SharePoint 2010 SP1 released and Office Sept CU available

SharePoint 2010 SP1 was released on 28th June 2011 and it is available for download

It is important to have your systems updated with the latest service packs and subsequently with the cumulative updates (CU) which MS typically releases each month.

Some important points to note before going ahead with the installation: 

  1. Do read the known issues published on the TechNet: 
  2. Be aware about the order to follow in case of these updates: 
    • Update SharePoint Foundation first with SP1 and then install the CU 
    • Then SharePoint Server with SP1 and then install June CU 
  3. If you have a farm installation, then run “psconfig –cmd upgrade –inplace b2b -wait” on every server in the farm following the final update installed else run the same command on your standalone box
  4. To verify if the updates have been installed properly, check the Central Administration à System Settings à Manage Servers In Farm
    Or, in PowerShell, write (get-spfarm).buildversion
It should display 14.0.6029.1000 after SharePoint Server 2010 SP1. Hope this helps folks trying to keep their SP2010 boxes up-to-date.
