One thing that bit us early with Windows 2003 SP2 was the a "Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start" issue.  This is a biggie IMHO.  It requires doing one little prep before running SP2.  If you do not do this prep, a whole slew of services will refuse to start and you will be left with a comatose server till you do the fix described here:

Best regards

Hello All,
We are planning to deploy Windows 2003 (Enterprise Edition) SP2 in our Exchange environment which has got both Clusters and Non Clusters.
People who have already updated with SP2.... Did you find any issues? Please share your experiance on the same.
I could see some articles with issues on SNP, IE7 & ESM, MBSA 2 scan, and so on.

Regards... Maha
