  • The latest build version for SharePoint server 2010 is 14.0.6117.5002 released as part of February 2012 Cumulative Update.

    It has two known issues:
    1. After you install this hotfix, you must restart the User Profile Synchronization Service for profile synchronization to function correctly.
    2. After you install the cumulative update package, you must run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard (PSConfigUI.exe). This wizard upgrades and updates the farm to the latest version. This step is required to make sure that you have full SharePoint functionality. The farm will run if you do not run PSConfigUI.exe. However, the farm will have reduced functionality. For example, the search function will be unable to index content.

    Answering the question is it recommended or not: Well, in a very ideal scenario it is recommended to have the enviroenment updated with the most latest fixes. But, however it is not alwaus the case.

    I would recommend to follow the following checklist to decide:

    1. Check the list of fixes part of the update
    2. If they seem relevant to your environement and very critical for you then go for it
    3. Additionally figure out any known issues with the update
    4. Finally weigh your options and take the plunge.
