How to update a MS server running SBS 2008 R2 ver 6.0 (build 6001 sp2) to SBS 2008 R2 ver 6.1 (build 7601 SP1). RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am seeking guidance on how to update a MS server running SBS 2008 R2 ver 6.0 (build 6001 sp2) to SBS 2008 R2 ver 6.1 (build 7601 SP1). 

    This is required as a fix to support the MozyPro client (off site back up and recover service) which has a new version released to support TLS 2.0 and needs SBS 2008 r2 ver 6.1 (Build 7601 SP1) to allow installation of the new client.)

  • Huh?  SBS 2011s just Windows server 2008 R2.  Just install Windows server 2008 R2 sp1.

    In the case of SBS, run MU and don't install any newer .net.  You sure you aren't looking at a Windows SBS 2008 with server 2008 Sp2 and not SBS 2011 - as there is no such thing as SBS 2008 R2.  It's called SBS 2011.

    Bottom line there is no way to "upgrade" a SBS 2008 box to a SBS 2011 box.  It's a migration.

  • hi,
    I haven't heard that there was SBS2008 R2 , I think you want to use SBS2011 . 
    By now, you have probably heard the news that Microsoft has announced the End-of-Life (EOL) of Windows Small Business Server (SBS) with the final version being SBS 2011. In addition, as of December 31, 2013

    Why not to migrate to server 2016 essential or server 2019 essentials ?
