    HI All,

    We have two Dell poweredge servers. An SBS 2003, and a Server 2003 standard
    (TS in app mode).

    I have to apply SBS 2003 SP1, and Exchange 2003 SP2 to our SBS 2003 server,
    and Windows 2003 Server SP1 to our Windows 2003 standard server.

    I've read the SP1 article on but it doesn't mention
    Exchange SP2? Is that pretty straight forward to do after the SP1 install?

    Is there a prefered order for applying SP1 to the TS server?

  2. Hi Mark,

    You can apply Exchange SP2 in place of Exchange SP1, there's no need to do
    Exchange SP1 first. You can install Exchange SP2 before SBS SP1, or at the
    same time.

    The terminal server can be updated independently of the SBS - before or
    after the SBS - it makes no difference.

    Worked a treat.. except no-one told me ISA 2004 install resets the VPN
    connection limit to 7. :)

    That was fun to diagnose / fix. First you see that only 7 PPTP ports are
    available in Routing and Remote Access.. Change that number to higher,
    restart the service, see that x number of ports are inactive and available,
    but still no more than 7 can connect.

    So, dug around in ISA 2004, and notice it has a VPN limit set at 7 too, so
    change that and apply the change, all is good.

    And ISA also sets the FTP rule to READ ONLY (No uploads). Another pain when
    trying to update the website after installing ISA 2004.

    Difficult to diagnose if you don't know about this option in ISA, as you can
    still connect to FTP sites ok, but get a lot of Error: 550 Access is denied
    when trying to write changes/delete from the FTP site.
