Can't find post detailing correct order to install SBS2003 updates, hotfixes and patches.

I was looking at a solution an expert had give to a question and they listed the correct order that updates should be installed on Small Business Server 2003 Premium.

They started with Server 2003 SP2 which includes SP1 and then onto exchange updates and SBS2003 Service packs.

I can't find this post anywhere now as I had to reboot my machine and forgot to bookmark.

Can anyone help me find the post or list again the correct order to install updates on SBS2003 from a fresh install without any service packs integrated so the updates need to include SBS and Server 2003 SPs.

Thanks

I'm not entirely sure what you're looking for... because you don't start with Server 2003 SP2... SBS2003 is an integrated installation which would install Exchange during the initial process.  You don't install ANY service packs or updates untill you completely finish the installation process which includes completing the To-Do list wizards.

Perhaps, though you were referring to this post?: http:Q_22494643.html

I am not creating a working server. I am working on a spare server that is identical to our working server. I am wanting to test our current tape backups but before testing a full system recovery I need to have the server set up with the same updates as the current working one.

This is according to the Veritas Backup Executive restoration guide."Perfom a local recovery of a Microsoft Windows 2003 Small Business Server.

It tells you to install the bare minimum as the rest will be restored.

My post is asking if anyone has seen a previous post, which I have seen but cannot find, or know themselves what the correct order to install the SBS2003 updates is.

I know that SBS Service Packs and W2003 service packs are different but both should be installed. I just wanted the correct order. Someone clearly stated this in their post and I just can't seem to find it again.

Once the testing is done I plan to turn this spare server into the main server as the main server has lots of issues. Then I will do a full proper install and manually recover the data I need.

Okay, now I understand.  Perhaps you were referring to this post?  http:Q_22745145.html

But in any event, follow the instructions at http://sbsurl.com/sp1 

Instead of Windows Server 2003 SP1, substitute SP2, and the same for Exchange 2003 SP1, but otherwise do it in the order stated.
