SharePoint 2013 Cumulative Update (October 2013) Order of Installation on App & Web Servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    While configuring cumulative updates for SharePoint 2013 on App and WFE Servers can we install CU on both App and WFE servers simultaneously? Or we should complete the installation on App Server first and then move to the Web server?

    I'm already done with the March Update and first installed the update on App Server then did the same on Web Server. PSConfig executed successfully and now I am going to install October CU. However, in order to save time can we configure CU on both at the same time. Will it cause any issues or problems?

    What would be the safe and correct approach?

    Thanks, 

    Haider

  • you can run the CU on all server simultaneously( all servers at the same time), but for the config wizard start from the App server 1st( 1 server at a time).

  • The order the Config Wizard does not matter, it can be run on any server in any order you wish.

    I am not disagree with you but That's what was told us By MSFT, all the time run the Config wizard on the App server to avoid the issue we had in environment.
