SharePoint 2010 Foundation SP1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a FIM 2010 R2 Deployment with SharePoint farm and we used SharePoint 2010 Foundation for this. I was wondering if we want to upgrade to SharePoint Foundartion 2010 SP1, is there any process we would need to follow and if there are known issues/risks arround it.

    Regards,
    John

  • Yes, there is one. After you do the SP1 upgrade, there is another step required.

    Patching SharePoint is a two-step process. The updated binaries are first installed and then PSCONFIG must be used to update the SharePoint databases.

    In order to update the SharePoint databases, you must manually run the PSconfig utility. To run the utility:

    1. Open an Administrative command prompt.  
    2. Change directory to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN    
    3. Run PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd installfeatures

  • Hi,

    There is no risk to install the FIM. And you can start to install the FIM, if needed it will ask itself to download and install the SP1.

    Here is link you can follow that. But you need the SQL 2008 SP1. Only SharePoint 2010 foundation required or SharePoint 3.0 services with sp2

    Good luck.

  • Thanks Frank & Irfan! So there is no impact on the existing FIM Portal installation - great!
