Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 issues and Citrix Metaframe XP

Posted on 2004-11-17

I'm currently running Citrix Metaframe XP on Windows 2000 Service Pack 3. We would like to upgrade both to the most current service pack levels.

I have done some research on this and found conflicting results. Are there still issues relating to installing Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 in a Citrix Metaframe XP environment? Either way what is correct order for servcie pack install? Windows Service Pack 4 first, or Citrix Metaframe Service Pack 3 first?

    I am running Windows 2000 SP4 and Metaframe XP FR3 - I went OS first and the Citrix - No hiccups what so ever.
    It has been running like a champ ever since!

    Did you just download Windows 2000 SP4 from the ms website? Or did you have to apply patches seperately?

    Accepted Solution

    I downloaded from MS website - and I also had a disk - 6/half dozen. If you are still a little skeptical
    just make sure when you install SP4 you archive files so you can roll back to SP3 if needed. I also have
    a Citrix server running W2K SP4 and Metaframe XP Service pack 1(taking it out of servce). Always, Always make a backup
    before proceeding - CYA - but i wouldn't fret too much about installing SP4.
