  • What is the difference between a power pack and a service pack? My installation is WHS (Service Pack 2) is that the same as power pack 2?

    Service Packs are for the underlying OS (Server 2003).  Power Packs are for WHS.  And no, they are not the same thing.  Power Pack 3 is due out for WHS soon, but the underlying OS will still say Service Pack 2.  Also, FYI, logging into the server desktop for any reason is unsupported (there are tools in there that are part of Server 2003 that can break WHS).
