Is it necessary to upgrade SharePoint CU august 2013 to SharePoint SP1 before upgradering to SharePoint September 2015 CU? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I would like to upgrade my SharePoint build version to the SharePoint 2013 - CU september 2015 (KB2986213).

    The prerequisite I can find is that Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 Service Pack 1 must be installed before installing this CU.

    If I run a (GET-SPFARM).BUILDVERSION command, I get the result:

    Major: 15

    Minor: 0

    Build: 4535

    Revision: 1000

    According to https://buildnumbers.wordpress.com/sharepoint/ - this buildnumber is August 2013 CU - which is close to SharePoint SP1, but just below the version number of SP1.

    Is it correct that I have to upgrade my SharePoint farm to SP1 before I can upgrade to SharePoint CU September 2015?

    Kind regards,
