All of our windows firewalls are off by group policy. I have read that the windows 2003 sp 2 turns it on anyway. Is this true and if so how can I prevent it? Or do I need to do the updates offline and turn it off manually?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

After manually turn off the firewall, windows 2003 never turn on it automatically on next boot. But u must configure it properly.
