Dell Servers can now take Windows 2003 SP1

If you’re running Windows Server 2003 on Dell machines, you may know (or should) that Service Pack 1 breaks Dell OpenManage 4.3.   This also applies to SBS 2003 SP1.

Dell has (finally!) released OpenManage 4.4.

UPDATE:  You may have discovered this by now, but when you install OM, Dell will want you to update your RAID controller drivers <i>and</i> the firmware too.  It’s normal (and good!) practice for me to update all the drivers and firmware before a service pack, but I never got the notification from Dell about the drivers.  Oops.
