Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

OK here is a little problem you might eventually come across if you are running stsadm backups.

Fact is stsadm backups are version dependant. Now initially I assumed that it was only service packs that affect sharepoint's version, but apparently even security updates count too.

Sharath points out a few tips on one of my previous blog posts.

Thankfully there arent many patches for SharePoint.

I thought it *might* be even Security Pack dependent but I wasn't sure.
Now the question is - can you tell from the version number that the Security Pack has been installed ??

Currently an assumption, but I think the restore should be backward compatible, i.e. a fully patched SharePoint box should be able to restore from an older version of the backup.

I believe you can
e.g. - no security fix instaleld - with fix installed

SharePoint is not backward compatible, you need to restore to the same version that was backed up.
