Hi everyone, i would like to load up WSUS SP1 to a box running server2003.  i read the release notes and i seem to have a handle on it, but was wondering if anyone ran across something i should know.  i see it needs IIS 6.0 or later or later
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0
Microsoft Management Console 3.0
Microsoft Report Viewer
SQL Server 2005 SP1 is optional. If a compatible version of SQL Server is not installed already, WSUS 3.0 will install Windows Internal Database.

now where do i find out that i have these running i checked services and wasnt sure.  is there another way?

I read it will fail if some of these aren't running. Should i just try and load WSUS and see what happens?  that is really my question..  will this service mess anything up really bad if i load it?

thank you all :)

Firstly, skip WSUS sp1....you should go straight to the newest version WSUS sp2

Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 <<< you should most likely already have this installed

Microsoft Management Console 3.0

Microsoft Report Viewer 2008


Here's a step by step guide that should greatly help :^)
