Deploying Windows Server 2003 SP1 with SMS

Published : August 1, 2005

This document provides detailed steps on how to prepare Windows Server 2003 SP1 files for deployment, create queries to identify SMS clients ready for the Windows Server 2003 SP1 upgrade, deploy the Windows Server 2003 SP1 upgrade to your SMS clients, and verify that the SMS clients successfully upgraded from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2003 SP1.

Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 provides convenient, comprehensive access to the latest updates, enhancements, and new features for Windows Server 2003. Each of these components allows customers to better leverage the enhanced security, reliability, and performance of Windows Server 2003.

Microsoft recommends that a corporate update management solution, such as Systems Management Server 2003 or Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), is used as a best-practice approach for implementing a managed rollout of Windows Server 2003 SP1. This document details the steps necessary to test a deployment of Windows Server 2003 SP1 using SMS. While some procedures in this document focus specifically on SMS 2003 Advanced Clients, most procedures apply to both SMS 2003 Legacy Clients and SMS 2.0.

Note

Windows Server 2003 SP1 is supported by SMS 2.0 SP4 and SMS 2.0 SP5.

This document assumes that you have an understanding of SMS and that you have a working knowledge of software distribution. Additionally, it assumes that your SMS infrastructure is established or that you will establish an SMS infrastructure before you deploy Windows Server 2003 SP1.

Deploying Windows Server 2003 SP1 Using SMS

The following topics in this section provide detailed information about how to deploy Windows Server 2003 SP1 using SMS:

  • How to Prepare Windows Server 2003 SP1 Files

  • How to Identify and Prepare SMS Clients That Are Ready for Windows Server 2003 SP1

  • How to Deploy Windows Server 2003 SP1 to SMS Clients

  • How to Verify Upgrade Success with SMS

The procedures in this section are primarily focused on using SMS 2003 for the Windows Server 2003 SP1 deployment, but SMS 2.0 with SP4 or SP5 can also be used. Steps specific to SMS 2003 or SMS 2.0 are identified within each procedure.

Important

Windows Server 2003 SP1 deployment in SMS 2.0 will not succeed unless the SMS 2.0 SP4 or SP5 version is installed.

How to Prepare Windows Server 2003 SP1 Files

Before you can deploy Windows Server 2003 SP1, you must perform the following procedures on the primary site server.

To obtain and extract the Windows Server 2003 SP1 source files
  1. Create a folder named WS2K3SP1 on the C: Drive.

  2. Copy the Windows Server 2003 SP1 source file (WindowsServer2003-KB889101-SP1-x86-ENU.exe) to the C:\WS2K3SP1 folder by downloading it from the Microsoft Download Center or by using the file from the Windows Server 2003 SP1 CD. This CD is available from Microsoft and can be ordered from the Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 on CD Web page.

    Note

    The Windows Server 2003 SP1 file is approximately 329 MB in size.

  3. At a command prompt, type WindowsServer2003-KB889101-SP1-x86-ENU.exe /x from the C:\WS2KSP1 folder and then press ENTER.

  4. Type C:\WS2K3SP1 in the Choose Directory For Extracted Files text box, or browse to this folder by clicking Browse. All Windows Server 2003 SP1 source files are extracted to C:\WS2K3SP1\I386. The \I386 folder is created when the file is extracted.

To obtain the Windows Server 2003 SP1 package definition file
  1. Go to the Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 SMS Files Web page on the Microsoft Download Center.

  2. Download the SRSP1sms.exe file to the C:\WS2K3SP1 folder.

  3. Open SRSSP1sms.exe, and extract the SRSSP1.sms file to the C:\WS2K3SP1 folder.

How to Identify and Prepare SMS Clients That Are Ready for Windows Server 2003 SP1

The procedures included in this section enable you to identify and prepare SMS clients that are ready for the Windows Server 2003 SP1 upgrade.

The following procedure creates a Managed Object Format (MOF) file that is used to create an SMS 2003 sample query that identifies SMS Advanced Client computers with sufficient hardware to support an upgrade to Windows Server 2003 SP1. You will use the query in subsequent steps as a membership rule for a collection of computers that receive the Windows Server 2003 SP1 advertisement.

Note

If you do not use this query, you could potentially advertise Windows Server 2003 SP1 to computers that cannot successfully install it, resulting in a failed deployment. However, you can also create your own query using different criteria to identify computers that you can upgrade to Windows Server 2003 SP1.

To create the WS2K3SP1.mof query file
  1. Copy the following code and paste it into Notepad.

    };
    // ***** End *****
  2. Save the file in the C:\WS2K3SP1\ folder with the file name WS2K3SP1.mof.

The next procedure creates a MOF file that is used to create an SMS 2003 query to identify SMS Advanced Client computers that do not meet the minimum requirements for the Windows Server 2003 SP1 installation.

The sample query will find all systems that are running Windows Server 2003 but have limited disk space or have a different operating system language than English. You can create your own query using different criteria that identify computers that are not ready to upgrade to Windows Server 2003 SP1.

To create the WS2K3SP1_Fail.mof query file
  1. Copy the following code and paste it into Notepad.

How to Run the Upgrade Advertisement

In the following procedures, you ensure that the advertised program for the Microsoft Windows 2003 SP1 upgrade runs on the Advanced Client computer. By doing so, you verify that the processes that you have already completed on the site server have been successful. You also verify that your client computer has been upgraded to Windows Server 2003 SP1.

In a production environment, you would not normally need to visit individual client computers to initiate discovery data collection or hardware inventory because these functions are normally scheduled to run on a recurring basis.

Complete the following procedure on an SMS 2003 Advanced Client running Windows Server 2003.

Note

For SMS 2.0, you can use the Advertised Program Monitor to view the state of the advertised program. SMS 2.0 clients check for and run the advertised program according to the schedule of the Advertised Programs Client Agent. When a program is scheduled to run on an SMS 2.0 client, the Advertised Program Countdown dialog box appears, indicating that a program is scheduled to run.

To manually run the upgrade program from the Advanced Client
  1. Log on to the client computer.

  2. In Control Panel, start Systems Management and then click the Actions tab.
