Need to install server 2003 sp2 and exchange 2003 sp2 on my active/passive backend cluster, is there anything I need to worry about? Figure I'll update server sp2 first then Exchange sp2. On front end servers first then backend cluster. Sound right?

Yes, install the front end servers first. Install the OS first as well. When you get to the clusters install OS on both nodes, then add exchange to one node, fail the cluster over and install on the now inactive node. There are exchange services which you <a href=”http://www.tech-faq.com/disabling-services-and-protocol-logging-on-exchange-2003-servers.shtml”>disable on the front end servers</a> to help with performance.
