Sharepoint 2007 WSS 3.0 SP3 Hotfix wss-kb2598130 WSS Version 6661 Fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to apply a hotfix patch to a new instance of Microsoft Office Project Server 2007 WSS 3.0.  I am able to run the SP3 upgrade fine, and everything seems to be working afterwards, it isn't until I try to apply the hotfix that everything starts to break.  After applying the hotfix, I run the config wizard, and it gets to step 8 and break with the following error message.

    Failed to upgrade SharePoint Products and Technologies.  Further information regarding this failure can be found at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\LOGS\Upgrade.log.
    An exception of type Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.PostSetupConfigurationTaskException was thrown.  Additional exception information: Failed to upgrade SharePoint Products and Technologies.
    Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.PostSetupConfigurationTaskException: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.PostSetupConfigurationTaskException' was thrown.

    Not entirely sure what to do at this point.  I am trying to apply the hotfix to allign the version number with another instance on another server.

    Thanks for any help!

  • Did look at the upgrade.log and see what details are in there?
