  • Central Administration > Operations > Servers in Farm

  • Check this post for version / patch relationship:

    (shows up to June Cumulative as of 7/09)


  • Technet Update Resource Center for SPPT

    Step 1 - links for WSS and MOSS have different text, but they link to the same video. Produced 3/08 but still relevant.

    Step 2 - separate sites for WSS and MOSS.

    Step 3 - Remember, MOSS servers run on WSS, so you have to install WSS patch first, the MOSS patch.

    We do not install Language Packs, so I can’t speak to that. I do know they have to be installed after updates, and again must install WSS then MOSS.

Other Tips

  • First thing after each update, rename the update log file. I just append the patch &/or date to it.

  • Bonus tip: Create a desktop shortcut to the 12 hive folder

    Target = C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe /n,/e,C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\LOGS

  • and a link for CMD to open the 12 hive directory.

We use Office 2007 at Roanoke County.

When I was in a Checked Out, edit mode version of a document from a WSS library I would periodically try to Save and it would be in Read Only mode.
