MOSS 2007 SP2 update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I am getting ready to update my farm to MOSS 2007 SP2 (believe it or not) but I’m a little confused about this.

    There are many sites out there stating that you need to install WSS SP2 before installing MOSS 2007 SP2.  My farm was deployed with MOSS 2007 build 12.0.0.6332 but we never installed WSS.

     

    If anyone can point me to some sites or provide details about this it will be appreciated.

     

    Thanks

  • Thats correct...

    WSS SP2 then MOSS Sp2 then run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard.

    If you have multiple servers install the Updates on All Servers prior to running SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard and start with the CA....

    Order of installation

    1.        Service Pack 2 for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

    2.        Service Pack 2 for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Language Pack (if applicable)

    3.        Service Pack 2 for Office SharePoint Server 2007

    4.        Service Pack 2 for Office SharePoint Server 2007 Language Pack (if applicable)

    5.        Run SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard on one server at a time, starting with CA


    1. Can I run the configuration wizard on the other servers simultaneously. NO, you must run either psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait -force or the Configuration Wizard on one server at a time..

    2. Can I install the binaries on the server simultaneously and then run the configuration wizard in the recommended order (Server(s) hosting CA) > App Servers > WFEs)?  Or must I install the binaries in the same order and wait for this to complete before installing the binaries on another server?  Trying to save time because we have a small window. YES, you can install the binaries at the same time.



    Cheers,

  • All MOSS 2007 installations include WSS 3.0 functionality.

    Thus you need to install both WSS 3.0 (to update those parts) SP2 and then MOSS 2007 SP2 (to update the "server" parts)


    (These are the 100% true facts - you don't need a document to prove it)



    P.S. To a certain extent Microsoft caused this problem by using the same name (WSS 3.0) for the technology and for the free product which is based on that technology.

    The differences are that when you install WSS 3.0 (product) it uses the WSS 3.0 technology to create a simple site. (and not really much else)

    When you install MOSS 2007 it uses the same WSS 3.0 technology but adds lots of functions on top,


    Microsoft could have had a service pack for MOSS 2007 which updated both parts but chose to have one service pack for the base technology (which could be used for all products based on that technology) and one for the extra functionality.



    (P.P.S. check the post times, Ivan - overlap!)
