Updating from sp2 to sp3 Livesexchart
Being somewhat of a “newbie” to the SBS environment I thought it best to OVER research an Exchange 2010 SP1 to SP3 upgrade followed by Rollup 6 (KB2936871) that I was planning to perform.
I didn’t expect to come across so many issues that people had experienced but I was thankful for information as it kept me ahead of the game in knowing what to watch out for.
To continue, verify that the file exists, and either grant administrator permissions to the account currently running Setup or log in with an administrator account. Hate to answer my own question, but I had to manually un-install Client Tools, re-install them using SQL Server 2005 setup, and THEN apply the updates.
As we all know Microsoft has released the final version of Windows XP SP3 to public and its available via Automatic Updates, Windows Updates and Downloads Center.
The latest service packs for other versions of Microsoft Windows include Windows Vista SP2, Windows XP SP3, and Windows 2000 SP4.Microsoft has released Service Pack 3 for Exchange Server 2010.This is a significant release that delivers some key functionality to customers such as support for Windows Server 2012, support for co-existence with Exchange Server 2013 CU1, and general bug fixes and security updates.At the time of this writing there are some points in the various release notes that aren't correct or fully updated yet that Microsoft are still working on or that are worth some clarification: You should also plan to update any management tools installations you have on admin workstations or servers, and also check your third party applications that integrate with Exchange in case they also need updated management tools.I'm going to walk through the upgrade process in some more detail next, and also provide some general guidance afterwards about the Service Pack 3 installation steps as well as what to expect in terms of timing and service interruptions.
Updating is completely automatic via Windows Update.
