For those of you running ‘normal’ Windows 2003, you can start testing on the SP 1 as it just ‘RTM’d….

For those of us on SBS 2003 remember

In addition, Microsoft is announcing that Windows Small Business Server 2003 Service Pack 1 will also be available to customers within 60 days.

I’m putting that in Bold and in Color because I missed reading it the first time.  [ummm…sorry Jerry!… I tell ya going blind]

So folks… ours isn’t ready yet.  Hang tight just a little longer.

Download details: Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1:

Install Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) to help secure your server and to better defend against hackers. Windows Server 2003 SP1 enhances security infrastructure by providing new security tools such as Security Configuration Wizard, which helps secure your server for role-based operations, improves defense-in-depth with Data Execution Protection, and provides a safe and secure first-boot scenario with Post-setup Security Update Wizard. Windows Server 2003 SP1 assists IT professionals in securing their server infrastructure and provides enhanced manageability and control for Windows Server 2003 users.

Which includes
Security Configuration Wizard for Windows Server 2003:
This is actually a cool tool but we don’t need to run it on our SBS 2003 boxes as we’re very well tweaked just as we are right now.  Again for those on normal server, take a look at it.
