We are currently running Exchange 2010 SP2 on Windows 2008 R2 Ent Servers.  I want to install Windows 2008 R2 SP1 on all of the Exchange 2010 SP2 Servers. Are there any known issues with this upgrade?

So you want to install service pack 1.. You should already have it via windows update, other than it requires a reboot... Why are you not keeping your servers up to date with windows updates?

you should be fine
i have a 2008 R2 SP1 server running exchange 2010 SP3 and no issues
i would suggest do one server and see how it behaves; make sure no new errors and warnings start appearing in the event logs.  after maybe a week or so, do the other servers one at a time

No issues, MS actually recommends SP1 to be installed.
