I have Exchange Server 2007 and want to apply SP3.  Are there any concerns that I should be aware of?  of course, I don't want to blow up my Exchange server :)

I've read in a few places that I should apply SP2 first.  Other places, didn't agree.

Your thoughts?

busbar, so I could get away with a full OS backup and then launch setup with no issues?  Promise that I won't be awake all weekend repairing my exchange environment? LOL

Exchange SP are always cumulative, thus you can just install the latest one.
To make sure you can go back i would advise to:
- backup your system-state (even ntbackup is fine for that)
- shutdown exchange and copy your store-files manually aside
- restart exchange and do an online backup of your store with ntbackup

if you have time and possibility: make an image of the complete machine :-)

i personally never had a problem with those servicepacks
