I have a win2k03 blade server being used as a DNS server. It also serves to monitor the remaining 6 blades in a M1000e enclosure. So it rund CMC and EMC Software. It currently has SP1. I'm afraind to update to SP2 because as I remember from Win2000 server, this meant that certian things may have to be reinstalled. Does this still apply? Do I run the risk of overwriting my installations when I update my server.
Do you have info on how to set up a effective patch management system to keep my server secure?
This question also applies to the remaing blades which have RHEL 5.3. What is the effect of updating/patching on installed software?
