99% chance they've fixed the issue they introduced with multiple NICs and the serial number server freaking out because it sees the serial number on 2 different interfaces. I've been running on 1 NIC since 10.5.8 came out because of this foolishness.

You didn't catch this in your test environment before you rolled it into production?

You're assuming that we have the money for a test environment. At my enterprise level, "Apple" & "Mac" are still dirty words.

Edit: Interesting side note, it doesn't show up as an available patch for me. :)

Yep:

Still doesn't show up for me either. I have been having a little bit of slow weirdness with Time Machine backups over the network. May have to do a manual download.

A lot of small businesses don't have the resources for a test environment either. That's partly why we use Macs, because it "just works", right? I just hope that every business no matter what their resources evaluates what the acceptable risk is and at the very least makes a backup of their data before any configuration changes. Where I work, the data on the computers is essential, but an hour or two of downtime would just irritate people.

I ended up downloading the combo update and installing it.

Just enabled my second NIC and so far, so good.
