Project Server 2007 - Service pack and Cumulative updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     I wanted to make clear a point. Hope experts can help me on this.

    We have the Project server 2007 installed. We have the latest Service Pack 2 and ever since then have been installing all the cumulative updates to PS 2007, WSS, MOSS. The latest update was of Aug'10 that we have installed after Apr'10

    My question is , When we install the Latest cumulative update, do we have to redo the installation of all the cumulative updates or is it enough if i install only the Aug Cumulative update.

    Does the Aug cumulative update cover all the patches.

    Please let me know or suggest blog or links which explain how i need to keep my PS Server updated.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    I think that is the definition you are looking for:
    "Definition: A CU is a roll-up update that contains all previous critical on-demand hotfixes to date. Additionally, a CU contains fixes for issues that meet the hotfix acceptance criteria. These criteria may include the availability of a workaround, the effect on the customer, the reproducibility of the problem, the complexity of the code that must be changed, or other reasons." (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/824684)

    And yes, CU August 2010 does cover all previous patches.

    Relevant information regarding updates are posted at this blog: http://blogs.technet.com/b/projectadministration/

    Does that help?

  • Hi max_pin,

    you can only install the last CU. 

    The last CU contains all hotfix of previous versions.

    Best Regards,
