Hello All,


So it is that time again when the SharePoint group releases the Cumulative Updates for all versions of SharePoint, here are the links you need to know


1. Description of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 cumulative update server hotfix package (WSS server-package): August 28, 2012 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2687331


2. Description of the SharePoint Server 2007 hotfix package
(Coreserver-x-none.msp, Svrproof-pt-pt.msp): August 28, 2012 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2687379


3. Description of the SharePoint Server 2010 cumulative update
package (SharePoint server-package): August 28, 2012 http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;2687353


4. Description of the SharePoint Server 2010 cumulative update
package (SharePoint server-package): August 28, 2012 http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;268735


5. Description of the Project 2010 hotfix package
(Project-x-none.msp): August 28, 2012 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2687386


Some things to think of as you plan your update process.



  1. These are packaged updates since the last service pack, do you actually have that Service Pack installed?


    1. SharePoint 2007 is currently at Service Pack 3

    2. SharePoint 2010 is currently at Service Pack 1


  2. These are not regression tested, do you have a strategy to deal with a broken component?

  3. You must run psconfig after installing the bits on each server, do you have enough down time planned?

  4. Do you have valid backups in case you need to rollback?
