You do NOT need to install the SPF CU before installing the SharePoint Server CU as of 2011-08-31

Yes, yes, I know.  I'm only about 4 months behind on this revelation, but it came and went without too much fan fare.  Something that so radically changes the way we apply Cumulative Updates for SharePoint, deserves a special footnote.  Consider this post as such.

We bid farewell to Long drawn out explanations to clients as to why they have to install the Foundation CU before installing the Server CU when they have the Server product installed.  I can't tell you how many times I've had to explain and then re-explain this to admins.  The concept is confusing and I'm glad it's finally been rectified.  Per the Updates for SharePoint 2010 Products site:

"As a result of the new packaging, it is no longer necessary to install the SharePoint Foundation cumulative update and then install the SharePoint Server cumulative update." - SharePoint Product Team

This is indeed great news.  To be clear, it's only for 2010 products.  Of course, Microsoft has discontinued the release of 2007 product CUs last year and that is probably what helped springboard the new approach to bundling the updates.

Whatever triggered it, I just want to say THANK YOU to the SharePoint Product Team for making life just a little easier... now if we can work on that CU rollback plan.Winking smile




The same (unfortunately) does not apply to the Service packs - You need to install both the Foundation SP, then the Server SP. This is where I saw the info first...
