When you remove a Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 Management Point hotfix from an SMS 2003 site server, the hotfix files may not be replaced with earlier versions of the same files. When this problem occurs, the SMS 2003 management point computer cannot be rolled back to a previous state.
This problem occurs when the previous file versions are older than the SMS 2003 management point hotfix files, and the previous files cannot overwrite the newer hotfix files. In this case, the previous files are only reinstalled when the destination file is older or missing.
