How to locate Cumulative Updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I recently found the page at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/ee748587 to help me keep track of the cumulative updates as this can be a tricky process.

    However, for the February update, the KB at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2493730 (which I got from the first link above), does not have the server rollup packages meaning you have to download and install all of the server packages individually.  By a fluke (lucky Google search) I managed to get to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2475879 which has the cumulative update packaged all in one as a Project Server update.  However - this KB is now dated 03 March 2011 - not february at all.

    How do you guys keep track of the new updates, and the different pages that they are listed on?  And for the Microsoft folks reading this - perhaps you can look at making this a little bit easier?

    Another thing that I think might be of interest - its never clear from the KB page exactly which previous updates are included in a CU.  Can you perhaps include a section on exactly which previous KBs are included in each CU?

    thanks,

    Nico

  • Hi Nico,  i'm confused by its never clear from the KB page exactly which previous updates are included in a CU.  CU's are cumulative after the latest SP, therefore the Feb CU for Project Server should include all the previous Project Server CUs.  Does that answer your question?

  • Hi Ben,

    I know that the "all updates are included" - however, I just always have an unease that I might be missing an update somewhere along the lines.  I would like the KB to state exactly which other KBs were included in every update.  currently the KBs only states, much as you have, that "all previous CUs are included", this is open to being inaccurate in my opinion...

  • Hi Andrew, thanks thats an interesting link - i notice however that it does not list the update that I refer to above which is a rollup of all the difference SharePoint Server updates, which triggered my posting.
