Home Server and SBS 2003

Using Windows Home Server to Back Up Windows Small Business Client Computers – THE OFFICIAL BLOG OF THE SBS “DIVA”:

One thing of note on this, it doesn’t have to only be on a SBS 2008 network that you use Home Server to backup the client servers.  It is also on a SBS 2003 network as well that you can use the Home Server platform to backup the client machines.  And you can purchase multiple Home Server boxes to backup additiona workstations if you desire.  Just edit the Server name on the second and third home server box.

    Just for fun, I backed up an SBS 2003 server and did a bare-metal restore to the same box, and it worked just fine. I did shut down Exchange and Sharepoint before I did a manual backup. Why shouldn’t I be using WHS to back up the server too, especially the redirected My Docs and file shares that are on the server? I did not see anything in the EULA preventing me from installing the connector on a “client” that happens to be a server. What am I missing?
