  • I am not sure that the level of detail you are asking for exists.  Rollup 3 is fairly easy to install and I have not run into any issues yet with the exception of making a manual update to the config file on one installation.  If you need it, you can find information about the steps to complete in my threads.

    Planning Activities

    Download all of the required files to SQL and CRM server
    backup your database
    backup your customization file by exporting it

    Install the updates, reboot servers and rollout the update to the client machines.

    The update is fairly straightforward and quickly deployed
    Best Regards, Donna
