Since the August 31, 2011 Cumulative Update, it is no longer required to install the Share Point Foundation Cumulative Update before proceeding with Share Point Server Cumulative Updates.This greatly eases the burden of applying Cumulative Updates and Service Packs.The question that follows is always, “how do I get the [Calculated Today] to update every day or on a scheduled basis?
I have decided to replicate my External List to a native Share Point list and create a Power Shell script to automate the process.
Some comments from the Community show that there are some known issues with the class under certain conditions. So far, I’ve tested it for registering a new Http Module and it has worked successfully, reducing deployment times considerably.
There has been much discussion around using a [TODAY] column in Share Point Lists since Share Point Lists and Libraries have been around.
I would treat a Service Pack the same way in that you would wait until a CU is released after the Service Pack before proceeding.
Please note that updates tend to be cumulative from a certain level of Service Pack.
