  • Microsoft Site Server (any version)
  • SharePoint Team Services from Microsoft
  • Microsoft Office Server Extensions

  • Microsoft Project Server 2002 and Microsoft Project Server 2003
  • Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003

Note The SharePoint Portal Server documentation incorrectly describes how to configure coexistence with Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Standard Edition. This configuration is not supported.

277567 Cannot install SharePoint Portal Server on a computer running Exchange Server
The SharePoint Portal Server 2001 Readme file incorrectly describes how to install SharePoint Team Services from Microsoft on a server that is running SharePoint Portal Server. These products are not supported together because of conflicts that are caused by overlapping functionality. The products do successfully work together in the same environment when they are installed on separate servers.
