Windows 2003 Service Pack One blues, continued…

Andrew MacNeill – AKSEL Solutions blogs Windows 2003 SP1 problems continue for others as well. “As a self-employed consultant, I’ve got better things to do with my time than troubleshoot server problems.”

Oliver Rist, in Infoworld’s Enterprise Watch column writes “Now Microsoft releases the much-anticipated Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1. SBS 2003 happens to be partially based on Win2K3 code, although much of it also á isn’t. Win2K3 Server SP1 suddenly shows up on your SUS/WSUS update list. You put two and four together, come up with six-point-something, and decide to deploy the patch… Pow! You’ve got problems. A short list includes your fax services failing, your DHCP probably keeling over dead, your Change IP Address tool collapsing in a smoking pile of goo, and any reinstallations of critical components becoming suddenly akin to slamming your forehead into the front grill of a Dodge Ram pickup.”

Sure glad all my servers are running Red Hat and Fedora Core…
