Dear all experts,

I've got one Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise which is running on Windows 2003 Standard Edition.  Both of them are running on the initialize version (ie. no service pack are installed).  Now, I would like to install Windows 2003 Server SP1 and Exchange 03 SP1 on it, but before the installation, I would like to know which service pack I should install it first.  Install Windows 03 SP1 first or Install Exchange SP1?  Please kindly advise.

Regards,

Why are you installing Exchange 2003 SP1? That is very old. You should be installing Exchange 2003 SP2, which has been out for well over a year and is rock solid.

As for the service pack sequence - Windows first. Then reboot, then Exchange.
