Project 2007 SP1 – The gift that keeps on giving

So with the Holiday season in full swing – what to give that difficult person who has everything.  How about Project 2007 SP1?  Yes, the links should soon be live, and until then you can prepare by reading the TechNet article at http://technet2.microsoft.com/Office/en-us/library/c3b86049-7cba-4b9c-8335-e37fb6e7518a1033.mspx?mfr=true 

Please read all of the article – and also note that there is just one Microsoft Office Server 2007 SP1 which fits the whole family.  So don’t go looking for a file that just says “projectserver” as you won’t find it.  The file will be called officeserver2007sp1-kb936984… with the last piece of the file name referencing wither the 32 or 64 bit version.

If you do have Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 then the SP1 file is the same – but the document you should read as well as the one above is http://technet2.microsoft.com/Office/en-us/library/f484f5f2-35bb-4d70-bf56-dd1c4c287c721033.mspx?mfr=true

And for any version of Office Server you also need to load the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 first (it won’t work if you don’t, and it will tell you why), and both Service Packs need loading on all servers in the farm (except your database server if it isn’t doing anything else).  See the related links section of the article for more details on planning for the WSS 3.0 SP1.

For the client there is a separate SP1.  It is not imperative that you load at the same time as the server – it will work if you load client first and do the server later – or the other way around.  I will update with the links when they are all available – but planning is important – so get reading!
