Apologies if this has been asked before but for some reason i keep getting page not found when i try to search for anything

I have gotten hold of an old Rack Mount Server and want to use it to run Slimserver amongst a few other programmes. My question is will Slimserver run on either Windows server 2003 or windows 2000 server.

Yes, I have it running on W2003 Server standard edition. It also works on the web edition.

Thanks a lot for the quick answer.

I assume you use the 2000/xp version of slimserver.

I run slimserver on Windows 2003. It doesn't take up much resource. yes the XP version will work.

I used to run it on Windows2000 with no problems (until hardware problems killed the machine... :-)

(Has anyone tried SlimServer on Vista betas yet, btw?)

I have it running on latest beta of Longhorn and Windows 2003std server R2. Both servers run as a virtual server using MS Virtual server 2005 r2 (32bit). Host is Win2003 Enterprise edition R2 32Bit.

I also tried Slimserver on Windows 2003 R2 64Bit, but Slimserver does not want to start, it keeps giving status 'starting slimserver'

I had it running on Win2k3 Small Business Server briefly, before abandoning that project and getting a Qnap TS-101 NAS box instead. there were various reasons for that, none of them related the SlimServer :)

One this i noticed when installing it though. After the first install it would never start, i had to re-boot the server and install again over the top and it worked fine. That was pre 6.2.2 and i have the feeling there was a setup bug fixed for that at some point.

windows 2000 server here...

6.3.1 didn't want to start when I first installed it so I just re-installed it and it popped right up.
