We have a server running Windows 2003 ... This server is also our Exchange 2003 Server.
I have Service Pack 2 update waiting to be installed but I've always been afraid to install it. I haven't installed it because I'm not 100% familiar with Exchange 2003 and how it operates.
I also have 2 other servers (1. Domain & File server 2. SQL and Veritas Backup), so I have daily backups to hard drive and tape.
My concern is whether I need to do something with the Exchange server before I start the Update. Do I need to shutdown the Exchange or something like that?
I guess I'm just worried that if something happens with the update to mess up the Exchange system, then I'd have a 40 people gripeing about email and it would be over my head to fix it.
Any recommendations or should I just run it?
