Should I apply the Windows 2003 SP2 to my Small Business Server? It fails during automatic updates, so I thought I should download it and install it manually. Is it failing because it shouldn't actually be applied?

I've got SP2 running on a few of my servers by now. All were rolled out with WSUS without any issues.
Exect for some memory warning all the SP2 servers have been running OK.
Hope that helps,
Olaf

Actually it doesn't. All I'm asking is if SBS should be patched using Server 2003 SP2. Anyone out there know?

The answer to this question is yes, Windows Server 2003 is the base OS and SBS is an extension of that OS. Therefore it should have the Server 2003 Service Pack installed.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

The answer is not that clear cut. As I said I am running it and all is OK but others have had issues especially with ISA.
It's your call and yes you can remove it.

Isn't this usually the case with anything Microsoft? That being said, technically speaking, the service pack should be applied.
