Best way to Patch SharePoint Server 2016 that has not been patched since June 2017 RRS feed

  • 질문

  • We are planning to patch our SharePoint environment to the latest patch level, however we have doubts that we can directly patch the latest CU.

    What is the best approach to patch the SharePoint environment that has not been patched for more than 2 years? In our case, we have not patched since June 2017.

    We are planning to patch our QA environment starting next week so I would like to collect as much information as possible to get this patching process go smoothly.

    Questions

    1. What is the best approach to patch? Meaning, since the last patch was on June 2017 should I patch July 2017, then Oct 2017, then Jan 2017 etc.... How do I determine which patch I should do next, validate, and move to the next patch?

    2. What do we have to test after the each patching is done? What would be the validation checklist?

    3. What are some resources we can leverage for patching 2016 Server? (Currently I am referring to https://www.toddklindt.com/blog/Builds/SharePoint-2016-Builds.aspx)

    Regards,

  • You can directly install the latest CU, there won't be any problems just follow the link you shared, i would say install atleast one month old CU not the latest because if the latest CU has any issues you will face them that's why it's better to install a month old CU and check that CU has any bugs after patching.

  • Hi Prabinesh,

    As Sharath said, you can directly install the latest CU for the SharePoint environment, and use the link to find the required CU.

    To check if the CU installed successfully, you can check the following points( maybe it’s not complete but these are basic points):

    • Make sure SharePoint build Number change to new.
    • Make Sure all server in farm saying no action required.
    • Make Sure All Databases(Content & Services & Config) status must be No Action required.
    • Make Sure Time Services & Admin Services is running on all server.
    • App Pools are running on all server.
    • Make Sure all web apps are up and running.
    • Make Sure the all the required Services are running.
    • Run the User Profile Sync.
    • Run the Search Crawl.
    • Test the Basic operations of SharePoint:

               Create a new site collection

               Create new subsite

               Add / remove users

               Create new workflow, run the existing workflows.

               Test the alerts.

               Upload & Delete file

               Check in / check out files

               Publish a page

               Other functionality which you use a lot

    • If you an customization, then test it is placed and functionality available. i.e solution deployment, web.config changes etc.
