I have a dual-server set up. Questions:

1. Should I upgrade the application tier server first Or it does not matter

2. Do I need to shut down TFS first before installing the TFS Quiescence GDR (KB919156)

3. After KB919156, do I need to bring up all the services and application pool of TFS before going to do the SP1 upgrade

Thanks.

2. Do I need to shut down TFS first before installing the TFS Quiescence GDR (KB919156) -- I do know that should make sure that TFS services are not listening to any requests. I killed my services just to be safe.

3. After KB919156, do I need to bring up all the services and application pool of TFS before going to do the SP1 upgrade -- I did and the upgrade was fine.

Hope this helps to get you going. I am not sure on Question 1 as I did this on a single server install.
