Advice - Update to the last Project Server Cumulative Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    I need your advice about what would be the cumulative updates or Service Pack I need to install in our Production Server in order to have the last updates installed.

    Currently we have:

    - Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Service Pack 1

    - No updates in Project Server 2010.

    So I was reading the Microsoft Sites, and I think based in what we have, we need to install the following...

    Steps:

    1. Install SharePoint Server 2010 February 2013 Cumulative Update. I think only this because we already have the Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Service Pack 1.

    2. Install Project Server 2010 February 2013 Cumulative Update. I'm not sure about this step, I dont know if we need to install the Project Server 2010 SP1, I read the prerequistes for this cumulative update and would be enough the Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Service Pack 1, please let me know your comments about this...

    My questions are:

    About the step 2, I´m not sure how to install the last updates in Project Server if I didn't install anything in the past for Project Server.

    Also do I need to install something about SharePoint Foundation 2010?

    Thanks for your help/Comments.

  • Javier,

    Since you have Project Server and SharePoint server you should always install server roll-up patches. Which consist of both hotfixes. From Aug 2012 all future CU's has hard requirement of Sp1 until SP2 is releases

    Since CU's can not be uninstalled , it is strongly recommend to test in non-production environment and make sure that you have good backup (Farm+SQL DB backup)

    In your current scenario, here is the correct sequence to get your farm updated

    a. First you need to install Project Server SP1 , here is the link for individual patch

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=26636

    b. Do not run SharePoint configuration wizard yet.

    c. Next install server roll-up patch of Feb 2013 CU

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2767794

    d. Run SharePoint Configuration

    e. Also you have to make sure that all Project Professional 2010 clients are  patched with

    SP1

    32 bit http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26635

    64 bit http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26627

    Feb 2013

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2760778

    You don't have to install SharePoint Foundation patch. Server Rollup Package contains all the patches released in this Cumulative Update for SharePoint Foundation Server 2010, SharePoint Server 2010 and Project Server 2010

    RSS subscribe to Microsoft Project Server blog for latest updates. Especially to find out correct server roll-up patch when CU is released

  • Thanks for your help Hrishi, I have a questions for you:

    1. What about the SharePoint Server Feb 2013 CU? At what point should I need to install this Cumulative Update? In the steps that you mentioned you put only the Project Server updates...

    2. So you recomendation is to have all the Cumulative Updates installed, right?

    Thanks for your comment about Project Professional 2010, I was not thinking about this...

  • Javier,

    Server roll-up patch link provided above has all patches (Foundation +SharePoint +Project).

    I am not quiet sure about your second question, what do you mean by "all the Cumulative Updates" , Feb CU has all the updates post SP1

  • I understand now, the Project Server Feb CU 2013 will be enough to update Foundation, SharePoint and PS, I don't need to install the other SharePoint Feb CU 2013, great!...

    Thanks for your help.
