Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 – RU3

Okay that was a smoother installation than I expected.  So Ari recommended using this from the command prompt

Exchange2007-KB949870-x64-EN.msp /quiet /lxv* KB949870.log

I Did bit found it a bit scarey that you get no feedback on what is happening so I tried /passive instead. 

But what I did find was this in the Application event log when the rollup was applied:

Event Type: Information
Event Source: MsiInstaller
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1022
Product: Microsoft Exchange Server – Update ‘Update Rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (KB949870)’ installed successfully.

Another check is to use Add/Remove programs, check the “show updates” and then under “Microsoft Exchange Server 2007”, you should see “Update Rollup 3 for Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1(KB949870)

Essentially you can query the subkeys for this: SOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionInstallerUserDataS-1-5-18Products461C2B4266EDEF444B864AD6D9E5B613Patches
