot of feedback from the community, it was decided that this forum is a duplication and therefore redundant of the Management Forum. So, until July 1, we will start asking customers to redirect their questions to the Management Forum. On June 11, CSS engineers will move any new threads to the Management Forum.

     

    Please post a reply to this thread if you have any feedback on this decision or the process. You can also email WSSDComm@microsoft.com.

     

    Thanks,

  • Kevin,

    Since there is no more Windows Server 2003 forum, where are we supposed to post for 2003 questions? What if it's NOT a management issue? Everything is clearly marked server 2008.... Most people in my field still use 2003 and we should have a place that is marked for those threads. Please let me know.

     

    Thanks

  • You can post both Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 threads in Windows Server Forum. If it is not easy for your to find a specific sub-forum, you can post your thread in General Forum.

  • So there is no Windows Server 2003 forum anymore? What happened to all the threads in that forum? Were they migrated to the 2008 forum? Maybe a better name for the forum would be just "Windows Server" instead of Windows Server 2008. This title confuses people and makes them think you cannot post 2003 issues there. Just a thought. Thanks

  • Hi,

     

    The forum is not named as Windows Server 2008 forum. Its name is "Windows Server Forums".

     

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/windowsserver

     

    Therefore, you can post any threads related to Windows 2000 Server, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008. Personally, I do not agree this will confuse customers.

     

    And we have never had a forum named Windows Server 2003 forum. Before, we had Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003 newsgroup. Now they are replaced by this Windows Server forum.

  • Tim,

     

    If you take a look, in order to post this I had to post under Windows Server Forums BUT then Windows Server 2008 R2.... If you choose a topic it is posted under "Windows Server 2008 R2 etc".

     

    Thanks

  • Hi,

     

    There are also many sub-forums whose names do not begin with “Windows Server 2008 R2”. For example, General and Directory Services. And sub-forums whose names beginning with “Windows Server 2008 R2” will retire from July 1st.

  • Great. I think retiring those will help some people who aren't sure where to post.

     

    Thanks
