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:

http://blogs.technet.com/office_sustained_engineering/archive/2009/04/23/service-pack-2-for-the-2007-microsoft-office-system-available-today.aspx 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!
