    Re: Windows 2003 SP2

    I just applied it to my WSUS server and there are no initial differences apart from a security wizard guide on the desktop.
    Microsoft have given their top 10 reasons to upgrade but lots of them I had already (WDS, MMC3) http://www.microsoft.com/technet/win...p-reasons.mspx
    Hopefully the wireless (WPA2) additions will help fix my laptop trolley woes.

    Re: Windows 2003 SP2

    you can't install any other security patches until the machine has been patched with SP2
    Ughh..either I'm reading this the wrong way or that's a bit of a step change. Where's the MS statement on SP2 being a prerequisite for future sec-fixes?

    Or are you just saying the longer you leave off applying SP2 the more it is likely to regress later?

    Re: Windows 2003 SP2

    Yes it did come with WSUS.

    We had an issue where after the SP2 install we could not use RIS, we found out that we had to run the WDS mmc for the first time to configure it (easy wizard) then RIS worked fine.

    We only found out by chance after trying to manually start the binlsvc.
