  • Could you please provide some information regarding your farm configuration, how many servers, server roles, content database size? Are you having WSS or MOSS?

    First make full farm backup, is no rollback process.

    Second, you need to respect this installation order (central admin, index, wfe)

    1. WSS farm.

    Install WSS SP2 binaries on all the SharePoint servers

    Start configuration wizard on central admin server until the pop-up window appears. Do not click on OK.

    Start configuration wizard on index server until the pop-up window appears. Do not click on OK.

    Start configuration wizard on WFE server until the pop-up window appears. Do not click on OK.

    Return on central admin server and click on OK and finish configuration wizard

    Return on index server and click on OK and finish configuration wizard

    Return on WFE server and click on OK and finish configuration wizard

     

    2. MOSS farm.

    Install WSS SP2 binaries on all the SharePoint servers

    Install MOSS SP2 binaries on all the SharePoint servers

    Start configuration wizard on central admin server until the pop-up window appears. Do not click on OK.

    Start configuration wizard on index server until the pop-up window appears. Do not click on OK.

    Start configuration wizard on WFE server until the pop-up window appears. Do not click on OK.

    Return on central admin server and click on OK and finish configuration wizard

    Return on index server and click on OK and finish configuration wizard

    Return on WFE server and click on OK and finish configuration wizard
