Installing multiple CU together on SP2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I would like to ask whether multiple CU updates (E.g. July 2014 and Sept 2014 CU) can be installed at one go then run the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard?

    Example:

    1. SP2010 APP install July 2014. Restart server if prompt
    2. SP2010 WFE install July 2014. Restart server if prompt
    3. SP2010 APP install Sept 2014. Restart server if prompt
    4. SP2010 WFE install Sept 2014. Restart server if prompt
    5. SP2010 APP run Configuration Wizard
    6. SP2010 WFE run Configuration Wizard

    Thanks in advance.

  • You just need to install the Sept 2014 CU. CUs are cumulative, they contain the previous CU's fixes.

  • Whoops, you're correct. Yep, just install the Sept 2014 CU, run the Config Wizard and you're all set. The same concept of a CU applies to both 2010 and 2013.

  • The SharePoint server last patched CU is Aug 2013 and I'm required to patch up to CU Sept 2014. Do this mean I only require to install CU Sept 2014 only? This include all the old patches?

    Is there any Microsoft document that stated about this?

    Thanks.

  • If you're on August 2013, make sure you apply Service Pack 1 prior to applying the Sept CU. Order can be this:

    1) Apply SP1 to all servers

    2) Apply Sept CU to all servers

    3) Run Config Wizard on all servers

    Here's a link about updates:

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff806329(v=office.15)

    A CU is a rollup update that contains all previous critical on-demand hotfixes to date. Additionally, a CU contains fixes for issues that meet the hotfix acceptance criteria. These criteria may include the availability of a workaround, the effect on the customer, the reproducibility of the problem, the complexity of the code that must be changed, or other reasons.

  • Hi, I think you are referring to SharePoint 2013 server. My SharePoint 2010 server are installed with SP2 and August 2013 CU.
