SharePoint 2013 CU update question RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to patch my SharePoint farm. I see that October CU is already out. Does october CU contain all the updates of march august or i have to install them before i go to october CU? Also has any service pack been released for SharePoint 2013 or windows server 2012. If yes where can i find them and which service pack is required to apply october CU?

  • You are required to install the March 2013 PU before you can install any following CUs. Once the March PU is installed any CU released since March will install. As CUs are cumulative, you only need to install the latest CU to receive all updates released since March 2013.

    SP1 for SharePoint 2013 has not yet been released. SharePoint 2013 is currently not supported on Windows Server 2012 R2 but will be as part of the SharePoint 2013 SP1 release.
