WinServer 2008 R2 vs WinServer 2008 SP2 ?
Posted 05 May 2009 - 09:15 AM
Are they identical ? Or R2 is actually a new version of Server OS while SP2 is just a notable service pack impacting on original Server 2008 edition ?
Expertise please light me , thanks!

R2 general notes Microsoft established the R2 naming convention when Windows Server 2003 was still new and the first product to use this moniker was Windows Server 2003 R2. In case you're unfamiliar, the R2 product releases are designed to fill the gap between major architectural changes, allowing Microsoft to quickly deliver functional enhancements and address the changing market. Because these R2 versions are optional, businesses can simply choose to ignore them if they don't meet a pressing need.Windows Server 2008 R2 is includes key enhancements related to virtualization, management, IIS, scalability and reliability, and Windows 7 integration
I think they are both the same but R2 is newer than SP2 with more new features and in Server SP2 version we dont have Windows 7 intergration (Vista intergration only)

Server 2008 (SP1 or SP2) = Vista Codebase & Kernel
Server 2008 R2 = Windows 7 Codebase & Kernel

My question is, will R2 be an upgrade like we had with Server 2003, or will it require a full new install?

i wouldn't go upgrading anything dude,allways fresh install an os
Oh for sure. I mean with 2003 R2 there were two dics, and it only became R2 after running the setup from the 2nd disc once the install was done, so it appeared to be something of an upgrade as opposed to an entirely new install. Considering the entire kernel and codebase of 2008 is completely new, I doubt that would be the case though...
