We are planning to install sp1 on our Exchange 2003 server. Any advice on what to watch out for or any issues?

FYI, that exchange has IIS and Veritas backup.

Appreciate the help,
Douglas

Remember you need to apply this HotFix before you even can install SP1, also remember to read the Exchange 2003 SP1 Release Notes (especially the OMA part).

Also remember to take a full on-line backup before applying the SP.

In the SP1 Release notes, they make mention of "A full directory sercie to metabase replication is required after upgrading to Exchange 2003 SP1"

I have trolled around, and searched MS Technet etc. but can't find any information on how to do this, but can only guess I need to either restart the Service MSExchangeAL, or just reboot the server. How do I do this?

Thanks,

A DS2MB update is done every 15 minute or during a reboot, but depeding on the size of your environment this can take quite some time.

I will perform a reboot.

I did quite a bit of DS2MB hunting as well, but the most I found was a couple of "honourable mentions" in the Exchange 2003 SDK, and the Active Directory Tech notes. They really didn't shed a whole lot of light on the situation!

Thanks,
