  • Hello,

    In terms of pre-requisites I would say the following if this is a production server:

    • Test the deployment on a replica TEST / Pre-Production farm then ask key users to fully test the farm after, if all tests are fine move on. Take a full back ups of the test farm before making any changes so you can roll back if needed
    •  Arrange an outage on the Production farm
    • Shut down all servers in the production farm and take full back ups, virtual machine back ups / snap shots and full farm database backups etc. This is so that you have a restore point if you need to roll back etc.
    • Turn on the SQL server, once this is running start the SharePoint / Project Server servers
    • Ensure you have sufficient disk space free of the SQL / App / Web servers, I normally say around 2 GB free to be safe but the more the better just in case - may be more on the SQL server depending on the database sizes
    • Run the SP1 installers (SharePoint Server SP1 and Project Server SP1) on all SP / PS servers in the farm
    • Run the SharePoint Products Configuration wizard on the server running Central Admin first, then once complete run it on other servers in the farm one at a time
    • Fully test the farm, if all is fine stop the outage and advise users the system is back in use
