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.
Is that free or would I have to pay for support to get this resolved?
Depends. If it is a Problem with the patch or our product it would be free. If it is a configuration Problem on your box then it will be charged.
ok I can definitely prove that patch cause my issue. I will proceed to support now
Simple question. Is SharePoint 2010 SP2 supported on Windows 2012? Is there any other patch we need to install on top of this to get it working on Windows 2012? I need a clear and crisp answer.
SP2 is supported on Windows 2012. If you upgrade the OS of an SP2010 Installation, then ensure to have SP2 installed. If you need to install SP2010 directly on Windows 2012 you need the slipstream Installation of SP2010 with SP2.
Hi Stefen ,
we are on April 2013 CU . we do found some issues in August 2013 CU
Can we install just SP2 and wait for next stable release ?
sure you can just install SP2.
Btw: October 2013 CU has been released recently.
You might want to evaluate it.
Stefan, I have read your post (that is great!) and the comments as well. As I got it, In short, at present, would the following steps be right for a clean installation of SharePoint Server 2010 SP2 over Windows Server 2008 R2 machine?
3. October 2013 CU
Thank you in advance.
yes that sequence is correct.
