Windows Vista SP1 Guides for IT Professionals

There are some new guides for us to read on Vista's upcoming service pack 1. We haven't taken to applying the service pack beta release to any of our Vista installations yet as we haven't had any time to sit down and go through these documents at this point.

Once we have had a chance to go through the documentation and assess the impact of the service pack, we will start applying the service pack to our lab based systems. If they show promise, we will then acquire a few ShadowProtect images of client workstations to see how they react to the service pack.

Once the service pack formally releases, we will go through the process again to make sure that the changes made between the current beta versions and the actual release version won't cause problems.

We will then wait a few weeks and browse the Web to make sure that others are not having critical issues with the service pack's application.

It pays to be careful when it comes to service packs.
