SharePoint 2013 October 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.

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!

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.

    Hi,

    "psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait" is not enough. blogs.technet.microsoft.com/.../why-i-prefer-psconfigui-exe-over-psconfig-exe

  2. Ups, you're right, I did not mention this important one, Thanks!

  3. Shawn says:

    Is this an uber patch? By "uber" I mean includes all previous CU's.

  4. The files to download contains uber, except the OWAS one.
