Common mistakes when upgrading from Exchange 2003 Standard Edition to Enterprise Edition

Upgrading from Exchange 2003 Standard Edition to Exchange 2003 Enterprise Edition can be more complicated than you'd think. Learn about some common upgrade mistakes.

I am trying to upgrade from Exchange 2003 Standard Edition to Exchange 2003 Enterprise Edition. Everything I have read states to simply run the setup program and then press the reinstall button. However, when I run Exchange 2003 Enterprise Edition, there is no option for reinstall. I was wondering if I might have purchased the full version instead of the upgrade. Do you think it would make a difference?
I think you would greatly benefit from the Microsoft support article, Common mistakes when upgrading Exchange 5.5/2000 to Exchange 2003. This should walk you through all the steps of the upgrade process, more than just clicking reinstall.
