Microsoft has confirmed that there are some issues concerning compatibilty with some of its products and Windows 2003. Microsoft Content Management Server 2002 and Commerce Server 2002 will require individual (currently un-released) service updates to run on the new OS. SharePoint Portal Server 2001 however is a different matter, with a complete in-compatiblity tag slapped on by Microsoft.
The incompatibility "is a big deal, but honestly, there's enough compelling new stuff in [SharePoint Portal Server 2003] to make the upgrade attractive," said George Brown, president of Database Solutions, a Cherry Hill, N.J.-based solution provider.

Microsoft's "goal is to provide as seamless a migration as possible" to SharePoint Portal Server 2003 from SharePoint Portal Server 2001, said Erik Ryan, product manager at the Redmond, Wash.-based company. The new version is due late this summer or early fall.
