Steps To Install CU Updates?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello SharePoint Fam,

    I am totally new with CU updates but would like to begin to start updating when these new releases come available.  I am wanting to at least install February CU but not 100% sure how to do this.  i see that there is a executable file for February  SP2010 Server, is it as simple as simply loading the exe on all servers and running or is there a process to go by to be safe?  My environment is 1webserver, 1appserver, 1dbserver.

    Thanks for any help!!!

  • Hello,

    Microsoft has created a nice whitepaper for SharePoint 2010 concerning the installation of updates, patches and servicepacks.

    I think most information is still valid for SharePoint 2013

  • General steps are:

    Install the Cumulative Update on all servers in the farm (this really goes for most SharePoint updates, as well).

    Run the Config Wizard on all servers in the farm.

    After that, in Central Administration, go to Application Management -> Manage servers in farm and all servers should show that they have no action required (for updates).

  • thanks so much!!! I thought it was a long drawn out process possibly.  Glad to hear that it is pretty simple and just a process of running the exe files on each server.  Do I need to turn off IIS or anything at all before installing the exe files on the servers or can i simply just download and install away on each server as is with everything still running???  Enviornment has around 6k users.

    Thanks!!!
