Access and Share OS Help Files between Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 Computers

Happy New Year from the SBS Documentation team!

Some of us took a bit of time off in December, others of us worked through the holiday period in support of the content requirements for SBS SP1.  The entire team is now back in the saddle working on adding and enhancing content, and helping to improve your experience with Windows Small Business Server 2003.

From time to time, we will throw you a tip, or remind you of some little-known or little-used feature. So to usher in CY2005, we would like to point out a small feature that you may find useful!

If you administer a Windows Small Business Server 2003 or Windows Server 2003 family domain from a Windows XP-based computer, you may need access to the Help files for the server computer. Alternatively, if you spend most of your time on a server that is running a Windows Server 2003 family product, you may want to access the Help files for Windows XP to find information to help users. Both Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 have built in functionality that enables you to access and share the Help and Support files between the two operating systems. This feature can be very helpful to network administrators and help desk personnel who support users from remote locations.

To learn more about this neat feature, see KB article

To install or share Windows Help files, open Help and Support and click Options.

Have a great week!
