Windows Serviceability is pleased to announce the release of the Release Candidate (build 2825) of Service Pack 2 for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.
This build contains:

Roll up of hotfixes released to date
Roll up of security updates released to date
Fixes for bugs reported by Beta customers and other known issues on previous Service Pack 2 builds
This build should be used for full deployment purposes, including pre-production testing or general compatibility testing. In order to have a stable test environment we strongly recommend un-installation of any previous SP2 builds from your machines before installing build 2825.
If you previously installed an integrated build of SP2, you cannot upgrade your system to build 2825 with this refresh; you will need to re-install a released version (RTM, SP1, or R2) of Windows Server 2003 before upgrading to build 2825. Go to https://connect.microsoft.com/content/c ... entID=1799 to find an evaluation copy of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1.
Release notes for this build can be found at https://connect.microsoft.com/content/c ... &SiteID=98.
With SP2, Windows Server 2003 x64 Editions will start supporting 9 new languages: Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese (Brazilian). Russian, and Spanish. With RC, Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition is available in German for the first time.
Additionally, with RC, a MUI servicing package is available, which is specific to 3 components (Microsoft Management Console (MMC) 3.0, Windows Deployment Services and Microsoft File Server Management). This is not a re-release of the Windows Server 2003 MUI Pack. This MUI servicing pack is designed to increase the compatibility between MUI and localized languages for these 3 components. More information about this pack can be found at https://connect.microsoft.com/content/c ... &SiteID=98.
The list of releases is as follows:
x86:

- Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 ISO image
- SP2 32-bit x86 standalone updates
- SP2 Standalone x86 check build (for debugging)
- Windows Server 2003, Web Editions with SP2 (32-bit x86)
- Windows Server 2003 R2, Standard Editions with SP2 (32-bit x86)
- Windows Server 2003 R2, Enterprise Editions with SP2 (32-bit x86)
- Windows Server 2003 R2, Datacenter Editions with SP2 (32-bit x86)

x64:

- Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 for x64 Editions ISO Image
- SP2 x64 standalone update

- Windows Server 2003 R2, Enterprise x64 Edition with SP2
- Windows Server 2003 R2, Datacenter x64 Edition with SP2

- Windows Server 2003, Datacenter with SP2 for Itanium-based Systems

I've installed the sp2 yet. I've opened the sp2 with 7Zip and took a look into the update.inf :?

And have you checked the version of some crucial system files like NTOSKRNL.EXE? These files' versions often tell the real build of a service pack. But I'm going to install it soon and check it.

I jut checked it, and they say only the stand-alone .exe file for SP2 is the wrong build, but the Update CD .iso and all the integrated ISOs are made with the correect build if I understood correctly. I will download an integrated build and verify.

Yes. I have noticed that so far, not all integrated builds are online. I've seen Standard x86/x64, Enterprise x86/64 and maybe some build of Datacenter, too. But no Web Edition. I'm downloading Standard x86 ATM...

edit The integrated builds are OK :)
