Hi,

I'm in the process of planning the upgrade of our Exchange 2007 Server to Service Pack 2.  As I don't have a development environment to test the installation, i'm working on a plan for the upgrade from Microsoft articles and other forums.

But I just wanted to know, if I have to pull out of the installation or roll back, what implications does this have on the Schema & Active Directory updates?  Will they be rolled back as well???

Thanks

There are schema changes for Exchange SP2, you also cannot roll it back, once you have installed it.

The Exchange Service Packs are complete installs and the only way to remove it would be to remove Exchange from the server completely.

You should also be looking to upgrade to Exchange 2007 SP3 not SP2, there are a number of bugs released in SP2 that have been resolved in SP3
