Windows Server 2003 gets second update

Service Pack 2 for OS includes bug patches, enhancements to functions ranging from network performance to wireless security.

Microsoft has quietly released a second service pack for its popular Windows Server 2003 operating system. The hefty update--at least 350 megabytes, depending on the processor architecture--includes a large number of bug fixes. Service Pack 2, or SP2, for Windows Server 2003 is also designed to enhance network performance, remote installation, IPSec manageability, Microsoft Management Console support, virtualization, SQL Server performance and wireless security.

Microsoft has also released a "Hotfix Scan Tool" intended to be used with SP2 deployment. The software is designed to scan for updates that could potentially regress to their unpatched state after SP2 is installed.
