Microsoft Office Server SP2 Bug Fix: License Expiration Notice KB 971620 & other SP2 Issues
Hello All - In case you haven't already run into this there is a slight bug when applying SP2 for Microsoft Office Servers which was released on April 28th.  You will have to re-enter your product license key via the Central Administration UI.  Microsoft has posted a Knowledge Base article about it.  Here's the link:

MS Office Team Blog entry on this subject is here:

Hit this link to see the entire list of SP2 Knowledge Base articles so you can educate yourself before applying any of them.

I've been trolling around and saw some threads with a few problems but it seems to have been relatively trouble free.  I'm in the middle of finishing up some other solutions to be deployed to production so I won't be applying this patch till this development cycle is done.  I don't want to have to take them all through that level of testing again.  One thing at a time makes my life much easier.

Things I've read about so far are:

1.  Project Server gant charts are displaying incorrectly - no solution posted yet
2.  Environment where there were multiple WFE's had problems loading web apps - solution delete web app & recreate with same IIS site and content db.
3.  People picker doesn't show AD accounts - no solutions posted yet

Remember that everyone's environment is different so apply this to your development servers first and test test test!!  That will save you a lot of headaches.  Especially since getting through to Microsoft's Business Critical support for a SharePoint bug is a gauntlet to be sure!

Enjoy!
