Central Admin - Product / patch installation or server upgrade required.

    Question

  • Dears,

    I often see this error in the Central Admin - Product / patch installation or server upgrade required.

    Upon viewing the error this is shown -

    Title                 Product / patch installation or server upgrade required. 
    Severity          1 - Error 
    Category         Configuration 
    Explanation      All required products must be installed on all servers in the farm, and all products should have the same patching and upgrade level across the farm.
    
    Upgrade is required on server <server1>. Without the upgrade, the server is not in a supported state.
    
    Upgrade is required on server <serve2>. Without the upgrade, the server is not in a supported state.
    
    Upgrade is required on server <server3>. Without the upgrade, the server is not in a supported state.
    
    Upgrade is required on server <server4>. Without the upgrade, the server is not in a supported state. 
    
    Remedy       
    On server <Server1>, once all required products and/or patches are installed, perform an upgrade by either running PSConfigUI.exe or by executing the command "PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd installfeatures". 
    If a former upgrade attempt has failed, you may need to resolve upgrade specific issues before attempting upgrade again. 
    Refer to the upgrade status page (http://<Server2>:17234/_admin/UpgradeStatus.aspx) for information about current and prior upgrade attempts, and to determine issues that may be preventing upgrade from succeeding.
    
    similar message for other mentioned servers.

    If I goto 'Severs in the farm', status shows as "Upgrade Required".

    However if I go to "Check product and patch installation status" I see all the patches are installed on all servers (something like this)-

    Nowhere it says update required or Patch missing.

    Also, this error suddenly comes up out of the blue. No upgrade done, no patch installed since November. 

    Any reason for this error's appearance randomly.

  • Thanks All ! 

    Now suddenly out of the blue, the error has disappeared all by its own. SURPRISINGLY...

    I did not do any thing except running the command mentioned by Grace. 

    this has happened in the past as well. The error starts to appear suddenly. Stays there for some time and then goes away.

    I am not sure of the cause as to why this happens.

  • Hi IMSunny,

    You can run "stsadm.exe -o localupgradestatus > e:\UpgradeStatus.txt" command, search the text file if there are objects "needs upgrade".

    Best regards,

  • Hi IMSunny.

    Did you execute the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard (whose executable file name is PSConfigUI.exe) after installing the SharePoint 2010 updates? This step is mandatory after installing any SharePoint 2010 update in order to correctly re-configure the SharePoint farm.

    Bye.

  • Dear Luigi,

    Ours is SharePoint 2013 environment. Moreover I did not do any updates since November last year and until a few days back, this error was not there. 

    However still, I did run the psconfig command post CU update, which ran successfully.

  • Hi IMSunny,

    Try to Run “Get-SPProduct -Local” on all of the servers in your farm to update the installed products in the Configuration database, then re-run Products Configuration Wizard, check if the issue exists.

  • Hi Grace,

    The point is If there has been no update to the SharePoint farm. What's  the need to run the config wizard? Moreover as shown in the image capture, everything under Products and patch installations is INSTALLED. So why this error?

    Since this is a PROD environment, I cannot run PSConfig straight up.

    Output of Get-SPProduct -Local ----------

    ProductName                    Required   Missing              Servers
    -----------                    --------   -------              -------
    Microsoft SharePoint Server... True                            {}

  • Are you sure? No security patches for SharePoint pushed down automatically?

    You can also check Programs and Features -> View installed updates, then look for the SharePoint product category for when patches were last applied. Lastly, try this script to see what is missing from where: https://github.com/Nauplius/SharePointProductInformation

  • Hello Trevor,

    I am pretty sure. I checked the same through Programs and Features as well. Last update was done in Nov. Below is the output from the script you suggested.

    I ran the script 3 times (1 each for Name, IsLatest and Patch) to get complete information without loss of text in the PSConsole.

    Thanks for your help on this topic.

  • Hi IMSunny,

    You can run "stsadm.exe -o localupgradestatus > e:\UpgradeStatus.txt" command, search the text file if there are objects "needs upgrade".

    Best regards,

  • Hi Grace,

    I ran this command on one of the servers and there were a few entries of "needs upgrade". Here are those -

    <object>
        <name>Operation Q &amp; A</name>
        <type>Microsoft.SharePoint.SPWeb</type>
        <level>7</level>
        <status>Needs Upgrade</status>
    </object>
    <object>
        <name>Operation Q &amp; A</name>
        <type>Microsoft.SharePoint.SPWeb</type>
        <level>7</level>
        <status>Needs Upgrade</status>
    </object>
    <object>
        <name>http://mysite.xxx.com/personal/taran_akhde</name>
        <type>Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite</type>
        <level>6</level>
        <status>Needs Upgrade</status>
    </object>
    <object>

  • Although you didn't patch/update your farm since November, But the 'Product/patch installation or server upgrade required' issue may be raised because of the Microsoft / Windows update (that include the SharePoint security fixes) is enabled and applied on one or all servers but you didn't schedule to run SharePoint Configuration wizard on all servers across the farm.

    So I suggest tracing your issue by running the Get-SPProduct -Local cmdlet on all affected server as an easy fix in many situations to update the installed products in the Configuration database.

    If the issue still persists, try to check all possible scenarios at my article HEALTH ANALYZER ISSUE: PRODUCT/PATCH INSTALLATION OR SERVER UPGRADE REQUIRED.

  • Thanks All ! 

    Now suddenly out of the blue, the error has disappeared all by its own. SURPRISINGLY...

    I did not do any thing except running the command mentioned by Grace. 

    this has happened in the past as well. The error starts to appear suddenly. Stays there for some time and then goes away.

    I am not sure of the cause as to why this happens.
