Service Pack 2 for the SharePoint 2010 Product Family has been released today.

Below you can find the KB and download links:

SharePoint Server 2010 SP2




Office Server Language Pack SP2




SharePoint Foundation 2010 SP2




SharePoint Foundation 2010 Language Pack SP2




FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint SP2




Office Web Apps 2010 SP2




Project Server 2010 SP2




Search Server 2010 SP2




SharePoint 2010 Indexing Connector for Documentum SP2




SharePoint Designer 2010 SP2




SharePoint Foundation 2010 Client Object Model Redistributable SP2





Important: Be aware that June 2013 CU for SharePoint 2010 is a Post-SP2 CU. That means that SP2 does not include June 2013 CU. It does not matter if SP2 is installed before or after June 2013 CU - just be aware that in order to be on the latest patch level you need to have as well SP2 and June 2013 CU installed.

Update July 31st: It is recommended to install June 2013 CU before SP2. June 2013 CU might not correctly identify the SP2 baseline. If SP2 has already been installed and June CU does not install you need to wait for August CU which will correctly identify the SP2 baseline.

Related Info:

  • Per KB2687520, "after you upgrade the SharePoint Web Front End (WFE) from Windows Server 2008 (R2) to Windows Server 2012, certain SharePoint Designer-customized views that have custom XSL templates may be broken. Moreover, the update can compromise server responsiveness. To resolve this issue, you can install the SharePoint Server update from June 2013 or a later version Cumulative Update (CU) after you upgrade the operating system."

    So it would appear that the order of install (i.e., June 2013 CU AFTER SP2) does matter?

  • It states "after you upgrade the operating system" not "after you install SP2".

    It should not matter if SP2 is installed first or June 2013 CU.

  • Hi Stefan,

    This is exciting!

    One dumb question: could you tell me the version number after installing sp2?

    I installed it, and the number is still "14.0.7102.5004" which is CU 201306r2

  • Hi Eric, I'm not in the office right now, so I cannot look it up - but it would be a number lower than 7102.5004 as June CU is post SP2.

    So when installing SP2 after June will not change the version number as June CU contains newer fixes than SP2.

  • Hi Stefan,

    i look at the file size of Project Server 2010 SP2 and see it is about 450MB.

    Why it is so small hin relation to the cummulative updates?

  • Hi Joerg,

    service packs are only for one language - you need to install separate service packs for each language. CUs contain fixes for all language packs.



  • Hi Stefan,

    I installed clean version SharePoint 2010, then install SP2 for foundation and for server, after that try to install CU June 2013, after checking product version get next message:

    Expected version of the product was not found on system

  • Hi Stefan,

    when can we have the Sharepoint 2010 SP2 Full Iso? we need to install the product on Windows 2012 Server



  • Upgraded our dev farm to SP2 today, so far no nasty surprises. It seems they finally got around having to restart user profile sync service after installing an update and some other small bugs that have been in Sharepoint since SP1.

  • Having the same issue as Roman.

  • my customer has installed June 2013 and they haven't deployed SP2 yet. Here are the questions on SP2.

    1. Is it mandatory to apply SP2 for applying any future cumulative updates  ?

    2. Can customers apply any future CUs (eg: Aug CU 2013) and then later apply SP2 ?

    Thanks for clarifying the queries.



  • Hi Sowmyan,

    It is recommended to install SP2 as soon as possible - but not mandatory.

    SP1 will be supported for 12 month after SP2. So in the next 12 month you can install CUs either on SP1 or SP2.

    You can also install SP2 at any given time in the future over later CUs.



  • Hi Stefan,

    Does we need to install SP1 before SP2?

    Thanks, Roman

  • Hi Roman,

    our Service Packs are cumulative. You can install SP2 directly on RTM.



  • @Roman - I was able to get June '13 CU and Service Pack 2 installed by following these steps:

    1. If not yet done, Install SP1 + June 2011 CU

    2. Then install June 2013 CU

    3. Now you can install SP2 + any later released CU.

    But if there's a way to skip the June '11 CU portion of step #1, I would be grateful to someone indicating so.
