Random Stuff That Probably Only Apply To Me...

Blocking Windows Server 2003 SP1

Since it has been recommended by the ADS-admins that no one upgrade to Windows Server 2003 SP1 until full testing has been completed by the ADS-admins, may I recommend that those running Server 2003 within ADS run this toolkit against their servers. Microsoft appears that they will be forcing SP1 updates beginning 26 July. Installing this toolkit will block the install until 30 March 2006, a year after the update was released. The toolkit also includes an ADM file which could be used to block all the servers within your OU from installing the patch or used by the ADS-admins to block it within the entire Active Directory structure.

BTW, any news or updates when testing will be completed? I always get a little nervous when my servers aren't fully up to date...
