Here is a list for Microsoft Small Business Server tags that do not mention version number:
- sbs x 46
- sbs-server x 2
- small-business-server x 96
Here is a list of all SBS tags that I can find which are version specific:
Let's come to an official conclusion about how to name these tags.
Generic SBS tag
I propose small-business-server be the official base tag for the product line. sbs and sbs-server should be merged into small-business-server. "Microsoft" and "Windows" don't need to be in the tag. It is better served if that is a separate tag in the question, e.g. windows small-business-server ("Microsoft" is too broad of a keyword and doesn't seem helpful).
Certainly, the words "small business server" can mean something other than the Microsoft Windows Small Business Server product, but I doubt too many people are going to be tagging a question about a small server for their business with small-business-server and if they do, it can be retagged. Thoughts?
The new proposal for the generic SBS tag is windows-sbs-yyyy-feature as per womble's answer below.
Version Specific Tags
Either we petition for the tag length limit to be increased or we use the acronym "SBS" in the version specific tags. I propose that the nomenclature be SBS-[year]-[additional features]. So sbs2003 should be merged with sbs-2003. sbs-2011-essentials, while not existing yet, could just as sbs-2011-premium may exist as well.
That means that a post about the Exchange instance running on a Small Business Server 2008 machine would most logically be tagged with exchange-2007 and sbs-2008 and possibly include small-business-server and windows. Thoughts?
There will be no "base tag" of small-business-server - all tags will have the acronym "SBS" and the year. Perhaps having "Standard" and "Premium" in the tag isn't pertinent. Although, in SBS 2003 it was very pertinent (it was the difference between is you had ISA Server or not which could significantly change things).
Assuming what I laid out above is accepted, here is the course of action:
- Merge sbs, sbs-server and small-business-server into windows-sbs. We'd have to be careful for the questions tagged small-business-server that don't have anything to do with the Microsoft product.
- Change sbs-2000 into windows-sbs-2000
- Merge sbs2003 and sbs-2003 into windows-sbs-2003.
- Merge sbs-2008 into windows-sbs-2008
- Change sbs-2011 into windows-sbs-2011
Okay, as Womble pointed out small-business-server isn't the best tag for the product. ChrisS points out that windows-server-yyyy is the traditional tag format, so the new SBS tag should likely be windows-sbs-yyyy-feature. I've updated the action list above to reflect this.
Can tags be "auto-forwarded" so that the small-business-server is blocked and substituted with windows-sbs?
