Yes you can install service pack 1 without installing service pack 2.
Still before installing it, backup the exchange server cause it is
damaged or it goes down you can restore it to it's proper state.

Hi All,

Being new to Exchange 2000 I have asked several questions here and
you'all have responded nicely.  Well, I have another.  :-)
I inherited this site and the Exchange 2000 has had a few "patches"
applied but it does NOT have SP1 or SP2 applied.  
My first question is:  Is there any reason why I SHOULDN'T applies
these?  I have searched around a bit and found people having some
problems after applying these... especially SP2.  
My second question is:  Since I am so far behind can I just apply SP2
and skip SP1?

Being so new I have been hesitant to apply these for fear of causing
Exchange to not work and me not being able to fix it.  What precautions
should I take before applying?

Thanks so much,
