Out next Tuesday – Service pack 3 for Companyweb on SBS 2008.

It’s a service pack.  Not mandatory.  It should do a psconfig automatically.  Remember it’s the older version that tries to do the psconfig.  Should being operative here.  It may fail on some boxes.

Bottom line just because Microsoft puts it out on the “other” patch Tuesday, just because it’s installed nicely for them, just because … doesn’t mean you need to install it, nor will it be bulletproof.

To me that’s still the price I pay for on premise.  I control when it gets installed.

    After I installed this update, the company web was inaccessible. I tried to solve this whole weekend, I tried every plausible solution I found on the internet, without any result. I finally recovered our server with an image I made, before the updates. Does anybody have a solution for this? Tanks ..Jo

    Without a log file, or more detail of the error, no.
    If you are a microsoft partner post in the partner forum.
