    Has anyone else installed this (on a real system) yet? Was it fundamentally boring or were there issues?

    You Had Me At EHLO... : Exchange Server 2007 SP2 and Windows Server 2008 R2
    It's totally unsupported for install on 2008 R2. If you want to hack it and force it to install then that's your call but if your doing it in a production environment and it totally screws up, expect MS to laugh at you if you require help. I'm pretty bleeding edge and have forced software to run on unsupported OS's before, but exchange is a whole different kettle of fish. I wouldn't even bother.

    They will however support it on a 2008 R2 domain, but the underlying OS on your exchange server must be 2003 or 2008.

    Back on topic tho, does anyone know if SP2 for exchange breaks backup exec at all?

    The setup log was clean, Exchange Best Practises Analyser shows no issues and windows event logs are happy.
    It was boring and uneventful, which is how I like patching to be.

    I upgraded mine in a live enviroment with no problems. Remember, if like me you have Forefront protection 2010 for exchange server, you need to stop the forefront services first before applying the service pack.
