exchange 2010

I have a new install of Exchange server 2010 (SP1). Client access is the only role that is currently installed. Should I install all the roles that I want to utilize before I apply Service Pack 3 or can I install Service Pack 3 and then install roles?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would install the roles first and then upgrade to SP3. Make sure to install all of the roll-ups as well.

It doesn't really matter. Personally I would update first and then install the extra roles. But that's just me. With just one role to update, that's a lot less to go wrong.
