Hi
I have an issue with Backup Exec and their tech support has advised me to RE-apply service pack 2 to my sbs2003 server. Does anyone know if it is safe to do that? do I need to take any precautions before doing it?
Thanks
Andy

i've reapplied service packs alot in the past and never had a single issue.  it's just like adding a fresh coat of paint on something.

if you go to the MS update page after the initial reinstall of sp2, it'll tell you what needs to be reapplied.
