April Cumulative Update (CU) deployment question RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a MOSS server farm with SP2 installed. Now if I deploy the most recent April Cumulative Update (CU) Released April 24, 2012 to my MOSS server farm, does it mean it will automatically include all SP3 update as well?

    Thanks in advance,

    Peter

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, Microsoft’s Cumulative Updates includes all previous CU and hotfixes. You can know that from the size of a CU. For example, the size of the April CU is 317 MB, while the officeserver2007sp3-kb2526299-x64-fullfile-en-us.exe’s size is 283 MB.

    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.
