Microsoft has announced the official end of extended support for Windows Server 2003. Microsoft believes there are over nine million instances of Windows Server 2003 in production today in North America! The deadline for End-Of-Support (EOS) is July 14, 2015 and I suspect Microsoft will not move that date because they didn’t extend the Microsoft XP EOS date. Essentially on July 14, 2015 Microsoft will stop patching the Windows Server 2003 operating system and they will no longer issue security updates. What should an IT Manager do? Hackers all over the world will be focusing on attacking an unprotected operating system. Needless to say, IT managers must get all of your Windows Server 2003 instances discovered, documented and migrated.
