Batch File to Slipstream Service Pack (SP) and Cumulative Updates (CU) for MOSS 2007 or SharePoint 2010

Nov

 « »    

I perform a lot of SharePoint installs. I like to Slipstream both the Service Pack and the Cumulative Updates before I begin an install. In the zip file you find the batch file and links to the latest MOSS 2007 and SharePoint 2010 Service Packs. I will keep this zip file up to date when new Service Packs and Cumulative Updates come out.

Prerequisites

  • Create folder and drop in the base installation binaries of MOSS/SharePoint (i.e. C:\Software\SharePoint2010base)
  • Create folder and drop in the 4 updates (2 SP’s and 2 CU’s) (i.e. C:\Software\SP2010Updates)

Setting Variables

You have to set 7 variables in the batch file. First we need to set file paths

  • UpdatesPath = Set UpdatesPath to the location of the 4 update files
  • LogFilesPath = Set LogFilesPath to the location where you want the log file
  • BaseInsPath = Set BaseInsPath to the “Updates” folder of extracted SP 2007/2010 Install

Next we need to set the EXE names of the Service Packs and the Cumulative Updates

  • WSSSP = Set WSSSP to the EXE name of your Foundation or WSS SP file
  • ServerSP = Set ServerSP to the EXE name of your Server 2007 or 2010 SP file
  • WSSCU = Set WSSCU to the EXE name of your foundation or WSS CU file
  • ServerCU = Set ServerCU to the EXE name of your Server 2007 or 2010 CU file

Verification

By default the “Updates” folder in the directory containing the base installation does not have any files in it. Once the 4 files are extracted you should have a little over 900 files. In this case my “Updates” was about 2.04 GB when I slip-streamed SP1 and the October 2011 CU’s for SharePoint 2010.
