Installinig SP2 of MOSS 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We want to upgrade our MOSS 2007 environment to SP2. We have one SharePoint Server and one database server.

    I have below questions related to this upgrade process:

    1. Do we require to install WSS and MOSS SP2 on database server also?

    2. If upgrade, do we require to reconfigure all the web applications and services configuration?

    3. If upgrade, do we require to reconfigure all the settings like users, group, webparts, etc?

    4. Will this upgradation process create any issues in existing functionalities of the applications?

    5. Will this upgraded SP2 environment have any drawbacks?

    Please reply me ASAP.

    Thanks,

    Maulik joshi

  • You can indeed, but obviously a bit more involved and an entirely different question.

    Start with reading the documentation on methods and approaches http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263447.aspx and then ask questions on the parts you're not sure on.

  • Maulik,

    I'll try to answer all your questions based on what I think you're asking.

    1. No, you don't need to do anything with the database server

    2. No

    3. No

    4. This very much depends on if you have any custom solutions deployed to your environment.  Out of the box SharePoint functionality will be fine.

    5. There was an issue with a 180 day expiry time but this was address.

    Is there any reason why you wouldn't go to SP3?  Also, you should apply the Service Pack to a test environment first, especially if you have custom solutions.

    Read the guide on preparing to deploy service packs to make sure you fully understand the implications http://technet.microsoft.com/library/cc263467(office.12).aspx

  • Hi Paul,

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    Is there any alternative rather than installing SP2 on MOSS2007 server( as it's production server) and client doesn't agree to install SP2.

    Is there a way so we can import the data from old content database of MOSS2007 to new Sharepoint 2010 database server?

    Thank You,

    Maulik

  • Hi Paul,

    We've same issue But,

    We've one another question for this.

    As per this link, http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=16679, it says, "Microsoft does not support installing Service Pack 2 (SP2) for SharePoint Products and Technologies on servers that are running Office SharePoint Server 2007 for Search.In 2008, Microsoft Search Server 2008 replaced Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 for Search. At that time, Microsoft discontinued support for Office SharePoint Server 2007 for Search. Installing SP2 for SharePoint Products and Technologies might cause Office SharePoint Server 2007 for Search to be incorrectly registered as a trial version. "

    We're using search service in our MOSS 2007 environment and we want to upgrade it to SharePont 2010. So if we upgrade to MOSS SP2, our search services may not be work as expected?

    So can you let us know in that case what should we do?

    Thank You,
