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?

  • I got an LDAP container error, plus a bunch of postsetup errors, retrying now

  • Did you run the config wizard after installing?

  • 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.

I have published an article describing the steps required to install and configure SharePoint Server 2010 SP1 on the existing farm with screen shots. See below URL for detail:

How to install and configure SharePoint Server 2010 SP1 on the existing SP 2010 Farm


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
