    Re: Local HOSTS file ignored on a domain

    Hi all,

    Has anyone experienced any trouble with SP1 on 2003. Our LEA has told us to wait a bit so they can properly test it and see what flaws and bugs it brings.

    A lot of us have put in on with no problems at all. Some people are even claiming it's running alot faster as a result.

    Hi Mano and welcome

    Not that I have come across but if you use any server company tools i.e. Insight Manager for HP Servers for example, you'll need to update the software/util etc

    Check with the server site beforehand (just in case) as some "may" need a bios update or similar first.

    As far as usage and other problems, I dont think so - I haven't updates our SIMS .net server yet so I dont know if it would cause any problems, but there has been updates/patches to SIMS .net since the 2k3 SP1 release so I imagine that there wont be a problem with that.

    I would say the firewall addition may cause a problem - depending on the setup - but if you are installing it in 2003, then it doesn't turn on. It will only be on by default if you have slipstreamed it into the 2003 CD

    Cheers,
    N.
