Project Server 2010 SP-2 Upgrade RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have Project Server 2010 installed on co-existing SharePoint Server 2010.

    Here we want to go for SP-2 upgrade for Project Server 2010.

    Our SharePoint 2010 SP-2 environment is already been upgraded to SP-2.

    So Now If I install binaries on all Project And Sharepoint Server WFE and APP server.

    Then Do I need to run SharePoint Configuration wizard again, I am asking because my sharepoint DBs are already upgraded to SP-2.

    So I don't run configuration wizard and then just upgrade only PWA databases using following powershell command Upgrade-SPProjectWebInstance –URL http://Contoso/pwa will it make my up-gradation successful,

    Or I have to run configuration wizard again to upgrade the SharePoiunt DB??

    In my opinion I think I don';t need to run configuration wizard again as my sharepoint DBs are already upgraded to SP-2.

    What all you say, Please suggest

  • To ensure the farm is updated, run the farm config wizard on each server after deploying the patches on all servers in the farm. Patch all the servers, once all servers have the correct patches, run the config wiard on the central admin server first, once complete move to the next server in the farm.

  • Thanks Paul,

    I got your point, here in our environment as we have Sharepoint 2010 SP-2 already installed, can we skip the Configuration Wizard step.

    I am asking because it will save our lot of time and required outage will be very less in this case.

    But let me know if running configuration wizard is must to do activity even if SharePoint database has already been upgraded to SP_2 earlier.

  • I understand you already have SP2 for SharePoint, I'd still say you need to run the SP config wizard as it does more than just update the databases, it will configure the farm / binaries on the server too.
