Small Business Server 2000 Patches


Required Patches – SP1/SP1a

Small Business Server 2000 is based on the Windows 2000 platform, and incorporates Back Office 2000 products such as Exchange 2000 Server, ISA Server 2000, SQL 2000 Server and more. Because of that, virtually all Windows 2000, Exchange 2000, SQL 2000, ISA Server 2000 patches and service packs apply to SBS 2000.

2 versions of Service Pack 1 exist: SP1 and SP1a.

  • Service Pack 1 for SBS 2000 was released in the beginning of August 2002. This service pack includes SP3 for Windows 2000, SP3 for Exchange 2000, plus other add-ons and SBS 2000 patches. If you are currently running Small Business Server 2000 SP1 with Windows 2000 SP3, Microsoft recommends upgrading to Windows 2000 SP4.
  • Service Pack 1a for SBS 2000 contains the same updates as SP1, plus Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 (SP4). Small Business Server 2000 SP1a also differs from SP1 in that it does not include or install the Microsoft virtual machine (VM), which provides support for running Java programs.
