August 2013 CU for SharePoint 2010 has been released

August 2013 CU for SharePoint 2010 has been released

The product group released the August 2013 Cumulative Update for the SharePoint 2010 product family.

Be aware that the August Cumulative Update for SharePoint 2010 is a Post-SP1 hotfix. That means that you should ensure that SP1 is installed before the August CU.

The KB articles for August CU are availabe at the following locations:

  • KB 2825990 - SharePoint Foundation 2010
  • KB 2825949 - SharePoint Server 2010
  • KB 2825959 - SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server
    As you see there is a separate Full Server Package for SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server which simplifies patching of this common installation.

The Full Server Packages for August 2013 CU are available through the following links:

Be aware that the SharePoint Server 2010 CU contains the SharePoint Foundation CU. And the SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server CU contains Project Server CU, SharePoint Server CU and SharePoint Foundation CU.
That means only one package has to be installed for the SharePoint 2010 product family.

  • Hi Jason,

    you should NEVER use the Bypass check if not advised by Microsoft Support.

    The check is there for good reason.

    If you install the fix on a System using the Bypass check you are actually installing dlls on a box which do not fix to the other dlls which are from an incompatible patch Level.

    E.g. you will get the Problem if you have a System on RTM trying to install a fix from Post SP2.

    If you now install the fix using the Bypass Setting you have a mix of RTM and Post-SP2 dlls on the box which cannot work together.

    The check verifies if all components are on a compatible patch Level and prevent installing the fix.

    Please open a Support case to get your System checked as I assume you have now an incompatible mix of DLLs on a box.

    Cheers,

    Stefan

  • Stefan,

    I have the same issue with the August CU. I have installed it on one Server when I install it on the other server on the same farm it gives me the error "The expected version of the product was not found on the system" . Please help, I'm already on SP2 for both servers.

  • Hi Sam,

    this is a common error if one of the following applies:

    - SP2 has been installed for SharePoint Foundation but not for SharePoint Server

    - SP2 has not been installed for all language packs

    - SP2 for the SharePoint foundation edition of a language pack has been installed but not for the Server product

    Cheers,

    Stefan

  • Stefan,

    On both servers I have installed Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 with Service Pack 2 for Microsoft SharePoint 2010 (KB2687453) 64-Bit Edition. When I browse to Central Administration > Manage Patch Status  it shows that SERVER1 has the "Hotfix for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 (KB2825949) 64-Bit Edition" installed and  SERVER2 Instal Status : Missing/Required. This is one farm with Two WFE servers LB

  • Hi Sam,

    please check this article for details:

  • Stefan,

    I have went through the Site you provided a link for with no luck. I have ran the tool recommended on that site to check the imbalances of the updates and for the logs results, the difference between the two servers is the August CU nothing else. kindly assist on this as my farm is not balanced with the Updates.

  • Hi Sam,

    then please open a support case with Microsoft to get your issue analyzed.

    Cheers,

    Stefan

  • Stefan,

    Thank u, I have managed to install it bypassing the version check step. I know its not a recommended procedure but hey this was giving me sleepless nights and a headache.

    Cheers

  • Hi Sam,

    you should have sleepless nights now: using the bypass option you potentially installed incompatible components on your farm which do not fit to the other installed components.

    In worst case this can cause database inconsistencies if the database schema does not fit or exceptions.

    Cheers,

    Stefan

  • Do you know if you can install SP2 and October 2013 CU at the same time before running the upgrade(Configuration Wizard) portion?

  • Hi Stephen,

    PSCONFIG is only required after installing the last patch. That's also true when installing a service pack and a CU.

    Cheers,

    Stefan

  • Hi Stefan. A few months ago, Microsoft published a page that tracked all of the SharePoint 2010 cumulative updates. I noticed that the page has been remove. Are you aware of another page that tracks the updates in a similar fashion? Thanks.

  • Hi Melissa,

    do you mean this page: http://technet.microsoft.com/library/dn789211(v=office.14)?

    Cheers,
    Stefan
