SharePoint 2010 Patch update RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on assignment to update Sharepoint 2010 Farm Servers ( app and WFE servers) Patch update from SP1 to latest one, which we have right now, can someone guide what should be the steps.

    Please correct me if I am wrong; that CU will include all the old patches update including SP2 ?

    Do I need to install Dec 2019 Updates ( is it the last and latest CU update available) or I have to install all the updates, as mentioned on this link for 2010 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/sharepoint-updates 


    Somewhere I find below steps for installing patch updates on SharePoint Servers, please correct me if I am wrong:

    1)  Download the CU and document the issues it is purported to resolve
    2)  Install the CU on a non-production environment FIRST and TEST IT!!
    3)  Prepare the production SharePoint environment
    4)  Document the production environment BEFORE patching
    5)  Dismount ALL SharePoint content databases
    6)  Install the CU on each farm server
    7)  Run PSConfig on all servers
    8)  Re-mount all content databases
    9)  Ensure ALL content databases have been re-mounted successfully
    10) Run content database upgrade script(s)
    11) Document the production SharePoint environment AFTER patching
    12) Verify production farm functionality

  • Bit easier:

    Download and install Service Pack 2 on all farm members.

    Download and install Dec 2019 CU on all farm members.

    Run Config Wizard.

    Note that if it won't let you install the Dec 2019 CU immediately after installing SP2, you'll need to run the Config Wizard on all members in the farm between those two download and install steps.

  • Hi SPDevadmin,

    The latest CU contains all the hotfixes and security updates that were included with the previous Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 update package releases.

    So you just need to install the latest one instead of all previous updates.

    To apply Dec 2019 Updates, we must have Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Service Pack 2 (SP2) installed.

    Please refer Trevor Seward’s reply to install SharePoint 2010 Service Pack 2 and December 2019 CU.

    Also refer these documents before you upgrade:
