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.
When you reached the download website, it is independent which language you chose, the packages are the same.
Plan to upgrade carefully, you may need more time in case the current patch level for your Farm is June 2015 or earlier! Reason is in regards to Search and psconfig. Please check the post from my colleague Stefan!
SharePoint Foundation 2013
3055004 The full server package for SharePoint Foundation 2013
SharePoint Server 2013
3054937 The full server package for SharePoint Server 2013 and contains also the SharePoint Foundation 2013 fixes so you need only this package.
Office Web Apps Server 2013
3055003 Microsoft Office Web Apps Server 2013 hotfix package
Project Server 2013
3055005 The full server package for Project Server 2013 and contains also the SharePoint Server and Foundation 2013 fixes so you need only this package.
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.
As soon as possible (in case patch level of your Farm is June 2015 or earlier) after you installed the binaries, run the psconfig! Reasons are here.
