Whilst updating a couple of SBS 2003 SP1 Servers for DST I have just done a very silly thing on one of them.
Applied KB926666 to a machine running Exchange SP1
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926666
I did not notice the machine was running Exchange SP1 not SP2
Now the SBS Server hangs after a reboot on Applying computer settings.
So the server is currently unusable.. Thank good its the weekend !

I should have applied KB931978
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931978/

Which is for Exchange 2003 SP1

KB926666, would have changed the following, hence my issue.

File name File version File size Date Time Platform
Cdo.dll 6.5.7651.61 718,848 14-Dec-2006 23:00 x86
Cdoex.dll 6.5.7651.61 3,945,472 14-Dec-2006 22:15 x86
Davex.dll 6.5.7651.61 1,139,712 14-Dec-2006 22:08 x86
Excdo.dll 6.5.7651.61 3,692,544 14-Dec-2006 22:15 x86
Exoledb.dll 6.5.7651.61 2,616,320 14-Dec-2006 06:08 x86
Exosal.dll 6.5.7651.61 69,120 13-Dec-2006 23:33 x86
Lsmexhc.dll 6.5.7651.61 125,440 14-Dec-2006 21:23 x86
Madfb.dll 6.5.7651.61 525,312 14-Dec-2006 22:15 x86
Mdbmsg.dll 6.5.7651.61 3,375,104 14-Dec-2006 00:16 x86
Rtdsmcal.dll 6.5.7651.61 33,280 14-Dec-2006 21:29 x86
Store.exe 6.5.7651.61 4,879,360 13-Dec-2006 23:37 x86

I am thinking Safemode, and then remove KB926666 via Add/Remove, if it will boot into safe mode,

Any ideas ? Short of performing a restore via NT backup.

An urgent response would be appreciated.

After applying (or reapplying) KB931978 for SP1, check the cdo.dll version in X:\program files\exchsrvr\bin\cdo.dll. If the version has been rolled back to the older correct version, do a run: regsvr32 "X:\program files\exchsrvr\bin\cdo.dll" to reregister the correct version.

Oh and you should upgrade to SP2 if you can, is there a reason you're not out of curiosity?

Thanks for your advice, I ended up restoring the server I tried the above and Exchange got in a even worse state. I know what SBS is like once you get a fault you spend so much time trying to resolve, a restore is sometimes easier..

I thought I would kill 2 birds with one stone, anyways

1, Get the Server back to the State as of 10pm Friday Night. NO FAULT
2, Server is a DellSC420 which only had a Dell built 12 GB Part C:\
During the SBS NTBackup restore, I incresed this to 40 GB, as there was only 1 GB left orginally, and I was running out of ideas of how to free it up.
So I now have enough room, to install Exc SP2 and KB926666 and  Vista OWA Exchange patch.

Ah, so it was a C: drive capacity issue? Let me know how the Ex2003 SP2 + DST patch goes.
