The guidance and "best practice" up until the August 2011 CU is to install SPF Service Packs and CU's on Server edition. From August 2011 the packaging process has changed and you only need one package to install. So in order to install SP1 + June CU do this: (the Microsoft recommendation is to install June CU directly after SP1, there are a couple of nasty ...

Per Microsoft: Although SP2 for the 2007 Office Desktop products can be uninstalled, you cannot uninstall 2007 Office Servers Service Pack 2 for Office server products. The main reason for this is that the installation of 2007 Office Server Service Pack 2 makes changes to back-end databases, and those database changes are currently unable to be ...

Foundation SP1 - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2460058 Joel Oleson has spelled it out very well, http://www.sharepointjoel.com/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=453

That error can be caused by a lot of things, e.g.: service accounts with invalid passwords missing feature dependencies missing content databases lack of permissions of your account the user account control (UAC) on the server (eventhough you should see a "access denied" error) a previous unfinished upgrade process any many more... I recommend rebooting ...

I had the same errors. Detaching databases didn't help, it was for some reason, the langue packs that were bugging me. After deinstalling the language packs, and running PSconfig again, my upgrade finished! correct upgrade order (In my opinion ;). some people think different about the subject): install SP1 - foundation install SP1 - Server psconfig ...

you can use command "net start sptimerv4" in command window when the wizard is starting phase 9/10, then you can see it's work fine!

The workflow issue is a security feature, although in your current situation, you might not agree. It's easier to just fix the recursion issues for the workflows because going forward it has to be done anyway (SP2 required for upgrade where it will be required to be fixed). Add trigger column(s) to your list and create a second workflow that fires on ...

I finally sorted this issue. I ended up ringing MS on it and their only official supported fix was to delete and recreate the User Profile Service Application & it's database. However this was on our production server and I couldn't do that. Luckily based on their information I was able to come up with an unofficial fix. The error happens because ...

Looks like this a common issue. I had same issue after researching why Search wasn't working and only returning an error message. You could fix the issue by following instructions here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/opal/archive/2010/04/18/track-sharepoint-2010-installations-by-service-connection-point-ad-marker.aspx But, you don't want to leave as is.

Are you able to take a backup of the content database that holds the site collection? If you do so you can then restore the SQL Content DB to your dev sql instance and attach it to a development web application, the attach will perform an 'upgrade' on the content db and should take care of your issue.

I had the same problem. It turns out I just needed to remember to run the SP2010 Products Configuration Wizard by right clicking and using "Run As Administrator". (as my system is deployed on a Windows 2008 R2 server). Even though I was logged in with privileged accounts (including the admin account used to install SharePoint in the first place), it would ...

From my experience: Hot Fixes are to be applied IF and ONLY if the issue affects you. Hotfixes can go horribly wrong if applied in production without testing out in a staging environment first CUs are usually pre-requisites for SP installs, so you can either do it in one shot before the SP Install or pace them out and do CU and then SP We usually wait ...

Thanks for all the answers so far. I have managed to resolve the issue myself. I was attempting to install WSS3 onto Server 2008. It seems that during the install process SP2 is downloaded and installed. I can only assume SP2 is required for WSS3 to work on 2008. I'm now using a machine running Server 2003 and have managed to install WSS3 SP1. I should ...

The stored procedure you are referring to is (proc_DefragmentIndices) and is discussed in this KB article. The stored procedure works within the limitations of the online index build feature, one of which being that you cannot perform an online index on an index that contains a LOB (large object) column. The bad news? SharePoint stores a lot of BLOB data ...

Just install the Server Service Pack. When it comes to SharePoint patches, you really can't "go back" (easily).

their is no easy way as far i know unless uninstall the SharePoint. I would simply install the SharePoint server SP1, you will all set. If you know Server Service Pack include both Foundation & server SP1. So if you installed the foundation separately then when you run the Server SP1 it will automatically detect it and install only server related stuff ...

wpresources is meant to hold all of the supporting resources for installed web parts. It could be images, additional code, forms, help files, etc. I don't think, this is SP1 issue, as you mentioned...You install it and run the config wizard via psconfig tool and no issue reported. Did you run the Config Wizard via GUI after that? What install in the ...
