    I also want to disable (by default) the Microsoft FAX

    (we are usin an alternative fax product)

    Our server is setup to apply SP2
    We have an application that dosen't like SP2

    Also, Is it possible to change the setup so NO service pack is applied
    We'll setup SP1 or SP2 as necessary - don't want client setup to play with

  2. From the Server Management section, click on Client Computers. You will see
    2 links on the right. First, click on Set Up Client Applications. You will
    see a list of applications here. Add or remove whatever you want. You can
    remove the service packs from here too. Then you will need to click on
    Assign Applications to Client Computers.

    OS Service packs can't be removed !

    Is this fixed so I have to apply latest sp !??

  4. I never noticed that it doesn't allow you to remove this. I guess I never
    had the need to do it. Anyway, I would imagine that you could remove the
    service pack from the ClientApps directory.

  5. XP SP1 isn't really an 'option', it's a core OS update you need. XP SP2
    probably is in the same category, or will be soon, but as SBS 2k3 was
    released prior to SP2 you have a grace period. I'd suggest getting XP sp2 on
    at least on workstation, so that you can work on resolving any issues you
    have in your environment, and then roll it out to the entire network. This
    should be a priority.

    Application people are saying around April...
    App work fine on SP1.
    The application people have identified the problems and are updating the
    but with Testing etc. we are looking at April 05

    Server insists on SP2

    I've tried joining Domain manually in the past but have had various issues

  7. You're saying the SBS is pushing XP SP2, non de-selectable?. If that's the
    case, that will have been configured after the fact and can probably be

    So I wonder, with SP2 will we have to assign the app to the user's desktop,
    ***kinda lame*** to make a user install any app let alone a SP. Any way to
    do this automatically. That used to be what "assiging an app was all about.
