Can a sharepoint security patch automatically upgrade your sharepoint installation.
Recently my company experienced an outage after installing a bunch of Microsoft Security patches and automatic upgrade is currently my best guess ??
These patches included
Anyway after some investigation it turns out there was mismatch between our
db_schema version 12.0.65 29.5000
and our Microsoft.SharePoint.dll 12.0.65 45.5002
which was causing issues with checkout of documents and editing properties.
Our test and dev environments are still using version 12.0.6529.5000 for both dll and db_schema. We believed that this was the version of Microsoft.SharePoint.dll we were using in production.
The mystery is how our production environment ended up with version 12.0.6545.5002 of the Microsoft.SharePoint.dll.
Any clues on how to investigate this or clues on how it might have happened would be very much appreciated.
