We need to use some of the utilities included in the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit due to ACL problems on a Windows 2000 Server, service pack 4. Will installing the programs from the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit supplement 1 CD cause problems since the Kit CD is older than the installed service pack? Are the Windows 2003 Server Resource Kit programs backward compatible with Windows 2000 servers, or are they really version-specific?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I really don’t know of any problems using the 2000 resource kit on sp4. I have used a few, but not for ACL problems. Some W2K3 utilities are specific, and others are not. You’ll need to verify which ones work with Win2000 on Microsoft’s site.

    No. Installing the programs from the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit supplement 1 CD will not cause problems, even though the Kit CD is older than the installed service pack. The worst that could happen is that the programs from the Kit might not run, but that's unlikely. They won't cause any problems, though.
