SharePoint 2007 Post SP1 Hotfixes

Print | posted on Wednesday, May 28, 2008 4:24 PM

Updated May 1st 2009

UPDATE: Service Pack 2 for SharePoint 2007 is now available. I will be posting another article detailing post SP2 hotfixes shortly. This page will not be updated further. Please deploy Service Pack 2 as soon as possible!

This is a list of the post Service Pack 1 hotfix packages for SharePoint 2007, primarily for my own reference.
This is not a list of fixes, but rather the update packages themselves. You will find below the build numbers and any notes for each release. These are the build numbers which show up in SharePoint Central Administration on the Servers In Farm page.

The SP1 build number is 12.0.0.6219

You shouldn't deploy these willy nilly unless you are experiencing issues - it's best to wait for the regular "roll up" packages.

I strongly recommend you always install all critical Windows Updates. In particular ensure you are running the latest service packs of each version of the .NET Framework installed on your servers. This one is important when running a least privilege farm. Without .NET 2.0 SP1 you will require an additional fix to get the Search Usage Analysis pages within SSP Admin working.

I also strongly recommend you deploy the IIS6 946517 fix, which resolves the issue with two threads locking the Timer Service and filling your event logs up with 7076, 6398 and 6432s. This is also known as the "Timer Job Shocker" by the boys in Premier Field Engineering (who BTW kick ass).

I also strongly recommend you deploy the Excel Services Security Update if you are running MOSS Enterprise.

Recently the SharePoint teams have, along with the rest of Office, moved to a twice monthly release of cumulative updates. This is a good thing in principle, but it remains to be seen if this will ease the updates burden for MOSS. Time will tell. UPDATE – time has told and this provides a huge improvement to the patching cycles of MOSS environments.

I'm a platform hygiene kinda guy so I keep my farms up to date, but remember to factor this maintenance into your architecture design work, and the SLAs for production. Check out Todd Carter's excellent article on the Zero Downtime Patching Myth.

Buddy: Yes you need to install the WSS package first, but don't run the Config Wizard. Then install the MOSS package and run the config wizard.

John, You need the infrastructure updates for both WSS and MOSS

Nicole: 950292 is for MOSS. If your WSS site is part of a MOSS install it will also correct the issue.

If you have the Infrastructure Update installed, in order "to bring it to the latest and greatest version", you'll only need to install the latest Cumulative Update(s)?

# re: SharePoint 2007 Post SP1 Hotfixes

hansebs: that is correct, since the change to culmalative updates, you simply install the latest set of cumulative updates, which include the previous ones.

the only exception at present is the DLC update, which is a seperate install.

This knowledge base article has the wrong version information in it.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957691
"Description of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 hotfix package (Sts.msp): October 28, 2008"
Says: 12.0.6331.5000

The actual file sent via the hotfix request is version 12.0.6332.5000.

Does that mean you have to run the Config Wizard for each pair of updates, or can you install several updates and then just run the Config Wizard once at the end?

Hi Spencer.

A regular visitor to this fabulous resource.

One humble request - are you able to either change the bg of every second row in the hotfix list, or alternatively align the info at the top of each table cell so that the comments beside the hotfixes are a bit easier to line up with the relevant hotfix?

Thanks
Brad

Hi
Our farm has Wss SP1+MOSS SP1 installed. I want my sharepoint to version to be 12.0.0.6327. DO I need to install the Infrastructure Updates and then apply August Cumulative Updates or else I just install August Cumulative Updates?

Hi Spencer,

nice resource site. I have one question the KB953471 is not longer downloadable because MS has removed it with the answer it has produces man errors. But i have a problem one customer server was patched with this Hotfix and now I want to restore a database from this server on another but without that hotfix im unable to attach the content database to sharepoint, it always said that the db does not match the schema.
Do you have this Hotfix downloaded and available at your resources??

greets
nadine
