Exchange 2010 Service Pack 2 is here! Listing some helpful resources.

Download it here: Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 2 (SP2)

Download the standalone help file: Exchange Server 2010 SP2 Help

Note: I get asked this a lot: The SP2 executable can be used to update Exchange 2010 RTM and SP1 (i.e. it includes previous updates). It can also be used for the full installation of an Exchange 2010 SP2 server, you’ll have to install UM files separately, see downloads for the SP2 UM files in this post. It can also be used for the installation of the Exchange Management Tools.
