Official Windows Server 2003 SP1 on Windows Small Business Server 2003 response

There has been quite a few questions regarding Windows Server 2003 SP1 and
it's support on Windows Small Business Server 2003: I hope this post will
clear up any of the confusion here. As always, if you have immediate
questions, please feel free to ask them here and I will attempt to answer
your questions as best I can.



Windows Server 2003 SP1 is supported on Windows Small Business Server 2003,
but there are some known integration issues that are resolved in the Small
Business Server SP1 (available within the next 60 days). With the Windows
Server SP1 installed, you may encounter the known issues and our
recommendation is to:

a) Be patient with the issue and wait for Windows Small Business Server
2003 SP1

b) Un-install Windows Server 2003 SP1, and wait for Windows Small
Business Server 2003 SP1, which includes Windows Server SP1



Furthermore, a KB Article will be written to further address these issues,
and I will follow up when the link to the KB when it is available.



In the mean time here is the short list of the known issues:

- Remote Access Wizard hangs when creating the connection manager
package

- Small Business Server Change IP tool will fail

o Change IP tool will continue to fail after un-install of WS SP1

o Workaround: Remove WS SP1, disable DHCP, re-run CEICW

- Power Users retain SharePoint Administration privileges even
after the role is changed to Reader

- Re-Install of Exchange fails

- Re-Install of Intranet component fails

- Fax Services won't start and the Fax Configuration Wizard cannot
be run after un-installing Windows Server SP1

- DHCP service may not start after a restore



Please let me know if you have any further questions

To follow up on this thread, I wanted to point you to the recently published
article on the Microsoft.com website that provides you with top known
issues, fixes and work arounds to the known issues with Windows Server SP1

You can expect a KB article and an update to the SBS FAQ in the early part
of next week, but they will simply reference this page.
