Default Installing Service Pack 4

Please Login to Remove!

I'm scheduling an update for our BES server tomorrow with SP4 and am wondering if there's a checklist out there I should do first or is it simply just copying the .exe file to the server and then just running it?

Thanks!

I always make a copy of my database (.mdf and .ldf files) before I install and hotfixes or service packs, but we're using MSDE.

The server is backed up every day so I think I should be okay.

It depends from what version you come. It is always good to read the quickstart/installation guide first. Just extract all files with subdirectories in the exe and go to docs directory.

Default Not good to back database up directly w/o SQL Agent

Concerning the backup of your database. Performing a direct backup of any database runs the risk of causing corruption to the database. It is recommended to either use an SQL Agent or install the SQL Enterprise Management console and use it to schedule a maintenance backup of the database. In the latter solution exclude the database folder from the Server Backup Job and just backup the the Maintenance Backup files performed by SQL Enterprise Manager. The SQL Enterprise Manager will work for MSDE as well. A corrupt database will result in loss of BES service.
