Hybrid Server Requires W2K8R2 with SP1

This question is answered This question is answered

Hi Guys


I am about to implement a Hybrid Server. I am using my current standalone Exchange Server as the Hybrid Server. I upgraded to Exchange 2010 SP2 RU1. But I just realized by OS is W2k8R2 no SP1. Is SP1 a requirement on the OS?


The Exchange Deployment Assistant stated that SP 1 is a requirement on the OS, however, Technet stated that no SP 1 is required.


Should I put SP1 on the OS??? I'm trying to minimize risks. If SP1 is really not needed, then I won't bother to put it
