    Possibly a stupid question:

    Would it be wise to take a back-up with a back-up solution or will a normal back-up of servers suffice?

    Hi Aryan, I am about to install SP3 on my MOSS 2007 environment shortly. Its currently running at SP1. On some other website I saw that the procedure to apply SP2 is to detach the content databases on all my web applications before applying SP2. Here is that website: http://blogs.architectingconnectedsystems.com/blogs/cjg/archive/2009/05/10/How-to-upgrade-to-SharePoint-2007-SP2-_2D00_-Step-by-Step.aspx

    My question is, when applying SP3, would I need to detach content databases or can I just run the WSS and MOSS SP3 packages directly on each on my WFE servers with the content DBs attached?
