Can I run a Hotfix for MS Server 2008 RS on MS Server 2008


I am having issues described here:

I am running MS 2008 Standard SP2. Running as TS. This machine is a VM using VMware 5.1.

KB is for MS 2008 SP1.

Can I request this hotfix and apply to my system?

"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.

You can, you just select your platform, enter your email address, and you will receive it shortly after.
As always, backup your server (Snapshot) prior to implementing any changes for the "just in case" scenarios
