There seems to be some issues with Exchange service pack 4
for Exchange 5.5 and Windows 2000 service pack 4 with an
Exchange 5.5 server running on Windows 2000. What I
observed is that when I installed the Exchange service
pack 4 with Exchange 5.5 running on Windows 2000, I
received an error involving services.exe not being
updated. Since I wanted to use this server for disaster
recovery for my production Exchange 5.5 server in an
Windows NT 4 environment, I realized that when I attempted
to start Exchange services after restoring the IS to this
non-production server, the Information Store service would
not start. I don't believe that Exchange 5.5 service pack
4 should be used on an Exchange 5.5/Windows 2000 server.
Has anyone run into the identical problem with SP4 for
Exchange on an W2K server?
