    Hi all

    Is their a list of updates which are prudent/best practice to apply before
    installing the premium technologies disc?

    At the moment I have managed to get to the base install and have the network
    and clients moved over to SBS2003 so the server is actually in a working
    enviroment now. Mail, internet, OWA, fax, backup all fine.

    I know that Exchange SP's should be OK? But what about anything else that
    crops up in WUS (except W2003 Sp2).

    On the past few attempts I had at installing the premium technologies discs
    all the services basically stopped. I cannot remember this happening with the
    SBS2003 practice installs i did last year, but R2 seems to be a bit different.

    Its my intention to grab a few disc images of the drives this time so I can
    roll back if it goes south again once the premium tech discs are applied.

    Just wanting to make sure the base install is solid first

    Any advice appreciated.

    BR, John

    Just a heads up. There have been a couple of problems reported with WSUS V3
    upgrades on SBS already. Also it should be noted that MS plans to release
    WSUS V3 as a WSUS upgrade on May 23rd. If you have the default WSUS
    configuration, WSUS will upgrade (or attempt to) itself to V3.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Ill drop in the ones that are used by the server and drop the rest that
    appear, not that media related features are needed on a server anyway I
    guess .. ;-)
