Service Pack 2 - Outcomes

Thursday, 30 April 2009

I installed Service Pack 2 for WSS and MOSS on two seperate environments, one was a breeze (following Shanes Almanac Instructions), and took around 1/2 hour but the other failed on Step 8 of the Configuration Wizard.

The failed installation showed up the following errors in the logs:

04/30/2009 09:32:06 8 INF Resource id to be retrieved is UpgradeTaskFailConfigSyncDisplayLabel for language English (United States)

04/30/2009 09:32:06 8 INF Resource retrieved id UpgradeTaskFailConfigSyncDisplayLabel is Failed to upgrade SharePoint Products and Technologies.

I tried various psconfig and stsadm upgrade commands, but nothing worked...

Anyway, it seems the Groupboard Workspace application was causing it to fail (as was the case with the Infrastructure Update last July) I uninstalled Groupboard 2007 from Add/Remove programs, and SP2 installed perfectly!

SP 2 offers numerous fixes and performance updates. One, I had a quick look at was the preupgradecheck.

preupgradecheck

Once you've installed SP2, goto a command prompt and type

stsadm -o preupgradecheck -localonly

after a number of checks the results will appear in the 12 hive\logs\ in a file called PreUpgradeCheck--xxxx-xxx.htm

Both my farms are fine, except the fact they both failed on 1 point - the Servers in the farm aren't 64bit Windows 2008! which is a pre req for Windows SharePoint Service 4.0!

Aj...

The problem is that the government has neutered itself by giving so much to the financial industry, without thinking about the consequences for other areas - such as the health service - for which they also have responsibility.
