Windows With an absence of fanfare, but otherwise on schedule, Microsoft opened up its download page for Service Pack 2 of Windows Server 2003, both 32-bit and 64-bit editions. Perhaps most importantly, enterprises won't have to wait until Longhorn to be able to utilize Windows Deployment Services, the company's new image-based system for pre-composed, remote Windows installations.

Wait then wait some more

Every since MS popped out NT SP6a I say wait a couple of months.
Then check forums for reported problems.

Then check any 3rd party software and drivers will actually work with 2003 SP2. You never know...

Then do a full backup, reboot the Server and do a chkdsk. Then add the SP only if that chkdsk turns out ok.

But you'll not know if everything is working for several weeks at least. Servers terribly complex beasts and you can't test all the systems on it...
