  • Cumulative updates include all updates in the current and all previous CU's. SO installing the latest shoould install everything.

  • Ok, all cumulative updatas are covers.  I have inherited a SharePoint 2007 server with updates installed up to SP1 installed on it.  Do all updates that are not cumulative need to be installed before the most recent cumulative update is applied?  Such as the updates listed below.  My current version is 12.0.0.6219.

    12.0.0.6421    WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007<sup>1</sup> SP2 (KB953338 + KB953334)
    12.0.0.6318    WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007<sup>1</sup> Infrastructure Update (KB951695 & KB951297)
    12.0.0.6303    WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007<sup>1</sup> post-SP1 hotfix (KB948945)
    12.0.0.6301    WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007<sup>1</sup> post-SP1 hotfix (KB941274)
    12.0.0.6300    WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007<sup>1</sup> post-SP1 hotfix (KB941422)

    Thank you ahead of time for your help.

  • The theory is that a cumulative upgrade will include all the fixes a normal user will need.

    There are two situations where earlier fixes are not included

    1. The fix is one of those "don't use it if you don't have the problem"

    2. The fix was made available in the period between the Cumulative Upgrade being assembled and before it was released (i.e. when it was being tested).

    You should be able to see what is included in a Cumulative Upgrade (they used at least to product KB articles with "descriptions of what is in the cumulative upgrade for ...) so could check for yourself if the fixes you list are included in this cumulative upgrade or were included in earlier cumulative upgrades (and thus in this one)

  • As far as I remember, the Infrastructure updates were not a part of any CU. This was an independent release.

    Like Mike mentioned, it would be best to check the the packages used in a particualr CU and compare.
