There are some known issues with SP2 but they are only minor things.

It is a well-known issue that service packs may cause some services become inoperable, may cause troubles. Before applying, take a full backup, specify path for uninstallation during SP2 setup, so in case, you can remove it via Add/Remove programs.

The only thing I noticed while applying SP2 to and Exchange server was that the Exchange services were temporarily stopped while the SP was being installed. I did not expect this, I only expected to have to reboot when finished. So make sure no one is connected to Exchange while applying the upgrade. And also be ready to reboot when it's finished.
