  • Reinstall SP1 and SP2 after reinstall from RTM

    Exchange was in bad shape, SMTP Connectors where hogging CPU, after try everything, I decided to reinstall exchange.
    Ran setup /reinstall from the CD (RTM), completed ok, everything looks good.
    Current version level is 6.5 Build 6944.4

    Now need to get to Exchange SP2

    SP1 update.exe gives me

    The component "Microsoft Exchange" cannot be assigned the action "Update" because: - You cannot use this edition of Microsoft Exchange Server Service pack Update to update a more recent Version
    Just for kicks
    SP2 update.exe and I get

    The Component "Microsoft Exchange Messaging and Collaboration Services" cannot be assigned the action "Update" because: Service Pack 2 for exchange server 2003 includes an updated version of the Microsoft exchange Intelligent Message Filter. An earlier version of the exchange Intelligent Message Filter has been detected on this system and this earlier version must be uninstalled before applying service pack 2
    (NOTE: I never actually had that earlier version of IMF, just the one in SP2)

    This server is 500 miles away.....

    There are obviously traces of Exchange 2003 SP2 still on the system somewhere.
    That also means the IMF v1 must still be there somewhere as well. There are various manual removal instructions for that update around - my preferred method is to reinstall the hotfix and then remove it again, if there is a copy of it. Otherwise it is the manual removal method.

      Thanks Simon,
      I could not find any hotfix to install, however I received manual instructions on how to remove IMF traces. I am installing SP2 as we speak!
      YAY.

      Since those instructions have a big fat disclaimer at the bottom I cannot post them directly. Unless I find them somewhere else as well......
