I get an 'access denied' error on Server 03R2 when I try to install SP2.  I have tried to install it as the local admin and my login credentials (I am a domain admin).  This is a fresh install of the virtual machine and Server 03.  I am using Virtual Server 2005.

Server 2003 SP1 R2 Internet Explorer 7 enhanced security does not allow you to run executables, except locally on that server.  you need to uninstall IE7 enhanced security from add/remove programs and install sp2..

If the service pack is located on a remote file server, you can also add that file server to your trusted zone in IE7.  use file://servername .

It is running IE 6.0.  I did uninstall the enhanced security from IE6 as well.  I have also just downloaded the setup from Microsoft's website and not run it though Windows Update (justput the install on desktop) and I get the same error.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I tired all of those things and nothing worked.

I just reinstalled the OS, ran the dowloaded SP2 package I already downloaded off of the desktop and then it worked just fine.
