Exchange 2010 SP2 - RU7 - Update Applied.

We've successfully applied update Rollup 7 for Exch2010 SP2 to our environment (hosted exchange) using Cortex (CPSM). Before we started this process i researched the notes with the udpates (and the previous ones as well).
1) i disabled Notes and Tasks calendar processing on the mailbox sever

2) i am aware of the oreacle security hole that this udpate fixed.

3) We're using SSL offloading, and that is running though an ACE Load Balancer. All the settings are the same.
Everything seems to be in working order and i cant identify any issues with the install. Autodiscover, ActiveSYnc, Ews, Outlook Anywhere) etc. All seem to be fine.
My question is this: What changes are made to the IIS directories, ActiveDirectory or other Server Configurations? Is anything reset to defaults?  - I now my question is stupid .... But i was hoping for an exhaustive list (or something similar)

With Rollups nothing much changes. It changes with service pack upgrade. Like if you upgraded to SP3, then all SP2 binaries would be replaced, and if you have done any customization into bin folders or owa related etc that will be lost.

In your case nothing would be changed. so no worry. However make sure to keep all servers with same service pack and rollups, if you have more than one server.

Ok but will stuff like IIS vDIrs be reset? Will other configurations be reset? Am i correct that rollup is basically a collection of hotfixes and other patches?

Do you know if any microsoft links or documentation that provide more detauil on rollups vs service packs?

Ok.. THanks for the quick reponse. I reviewd the (SP2) version of that article and also this article here:

I guess thats about as close to a definitive answer i am going to get from msft.

Yes, that is the best answer for this question. You can also check my article written for SP2 upgrade:

Might help you. Same can be used for SP3 as well.

This was what I needed to re-focus on and was the info I was looking for. I didn't see any real  changes between the old files and the new files (I used beyond compare to compare the logon.aspx files from the older version (SP2 RU6=2) and the newer version (SP2 - RU7) - the only change was the version info.
