  • Hi Sankar,

    For patching the SharePoint Environment with higher version of Service pack or mandatory Hot Fix , you must have a recovery plan before installing the Sp2/3 , Please apply the following

    1- install the service pack 2/3 on the development environment to make sure that everything will be stable after patching the environment.especially if you have customization in your environment. 
    2- Do the same on your quality environment as well for the same reason I've mentioned in the step 1.
    3- let's go to the most critical step, applying the patch on the production environment , you must take latest backup of all the SharePoint databases in the environment , also take a snapshot of all VMs of your SP environment .
    4- download WSS 3.0 Sp3 64-bit , and install it on the server , if you have multiple servers in your farm , install wss3.0 sp3 on all the servers .but don't run configuration wizard until completing the installation of MOSS 2007 SP3 also on all servers first.
    5- download SharePoint 2007 SP3 - 64bit and install it on all servers if you have multiple servers.but don't run configuration wizard until completing the installation on all servers first.
    6- once the update (wss 3.0 SP3, Moss 2007 Sp3) is installed on all servers on the farm, go to the application server ( which host central administration) and run the configuration wizard on it , then do it on other servers in the farm.
    7- restart the servers after completeing the coniguration wizard steps.if required.
