Should I install SP2 for SBS 2003?
Posted on 2011-02-25
Sorry if this seems like a dumb question:
I have a customer that is running SBS 2003, and the system shows Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server, Service Pack 1.
Lately I have noticed the odd crash (once every few weeks, and in the error logs, for a day or so before the crash (hang, screen freezes), there are occasional VSS errors with:
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error WaitForMultipleObjects(1,00639D70,1,120000) == 0x00000102. hr = 0x8000ffff.
In addition to the VSS errors, I have noticed that in browsing the drives on the system, there are occasional huge delays (up to a minute or so) in opening random folder, with the hard disk light on solid, but no errors in the event viewer. There are two RAID1 mirrored HDs for the system drive (500GB) and two RAID1 drives (1.5TB) for the data drive.
Most of the VSS errors occur around 8:40pm, a minute or two after the successful completion of the System State using NTBackup.
I see the SP2 fixes some VSS issues. I'm going to install SP2 this weekend unless someone gives me a good reason not to.
Any advice or comments?
