Re: OS upgradation for machine hosting BES 5 from Win2003 to Win2008..

Is this the 64-bit version of Windows 2003? If so, you could make an inplace upgrade to Windows 2008 64-bit. Make sure your hardware fulfills the requirements for the new OS, make sure you have enough disk space.

In general, inplace upgrades are not recommended, so building up the new server in parallel is the better method (but needs second server and is more work).
