I have started the install process for SharePoint 2010 SP1. The instructions I found on Microsoft stated that I should download the package and then start it.

However it appears that the install package did not stop OWSTimer or the IIS sites. This has caused a lot of errors in my application event log and a steady stream of Visual Studio Debug Consoles starting.

So did I do something wrong with the SP1 install?

Check the upgrade logs and the ULS logs. Then post any errors here so that we might be able to help you. – Wictor Wilen MCA MCM MVP Jun 28 '11 at 20:46
I got an LDAP container error, plus a bunch of postsetup errors, retrying now – Colin Jun 28 '11 at 20:49
Did you run the config wizard after installing? – Lori Jun 28 '11 at 20:53
The errors occured during the SP1 install. I did the required reboot after install. I am checking now to see if everything is running properly. I have not run the config wizard. – Jeff Jun 28 '11 at 20:57

My install says all is updated except Language pack. Installation itself works fine. No problems during install itself. Did follow all the steps, Foundation update, foundation Languagepack (not needed), server update, server language pack update (I used the LP including the project server files, but used the server only lp update, so that didn+t get updated
