Windows Server 2003 SP2 released via Automatic Updates

The service pack includes the customary hotfixes and offers IT managers "out-of-the-box" provisioning via Windows Deployment Services.

Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 was ready in March, but on Tuesday the service pack will be available as an Automatic Update.

To get the SP2 update, IT managers will have to click on the "updates are ready to install" notification, accept the end user license agreement and go through the Welcome screen. Or they can choose to use the SP2 blocker tool to disable delivery via Automatic Updates.
