SharePoint 2013 May 2015 CU


Our SharePoint product group released the next monthly cumulative updates. How patching works for SharePoint 2013? Read more in the post from my colleague Stefan.

New since April 2015:

  • You need to have SP1 installed!
  • In case you have installed a SP1 slipstream version, please read the article from my colleague Stefan!!!
  • Search enabled Farm, please check as well this article.

The format how we are providing the Cumulative Update packages has changed this cy, means you can find all packages on our Download Center.

Important for all Server Applications listed above:
After applying the preceding updates, run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard or “psconfig –cmd upgrade –inplace b2b -wait” in command line. This needs to be done on all servers in the farm with SharePoint installed. You can run psconfig in parallel on all SharePoint machines.

You might have you own strategy to run psconfig because it depends on the farm structure and what makes sense to reduce the downtime.

    Ironically, the MSDN Subscriber download image (iso) is 15.4569.1000 and not 15.4569.1506; the May CU wants the server at the 1506 build, not surprising, but you'd have to have slipstreamed the install source to pull this off in the least amount of time. Is replacing the iso on MSDN so difficult?
