Exchange 2007 SP1 Rollup 4 Question

I was one of the unfortunate admins who chose to perform routine server maintenance on our Exchange server on a day when Microsoft accidentally released a pre-release rollup 4 package via Windows Update.  I currently have exchange version 8.1.311.1, which is Exchange 2007 SP1 with Rollup 4.  We have a few Symantec Backup Exec 12 problems which I have read are caused by this rollup. See here: http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2008/09/11/449787.aspx
My question is can I install the Rollup 4 version 2 over top of rollup 4 version 1? Or should I uninstall the version 1 rollup and then install the version 2 rollup.

Preferably remove all earlier installed version - includes the earlier installed rollupt4 and have a fresh setup

so my server with RU4 on is reporting 8.1.311.2

I suppose it's all swings and roundabouts.  The .MSP will unpack it's contents and the a "reinstall" of exchange replacing using it's newer contents .

With that in mind, you should just be able to install RU4 .. it does look like is the new one has a new build.

BUT it is was me, I would remove it and install the new one.  How many servers do you have to do?

just one exchange server so a uninstall and reinstall is not that big of a deal.

I did the uninstall and then the reinstall of rollup 4 and it worked just fine with very little downtime. Thanks exchange geek, flaphead, and of course Microsoft cause we wouldnt be asking this question if they didnt screw up.
