Installation of updates 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I plan to install updates on SharePoint 2016.
    The steps are as follows:
    1. Create a backup of the farm and databases;
    2. Install updates for SharePoint;
    3. Disable the distributed cache service;
    4. Disable search service
    5. Applying updates using PSCONFIG.EXE -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd installfeatures -cmd secureresources -cmd services -install;
    6. After applying the update, I perform the update using the script (https://docs.microsoft.com/ru-ru/sharepoint/upgrade-and-update/update-workflow-in-sharepoint-server-2013);
    9. Turn all services back;

    Which services should I disable before installing updates?
    Updates have not been made for a long time. Can I install immediately in 2019 or should I put everything in 2018?

  • Hi Nabi05,

    Per my experience, we will not disable the service before installing the updates in SharePoint 2016.

    And you should check the system requirement and install instructions of the updates.

    You could install the latest CU for SharePoint 2016. And there is no need to install all 2018 CUs.

    By default, the latest CU will contain previous CUs.
