    Well it kills the old RIS server

    which ment Norton Ghost wouldn't work over the network.

    but I have installed it on all the other units and have no problems with SIMS. FMS, Exchange, Kalidos, RANGER

    I had it kill Exchange 2003, and it did so 3 more time when I tried to do a fresh re-install and recovery. I have no idea why, but I am not bothering with it on my Exchange box anymore.

    No troubles at all for me with SP2 for this, but SP3 for ISA is a PITA, its screwed up the MMC Snap-in for ISA, and WSUS 3.0 is refusing to install giving various errors that all the web fixes dont't help with.

    I've got it installed on mine with SP2 on it ok. Can't remember which way around I did it, but of course unless you install the MS report viewer, MMC 3.0, etc etc., it wont install either way.

    Have you tried uninstalling the service pack, installing WSUS 3.0, and then putting the service pack back on again?

    I have an issue with intel teamed NIC's on Dell servers. There are drivers available now that resolve this.

    Its got them on it, I think I will make a new thread about it and post the full log file for all to poke at and see what help anyone can be, it has been suggested to me that LogMeIn is the issue as it latches on to Terminal Services stuff in Windows (Is that correct? I don't know but was suggested to me) as you cannot put it on TS boxes, so Logmein may have to come off to put WSUS3 on then put Logmein back on afterwards.
