Exchange 2007 SP3: Easier service pack with wrinkles

Exchange 2007 SP3 is now available.  Unlike SP2, there is no wrapper needed to install it under SBS 2008.

However, you may see a few wrinkles in the update process.  You will need to stop the Windows SBS Manager (datacollectorsvc) and, if you have File Server Resource Manager installed, srmsvc.  In Powershell do:

stop-service datacollectorsvc

stop-service srmsvc

The service pack setup should then proceed normally.  It takes about a half-hour, and to be safe you should reboot the server after the update completes.
