Please refer to the newest updates, posted here:

UPDATED: 12/11/2008 - 957693 was relased with 957175  built in (they are identical patches [complicated stort as to why this had to be]), so if you have installed 957693, you don't need to install 957175.  If you installed 957175, you won't need to install 957693, when you install the Oct CU updates on your farm. Again, they are identical patches, so you only need to install one of them.  If you try to install both, you will get an error message when you try stating that "this update is already installed."


 


 


Microsoft has released the October cumulative update (CU) packages for WSS 2007 and MOSS 2007.  The WSS CU has two packages and MOSS has five packages.  


 


The information listed below assumes your farm has SP1 installed for both WSS and MOSS.  If you are running a farm that is pre-SP1, you need to install WSS and MOSS SP1 prior to installing the updates below.  If you are building a new farm using media with SP1 integrated, you have WSS and MOSS SP1 already, so you only need to install the updates below.  Keep in mind, any updates that are labeld "Local" are language specific and may require you to install the same patch severals times, once for each language of MOSS you have installed.  I have yet to figure out why the product group will sometimes release a single patch with all the languages included and sometimes the releaes a seperate patch for each lanaguage.  I know most customers prefer a single patch, as it greatly reduce the number of patches you need to install, which is always a good thing.

I can’t stress enough the need to review the software update procedures.  Checking and removing orphaned content is a vital prerequisite for update installation, orphaned content will cause some packages to fail.  One additional orphan check that is not detachable by STSADM -o databaserepair, that I also highly recommend running, is outlined here.

  1. Just a thank you for posting these updates. It really helps simplify my ‘watch’ of Microsoft updates for SharePoint knowing someone who can articulate things well is keeping an eye on it and posting regularly.

    Terrific blog and help,
