More #SharePoint / #ProjectServer 2010 Service Pack 2 details #SP2010 #PS2010
So I see my fellow bloggers Paul and Khurram posted about Service Pack 2 for SharePoint and Project Server 2010.
Having looked around the blog-o-sphere, I came across some extra information that I believe will be useful to all:
Known issues when you install Office 2010 SP2 and SharePoint 2010 SP2
In particular if you are installing Office 2010 SP2 on Windows Server 2003 (SP2) you will need to install this patch first: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925336
For SharePoint Server SP2 on Windows Server 2008 R2, you need to be careful of your custom XSL views from SharePoint Designer. Apparently they break but the fix is already available and it is recommended to install the June 2013 CU (or later) on top of the SP2
Links for June 2013 CU for SharePoint 2010:
The Full Server Packages for June 2013 CU are available through the following links:
- Download SharePoint Foundation 2010 June 2013 CU
- Download SharePoint Server 2010 June 2013 CU
- Download SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server June 2013 CU
After installing the fixes you need to run the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm.
Locations of all the SP2 download packages around SharePoint, Project Server, FAST, Office Web Apps, Office 2010 products etc…
Next up is that we of course need to consider the different products that we have installed in our farms. Do we have FAST or Office Web Apps?

Further links are available here, including Office, Project, Visio, SharePoint Designer and the CSOM binaries:
- I haven’t seen a service pack 2 for the language packs yet, but will update if it comes up soon.
Changes for SharePoint / Office 2010 SP2 that are not in Cumulative / Public Updates
Handily Microsoft have also released a spreadsheet detailing the changes and additions as part of Service Pack 2. Be aware that these are not included in any previous CU / PU.
Ok, hopefully you will all find the above useful. Till the next time…
