are you or your brother (or either of your parents/other members of your family) students? If so you can (each) get full versions of Server 2008, Server 2008 R2 and Server 2003 R2. You don't get CALs and you can't use them for production (as with TechNet), but they are ideal for testing/learning.

Do you have all of the firmwares for the NetApps up to date? That software is likely to be harder to get hold of than any MS OS or otherwise.

I understand money is tight, can't blame you there. I would do as the_beast suggested and check out prices for students for server 2008. I wouldn't run 2003 as it's not much use anymore (unless you have a specific software that can only run on 2003.

You will probably find more Server 2003 licences than 2008 still...

But for students, Dreamspark is free - no pricing to check out, just a full licence to play with.

We have to have 2003 and 2008 for my mom (she is going to be using the lab to help learn FAS).

None of us are students. Besides, my stepdad's friend is giving us this stuff for free And as for 2003, I am just going off what my stepdad said.

I still do not know much the details as we have not had time to work on it lately.

Man, talk about putting the cart before the horse. You bought all of these on Ebay for what can only be assumed as a reasonable amount of money, yet you did not get the OS's for them. I would have scaled down the environment and gotten an OS for at least one of the systems. At least then you could be working on something rather than looking at some blinky hardware that doesn't do anything.

I mean really - when you've got that much coin tied up in hardware, how can you not spend $350 on a technet subscription to get all of the software you need?

One more suggestion - look on eBay for old servers with 2003 COAs on them - you can probably get something better hardware-wise than some of what you already have for cheap and get the software thrown in with it.

By free, I mean he is getting them off of technet and giving them to us. That is what I mean by "free"

Also, for what we are doing (it is just a lab for learning, nothing more) there is no need to upgrade anything or getting bigger badder stuff.
