Any issues with 2003 SP1 and norton antivirus 9.0

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?

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...

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...
