Confirm update sequence for Project Server 2010 SP1 + June 2011 CU RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Can you confirm the update sequence for SP1 + June 2011 CU.  My question is if I can install all of the updates and then run the Config Wizard at the end or do I have to run it after SP1?

    Run the setup from Project Server 2010 SP1 (Note that this includes SharePoint 2010 SP1)

    Don’t run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard

    Install Office Servers 2010 Language Pack SP1 (Includes Project Server 2010 SP1 Language Pack)

    Don’t run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard

    Install Project Server 2010 June 2011 CU (includes SharePoint 2010 June 2011 CU)

    Run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard

  • Hi There,

    You can install all the updates, then run the wizard as you have mentioned above.

  • You can install all updates and then run Sharepoint Config Wizard. Read the following Technet Article:
    Deploy Service Pack 1 for Project Server 2010

    Read section titled 'Considerations when you are updating a Project Server 2010 farm deployment to Service Pack 1'. There is:

    1. Patching Process
    2. Upgrade Process

    You can deploy all updates per PAtching process and then run config wizard. Run SP Config Wizard on server hosting Central Admin site first, then on other application servers and at the end on web servers.

    Here are my steps I test in my lab VM that worked for me:

    1. Stop WWW Publishing Service on Web Server
    2. Stop MS Project Server Queue Service 2010 on App Server
    3. On app run SP1 
    4. On app run June CU
    5. On Web run SP1
    6. On Web run June CU
    7. On App Server (Central Admin hosted) run Sharepoint config Wizard
    8. On Web server run Sharepoint config Wizard
    9. Verify success status in Central Admin > Upgrade and Migration > check upgrade status
    10. Verify in Central Admin > Upgrade and Migration > Review Database Status, that 'No action required' is the status of all databases
    11. Review the upgrade log files located under 14 hive (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS\Upgrade-####.log)
    12. Reboot Servers (Not necessary though)

  • This worked for me on my development machine.  One note however I had to open IIS Manager and manually start SharePoint Central Admin and other SharePoint websites.  Not sure why they didn't start automatically.

  • Hi,

    In addition to the excellent advice above, particularly the Deploy Service Pack 1 for Project Server 2010 link, there seems to be a bit of debate amongst the community as to whether the install order should be SharePoint Foundation -> SharePoint Server -> Project Server (as per this link Personally I installed the combined SharePoint Server + Project Server on my main demo VM without issue, but on a customer site, I will be going this SPF -> SPS -> PS route.

    I would also suggest checking out the Upgrade webcast on the 6th July.

    Good luck :)
