Windows Server 2003 SP2 Release Notes

from Microsoft

1. Active Directory

If you are running the initial version of Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) that was available as a download, you will not be able to directly update the computer to Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2). If you do so, the ADAM instances may stop functioning.

2. Internet Explorer

If you have previously installed Internet Explorer 7 on a computer running Windows Server 2003 with SP1 and are now installing the integrated version of Windows Server 2003 SP2 (that is, the full operating system integrated with the service pack), the computer will have Internet Explorer 6 as the default browser in Windows Server 2003 SP2. You will need to reinstall Internet Explorer 7.

3. MMC

If you start certain snap-ins for Microsoft Management Console 3.0 and then subsequently uninstall Windows Server 2003 SP2, you may not be able to start some or all of the snap-ins in Microsoft Management Console 2.0 afterwards. If this occurs, remove all the files in the %APPDATA%\Microsoft\MMC\ folder.

4. Migration

If you use Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT) version 2.0 to migrate Windows 2000 Professional domain accounts between computers that are running Windows Server 2003 SP1 or Windows Server 2003 SP2, you may encounter an "RPC server unavailable" error message.

5. Printing

To avoid interrupting print services, schedule the installation of Windows Server 2003 SP2 for a time when the print spooler will not be in high demand.

6. Scheduled tasks

If you uninstall Windows Server 2003 SP2, scheduled tasks may subsequently fail because of the loss of administrative credentials. To verify that this issue is the cause of tasks failing, check the Task Scheduler log for error 0x8004130f.
