Yesterday the product group released the August 2010 Cumulative Update for the SharePoint 2007 and 2010 product family.
The KB articles are not yet available (as usual it will take a couple more days to get these through the required release process) but the fixes can already be downloaded.
As soon as the KB articles are live they can be found at the following locations:
As you see there is a separate Full Server Package for SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server which simplifies patching of this common installation.
The Full Server Packages for August 2010 CU can be downloaded here:
After installing the fixes you need to run the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm.
For more details on SharePoint updates have a look at the Update Center for Microsoft Office, Office Servers, and Related Products.
I'm a little confused by the Aug 2010 cumulative. The file sizes are 35mb and 51mb respectively. But the June 2010 cumulative file sizes are 83mb and 407mb! This would imply to me that Aug requires June. What am I missing?
thats the benefit of the support lifecycle! As support for SP1 has ended - which means that all supported machines now have to be on SP2 - hotfix packages don't have to include the fixes between SP1 and SP2 anymore.
So the smaller files are a result of the new SP2 baseline for August CU.

there is an issue with this specific fix. It will be reuploaded in the next days. If you need the fix meanwhile you can request it through your normal support channels.
the issue has been resolved and the fix can now be downloaded.
I received a couple of comments related to installation problems for these hotfixes.
If you have problems to install one of these hotfixes, please open a support case with Microsoft Support to get them analyzed individually.
If I have installed SharePoint 2010 on a new server but not run the config wizard, do I need to do that first at least once before I can apply the Aug 2010 CU? Or, can I install the Foundation and Server CU's and then run the wizard for the first time?
In the past (with MOSS 07), some updates wouldn't install unless you had created at least one web app and root site collection.
it is sufficient to run the wizzard once at the end after you installed all fixes.
The same applies with MOSS 2007. If you have a diffferent experience, please open a support case and report it as this is not expected.
Do I have to install SharePoint Foundation 2010 August 2010 CU prior to SharePoint Server 2010 August 2010 CU?
yes you should install August CU for SPF before installing the Server fix.
Is this the only additional fix from the June update to the August update?
2352452 (support.microsoft.com/.../2352452 ) Description of the SharePoint Server 2010 hotfix package (spsmui-fr-fr): August 31, 2010
There was a pretty long list in the June update, but only one seems to be listed for the August one.
please read the KBs listed above. You will find the 2352452 is included in 2352342 and 2352345.
The packages above are "Uber" packages containing many different individual fixes.
Is there a way to get a list of all the fixes? I didn't see it listed in 2352345. Maybe I missed it.... thanks
I did not collect the whole list as the above fixes contain all.
as usual there will be a service pack after a while incorporating all previous hotfixes and defining a new baseline for future fixes.
