Deploy software updates for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

We recommend that you follow the process and procedures in this topic for most deployment scenarios, from stand-alone server deployments to very large server farms. The typical process for installing software updates consists of copying the files to a computer and then running either the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard or the Psconfig command-line tool to upgrade the databases.

In this article, we use the term software update as a general term for all update types, including any service pack, update, update rollup, feature pack, critical update, security update, or hotfix used to improve or fix this software product.
