How to install update packages on a SharePoint farm where search component and high availability search topologies are enabled


Previous releases of the SharePoint Server 2013 cumulative update included both the executable and the .CAB file in the same self-extracting executable download. Based on the file size, the SharePoint Server 2013 package has been now divided into several separate downloads. One contains the executable file (identified as i.e. ubersrv2013kbxxxxxfullfilex64glb), while the other contains the .CAB file (identified as i.e. ubersrv1,…2  etc.). All of them are necessary and must be extracted to the same folder to successfully install the update. All of them are available by clicking the Download link in the KB article for the release.

Further Information:
As usual, you need to run the SharePoint 2013 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm after installing the packages.

  • The Project Server Packs containing both, so if you install this one, no need for the other two to install additional
