How to Install Windows Small Business Server 2003 Service Pack 1

To successfully install Windows Small Business Server 2003 Service Pack 1, you must install all five updates listed in these instructions. Additionally, the updates must be installed in the sequence listed. To install each update, click the corresponding link on the Setup page, and then follow the instructions on the screen.

Restart the computer when you are prompted to do so.

noteNote
To install these updates, you must be logged on as an Administrator or as a member of the Domain Admins security group.

noteNote
If one or more of the listed updates is already installed, you can skip to the next step.

noteNote
It can take up to two hours to install these updates completely. Because your input is required during the installation process, be sure to schedule enough time to complete all of the steps. If you are performing other tasks while Setup is running, be sure to check back often to determine whether your input is needed.

    noteNote
    If the Repair or Reinstall Microsoft SharePoint Services 2.0 page appears, it indicates that this update has already been installed on the server. It is not necessary to repair or reinstall the update. Click Cancel, and then proceed with the next instruction.

If you used the Set Up Client Applications Wizard to add to the list of applications that can be deployed to client computers, the additional applications are removed from the list when you upgrade to Windows SBS SP1. To resolve this issue, run the Set Up Client Applications Wizard and add the applications to the list again.

noteNote
If you used the Monitoring Configuration Wizard to configure status reports or usage reports before applying Windows SBS SP1, ensure that the SQLAgent$SBSMONITORING service Startup Type is set to Automatic, and that the service is started.

To do so, click Start, click Run, and then type Services.msc. Right-click SQLAgent$SBSMONITORING, and then click Properties. On the General tab, select Automatic for the Startup Type. If the SQLAgent$SBSMONITORING service is not started, click Start.
