Patching Project Server 2007 in a MOSS 2007 Farm

Ever wanted to fix the little problems that occur in a Project Server 2007 Farm running on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007? Of course, when I say little problems, I'm talking about missing time, bad actuals in a project plan, MS Project Pro crashing, the Reporting database not matching the Published...those kinds of things. ...grumble... Well, here's the patching list in the order that the patches should be installed. Note that you may have to request a great deal of these, but thankfully Microsoft has made that process a bit easier. You'll also note that I start with SP1 and nothing earlier. This is because SP1 is a nice cumulative rollup, you can now get MOSS and Project Server with SP1 and some of the patches prior to SP1 don’t play well with it. You will need to run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard after each installation.

One more thing, make sure that you have full internet access before attempting this patching sequence. There are some checks that the patch process performs that require internet access. If you don’t have it, you could have some failed installations and Project Server Services not starting.

Finally, I’ve also included the patching process for Project Professional 2007. If you simply patch the servers and fail to patch the client, then you will continue to have problems. Also note that this patching process will help keep a myriad of issues from happening, but won’t necessarily go back and fix problems that have already happened. Those fixes need to be handled on a per-issue scenario.
