Updating msi.dll, ISA 2004 SP2, and installation of WSUS question.

We have Small Business Server 2003 Premium R2.

1) Should I update to ISA 2004 Service Pack 2?  Is there any "got ya" I should be watching out for?

2) Should I installed the msi.dll patch to fix the memory leak since I am not using WSUS?

3) Should I install WSUS?  I've heard that it's a resource hog.  We only have about 5-6 machines on this network so I am wondering if it's even worth it.

WSUS on SBS server would be a killer app in my personal opinion. You are correct about its resource usage although others may take a different view.

I have not specifically installed the msi.dll patch on any of the systems I support unless it has been included in standard MS upadtes or SBS service packs but I also do not run WSUS on any SBS systems.

ISA2004 sp2 is reported as supported on Windows 2000 server and Windows 2003 server only.

However, SBS2003R2 does support the ISA2004 SP2 and yes, it is well worth installing. There is an additional patch required afterwards for post sp2 http fixes also needed.

HI Keith,

Thanks for the quick reply.  You mentioned SBS2003R2 does support ISA2004 SP2.  Has this solution been tested and proven working without any problem?  Do you have the link to that additional patch for post http fixes you were referring to?

By the way Keith.  I wonder why the community team at Microsoft ISA Server mentioned that ISA will stop working when installing ISA 2004 SP2 on SBS 2003R2.  This worries me because you stated that SBS2003R2 does support the update to ISA 2004 SP2.  Please advise.  Thank you.

When you open the link see the list of what others are downloading (These are users who have downloaded the rollup patch for SBS2003 etc.

9th Question.

No idea why they would say it stops working.  If you know something I don't, do you want to share it and I'll check it out?

Its your call at the end of the day. If you want then wait and see what other responses you get from other experts. ISA is my speciality, not SBS server so maybe you will get better advice shortly.

* So this patch will take care of the post http fixes?  I wonder if this patch can also be installed on the R2 edition of SBS 2003 Premium.  

Please disregard the other question.  They thought it was for Windows 2003 SP2, which they said is having problem with ISA.
