Hello,

I would like to know before installing SP1 on server 2003 if there are any issues while rinning norton antivirus 9.0 . Do i need to stop the service and then install the sp1....then reboot .
All my clients connect to this server to get the updates....so what impact will users experience when i install sp1 during regular business hours? I have a powerfull HP server with 4 Gigs of memory and 4 processors. This is also a DC.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Tacobell2000,

In most cases it wouldn't mind if you install SP1 on the running server. Altough you might get some issues with Norton Antivirus. I would say, run Norton and install SP1 in non-business hours. Also run Norton in safe-mode so it can really work it with all the files...

Let me know how it goes...

Tacobell2000,

With 4 Ghz of memory you should be able to install SP1, download a movie, run PhotoShop, watch a movie and listen to your favorite MP3s all at the same time. So don't worry about installing SP1, you machine won't even notice...
