Update AD 2003 server to to sp2?

I have 4 2003 DC's in a domain. All run SP1

I want to update one of them to sp2 and not the other 3. Can anyone think of any issues this would cause me?

Thank you

Nope, unless you have specific apps on the server that does not support SP2. I ran SP1 & SP2 on domain controllers for several months to make sure SP2 was fine before I upgarded my production servers to SP2.

Nope, you should be good to go.  No issues that I can foresee.

Good luck.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

There were some networking issues when SP2 came out:

Make sure your drivers are all updated. I don't know of any other issues.
What you are doing by updating one of them first is a good strategy.
Thanks

haha, I just remember I held off on SP2 after these issues came up.  On all our new installs we have SP2 as part of the image now.

By default, when SP2 is installed, Scalable Networking Pack (TOE/RSS/etc) is installed. If you install KB 948496 this will disable SNP. On some servers, SNP can cause various networking issues (see the KB for the issues that can occur).
