Pointing upKnown issue 1
After you install this hotfix, you must restart the User Profile Synchronization Service for profile synchronization to work correctly.

To work around this issue, follow these steps:

  1. Visit Central Administration.
  2. Click Manage Services on the System Settings section.
  3. Find User Profile Synchronization Service in the list of services and then click Stop if its status is Started. Click Start and provide the credentials to start the User Profile Synchronization Service as soon as its status is Stopped.

Light bulbNote

This is build 14.0.6109.5005 of the cumulative update package.
I would recommend that you test hotfixes before you deploy them in a production environment. Take necessary backups before attempting to upgrade.

Because the builds are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and security updates that were included with the previous update package releases.

High fiveHow to Deploy Aug 2010 CU Updates?

Earlier there were different camps recommending different approaches.  SharePoint folks recommend applying SPF and then SPS updates. If in doubt, I would suggest a blended/safe approach;

  • First of all, ensure your system is at SP1 level
  • Then apply (SharePoint Foundation 2010 Aug CU) + (SharePoint Server 2010 Aug CU) + (Project Server 2010 Aug CU)

Obviously, you don't need to deploy SharePoint Server or Project Server updates if you are running only SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Observe the best practice of updating the binaries first (on all web/app servers, one at a time) and then upgrade by running the SharePoint Config Wizard (on all web/app servers, one at a time starting with the one hosting the Central Administration). Some of you have asked for some detailed steps and this will follow next week.
