Office 2007

Updated: April 28, 2009

 

Topic Last Modified: 2009-04-27

This checklist is an overview of how to install the latest updates to a new farm deployment of Microsoft Office Project Server 2007. For a detailed overview of the different software updates that are available for Office Project Server 2007, see Deploy Project Server 2007 updates.

 

Plan and prepare

[ ]

Create a recovery plan — how to restore the environment to its original state if the update is not successful.

[ ]

Create a communications plan to notify all stakeholders of the operational maintenance activities and expected downtimes.

[ ]

If possible, apply the update in a test environment and verify the effects on your data.

Note the following when planning to install Office Project Server 2007 Service Pack 2 to a Office Project Server 2007 farm.

  • Office Project Server 2007 Service Pack 2 contains all the fixes that are in Office Project Server 2007 Service Pack 1, plus additional changes.

  • Microsoft highly recommends that you install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Service Pack 2 as well.

  • The infrastructure update for Project Server is included in Office Project Server 2007 Service Pack 2.

If you are installing an Office Project Server 2007 update that includes the Project Server infrastructure update, the Project 2007 infrastructure update should be installed to all Office Project Professional 2007 client computers that connect to the farm. For more information about this requirement, see Deploy the infrastructure update for Office Project Server 2007.

For detailed guidance about deploying the Service Pack 2 (SP1) update to a Office Project Server 2007 deployment, see Deploy Service Pack 2 for Office Project Server 2007.

 

Install Service Pack 1

[ ]

On the server hosting the SharePoint Central Administration Web site, install the binary files for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Service Pack 2. Do not run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard.

On the server hosting Central Administration, install the binary files for Office Server 2007 Service Pack 2, of which Project Server 2007 Service Pack 2 is a part. Do not run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard.

[ ]

On all other servers in the farm, install binary files for both Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Service Pack 2 and Office SharePoint Server 2007 Service Pack 2. Do not run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard when installation of the binary files concludes for either update.

Note the following when planning to install a Project Server cumulative update to a Office Project Server 2007 farm:
