Don’t know what that is? 


That’s the unique SBS 2003 GUID code for the SBS suite.  Do a search in the registry and you’ll find it in a couple of places.


I’m sure you know you have SBS 2003.  You are an SBSer right?  But right now Windows Update doesn’t know you are a SBS box.  It thinks you are a Windows 2003 box.  The good news is that it’s not coming down on Autoupdate [thank goodness for that], but the bad news is if you run Windows Update on a SBS box it will indicate that you need this.  You don’t.  Also watch out for SUS and make sure that the service pack isn’t approved.





UPDATE – 4/2/2005 – Windows update no longer offers up SP1 to SBS boxes.   Thank you Microsoft for responding to our concerns.  And sorry too to the WU team.. I know you know what SBS is but you know us gals in the heat of the moment..stuff pops out.  Thank you for your quick action and response.





Let me say this loudly


IF YOU ARE RUNNING SBS 2003 WAIT FOR OUR SBS 2003 SP1  – don’t install this when it shows up on Windows update like this:



Again, do not install this patch from Windows Update.





UPDATE – 4/2/2005 – Windows update no longer offers up SP1 to SBS boxes.   Thank you Microsoft for responding to our concerns. 




Note: Customers who have Automatic Updates enabled with automatic
download should be aware that Windows Server 2003 SP1 will be made
available through Automatic Updates (AU) as a High Priority update in
July 2005.

    Boy am I glad for your blog today! I was in a conference all day yesterday but saw several news stories about the new SP. I came back to the office today ready to test it and hopefully install it, but thought I’d check to make sure it was SBS compatible. Your blog was my first stop. Phew! Only 60 days to wait …
