Installation Recommendation for a fresh SharePoint Server
To keep all files in a SharePoint installation up-to-date, the following sequence is recommended.
- Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Service Pack 1
- The 2007 Microsoft Office Servers Service Pack 1
- February Cumulative Update for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0
- February Cumulative Update for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007
Meanwhile, if customer need to index Visio files, there is a Visio iFilter hotfix which is not a part of the uber package.
After applying the preceding updates, run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard or “psconfig –cmd upgrade –inplace b2b -wait” in command line. This needs to be done on every server in the farm with SharePoint installed.
The version of content databases should be 12.0.6341.5000 after successfully applying these updates.
For more in-depth guidance for the update process, we recommend that customers refer to the following articles. These articles provide a correct way to deploy updates, identify known issues (and resolutions), and provide information about creating slipstream builds.
