cumal updates - should these be installed like service packs

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 09, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi, I have moss 2007 and have sp2 on it.  Im experiencing problems with it for the last 2 weeks...fine for months before this...it now needs to be restarted after 4 hours of use..very annoying.  Nothing in event viewer...nothing that stands out in sp logs.  If i restart iis or sql server 2000...still same problem...only cure is the server needs to be restarted. Since i never installed the cumal updates...i figured it could be something to do with this so i was going to install the august 2010 ones (which would give me all other cum updates).  But when i go to the cumal updates link on the microsoft page...link below...the cum updates are described as only to be installed if required for something in particular.  i thought they were like service packs rather than hotfixes...should you not install these unless u have an identified problem...do other moss admins install these when they are released? Any advice on what i should do about the cumal updates...much appreciated. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2276474

How to get a list of installed MOSS 2007 updates?

We have several problems with our MOSS 2007 installation and operation and since we found out that two identical sharepoint servers (production and test) that had same updates applied have different Search_DB databases (they have same name function with different number of parameters, for ex.) we have a single idea of what can be the cause: Somehow, windows update or other quirk, an update or hotfix got applied to one of the servers.  Strange thing is, noone of our employees seems to know, neither google seems to know, how do we exactly get a list of installed updates on the MOSS 2007 installation.   So, simple question: HOW? How do we get a complete list of changes (hotfixes, servicepacks, patches) done to an installation of MOSS?

Does SQL 2008 R2 support WSS 3.0 (no service packs) ?

SQL Server 2008 R2 Setup & Service Packs

Hello I installed SQL Server 2008 R2. (Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (RTM) - 10.50.1600.1 (X64)   Apr  2 2010 15:48:46   Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation  Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.1 <X64> (Build 7600: ) (Hypervisor) ) Are there any Service Packs for SQL Server 2008 R2 available i need to apply? Thanks V

Can the cumulative updates be installed during the 2010 upgrade before the configuration wizard is r

For an in-place upgrade of MOSS 2007 Enterprise to SharePoint 2010 Enterprise done by running the installation package, cancelling out of running the configuration wizard, installing all of the cumulative updates, and then run the configuration wizard one time? The "Understanding Updates for SharePoint" white paper states: It is possible to successfully install service packs, hotfixes, and language packs and their updates all at the same time, and only run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard one time. However, the environment will not be accessible between installing the first update and the final update and running the configuration wizard. It would be nice if this also applied to the 2010 upgrade to say on some machine time. Thanks!Eric

Uninstalling or removing service packs


My question is whether or not I need the Microsoft.NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 installed on my laptop if I have the Mcrosoft. NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 2.

In other words do I need both programs installed on my hard drive or can i remove one?

Security Update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 (KB970892) could not be installed

How to create 2nd instance after applying service packs?

I've read that to create a second (named) instance I simply need to rerun the setup.exe program. But that setup.exe has no service packs applied to it. After installing the 2nd instance, will I need to apply the service pack to it? Will there be any impact on another instance already running that already has the SP applied?

Just installed SP2010 RTM. Now receiving "The Security Token Service is not available" error.


I have spent the better part of today researching this error and have not been able to resolve it. I made sure the "SharePoint Web Services" application pool was started. I have also rebooted the server. There was a lot of mention about a HotFix, but it was already installed. Anyone have any other ideas?

Here is the error:

The SharePoint Health Analyzer detected a condition requiring your attention. The Security Token Service is not available.

The Security Token Service is not issuing tokens. The service could be malfunctioning or in a bad state.

Administrator should try to restart the Security Token Service on the boxes where it is not issuing tokens. If problem persists, further troubleshooting may be available in the KB article. For more information about this rule, see "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=160531".

MSRS folder should be installed with Reporting Service, correct?


I know the answer to this, but i would like to confirm with you gurus out there :)

so, we have a client, and he said he has installed Reporting Service. However, I coudln't find any MSRS folder on his drive.

Usually, when a reporting service is installed properly, there should be a folder called MSRS$SOMETHING on the drive, correct?

Please let me know.

Web Service updates


Hello everyone,
I have a web application where I am consuming a web service which contains 15 web methods.

I need to write a function that displays in a pge these 15 webmethods (names, input parameters and output parameters).
How can I do that? I guess I have to access the wsdl file? can you help please.

My second question: the developer must select or choose some of these web methods. then he will be able to access the web methods
he selects only.
I guess I have to manipulate the "reference.vb" file generated by the web service, right?

Any advise.
Thank you

Windows Service Applications Tutorials

You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

WCF Tip: Using Properties in Service Contracts

you'll notice all of the Service Contracts are implemented with interfaces containing only methods. For the longest time I thought that's all that was supported, until I thought about it a little more. In C# land, properties are simply wrappers around a get method and set method, so why wouldn't we be able to use properties in a service contract? Well the answer is we can.
