You remember in the first part of the Disney Aladdin movie where the Narrator says "come closer, closer, come closer?"

I really need to tell you something, so you need to come closer.

Now that you are right here where you can really hear me really well....

MAKE SURE YOU MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE APPLYING SERVICE PACK 2!

It is not necessary to be the first one installing ANY service pack.  Always always always always have a planned maintenance window and in this day and age of vmware and hyperV, have your FIRST install be on a virtual box that you've made a snapshot of and all you are doing it for it just to understand the install process when you do it on a real live box.

I installed SP2 on a client's production SBS 2008 with no issues last night.

I tried an intall on SBS 2008 std, but it failed - it asked for SP1 to be installed first!
