Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1: Install Update #1

What ever happened to double clicking on an service pack and it just works?  I have had a hell of a time installing this in my lab, and I thought I should share some of my issues and fixes with the world at large.

NB: These are from my Test Lab and not production.  My test lab is running on a VMware ESX server (yeah, yeah I know, not supported!)  For any fixes I have found, it is down to you if you want to apply them, don’t come crying to me if they mess something up!

First the easy ones:

  • Got Forefront Security for Exchange Server. You need to upgrade it to Forefront Security for Exchange Server with Service Pack 1
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=68589
  • When you run Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) on Windows Server 2003 or earlier versions of the operating system, we recommend that you install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1). If you cannot install .NET Framework 2.0 SP1, install hotfix Microsoft Knowledge Base article 942027 from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=101219.

Now the interesting ones:
