SharePoint 2010 Build Numbers (Cube Sheet)


SharePoint 2010 Build Numbers Cube Sheet

As many times used in our daily business, we’re used to ask for “Build number” rather than “Service Pack or Patch level”.
Because of some confusion of the customers and for transparency I’ll provide here a list of the most relevant Build numbers and its related KB Numbers.

Quick Jump list:

Bildergebnis für notice  Note:
The bits of RTM version are shown in central admin page with Build number “14.0.4762.1000” but it’s actually “14.0.4763.1000” - So no worry about 😉
In case of early publishing, some KB article might not be available right away while the download links already working. Please consider, that delay’s in publishing the according KB articles will be expected!

)1 = in the KB articles for the October 2013 CU there is the Build Number 14.0.7110.5000 mentioned but after installing the Oct. 2013 CU, you'll find the Build Version 14.0.7108.5000 shown in the central admin.
If you want to be sure that you have installed the right CU/Version, see here for more info about it:

Due to early posting, sometimes the KB-articles and Descriptions for the updates are not directly working!
So please expect some delay in final publishing of the KB's!  But the Download Links should work almost immediately!

As usual, the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard or "psconfig –cmd upgrade –inplace b2b -wait” should be executed on every server in the farm following the update installation.

==> List of all SharePoint 2010 and Office Server 2010 SP1 packages


Background Information of Cumulative Update (CU)

Cumulative update packages for Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 and Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 containing hotfixes for the issues that were fixed since the release of SharePoint foundation and SharePoint Server 2010. ´
They are sometimes also called “Uber Package”.

After applying the preceding updates, run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard or “psconfig –cmd upgrade –inplace b2b -wait” in command line.
This needs to be done on all servers in the farm with SharePoint 2010 installed.
As usually, you should start with the server, hosting the central admin and finishing it there, after all other servers has been updated as well!
The other servers now can run the psconfig wizard in parallel (on MOSS we had to run them sequentially, one by one).

Please see also here for more general info: Common Question: What is the difference between a PU, a CU and a COD?
See also "SharePoint patching demystified"


Recommended Update sequence of packages:

As commented by the escalation folks at Microsoft, it should be sufficient to apply only the SharePoint Server2010 “Uber” packages (aka MOSS14; SPS2010) as these contains the SharePoint Foundation packages (aka WSSv4; MSF2010) as well. But still there is a recommendation to stick on the "old common" approach...

Resource: SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Foundation 2010 - Updates | TechNet

Extract:
Best practice (this is my opinion and is the result of daily support challenges and issues, that are related to this process!)

For any given build you may find that it is not necessary to install a SharePoint Foundation 2010 update before you install a SharePoint Server 2010 update. This flexibility in the installation sequence is part of the software update system design. However, there might be times where it is necessary to remove this flexibility in order to properly fix a specific issue.

As per this Link now: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/ff800847.aspx
"...it is no longer necessary to install the SharePoint Foundation cumulative update and then install the SharePoint Server cumulative update."

Well yes, its true and you can do so if it is more applicable for your Environment. but I still may recommend to follow as above to keep the best consistency for any updates as well for future.
But yeah, if you don't want to go the extra step, for common CU updates, the server package (SharePoint) or the full Project Server package suffices all your needs, 😉

Installing language packs on the Web servers
After you install the necessary language files on the Web servers, you can install the language packs. Language packs are available as individual downloads (one download for each supported language). If you have a server farm environment and you are installing language packs to support multiple languages, you must install the language packs on each of the Web servers.

Ff182925.Important(en-us,office.14).gif Important:
The language pack is installed in its native language. For example, the Russian language pack executable file is in Russian...

Office Web Apps for SharePoint 2010:

Note!
The office Web apps are not like the SharePoint Server updates. They are mostly released either as a single hotfix/update, a security fix or sometimes even as a bulk pack.
So please consider to check via the Windows update services, the Office Team Blogs as listed below and/or via the links from the below table

The Updates for Office Web apps are not maintained in detail like the SharePoint CU updates in this post! I'm only lisitng the most important or Service Packs,
so please apologize if not all updates or not the most recent news are published just-in-time.
If in doubt, run the windows Update service on your Server, hosting the Office Web Apps and check if there is any office web app offered.   😉

    Hi Steve,
    We have SharePoint farm 2 application and 2 web front end servers running SharePoint server SP1. We are going to upgrade SP2 and CU November 2016 leaving out December 2016 just to be on the safe side. We are on English language packs so I don't think we need to upgrade any language packs. Do you see any issue in all of the above? Thanks Cliff

    1. Steve [MSFT] says:

      Hi Cliff Fernandes,

      if English is your default language the farm was installed with, then you may not anticipate problems.
      If English LP was installed because your default setup language was different, then you have to update LPs first.

      hope that answers your Q,

      cheers, Steve

  2. Zolt says:

    Hi there.
    We have an "older" version of SP2010 installed - it version 14.0.7015.100. It is base installed as English , and we added the French language pack.
    I'd like to update it to the latest CU, with the least possible issues (isn't this what we all aim for :))
    Can you tell me if this is a direct CU install? Or are there intermediate steps - other packages to be installed first.
    Should the SP Foundation CU be installed then the SP Server CU, then the Language Packs?

    Thanks for your help,
    Zolt

    1. Steve [MSFT] says:

      Hi Zolt,

      with language packs there is always something special to be considered. First: once you install a language pack such as French, then you need to make sure you have on top of it all service packs for the according language packs installed. Second you may only install the next higher or most recent CU on top of it since CU's are "global" and will then patch also the LP specific files if any.
      To be fully on a safe side, after installed LPs and it's according Service Packs, you can go with CU for foundation first, patch all servers and then repeat with the CU for server packages. With this you might be good to go since LP realted files in foundation AND server path will be then updated properly.
      HtH, cheers, Steve

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for such useful and time saving article.

    I have a confusion. I have a got a SP Server 2010 with no patch installed.
    I installed a hotfix(December CU '13) to fix some issues following the installation of Service Pack 1 for SP Server.

    Now, I have to update it upto the latest patch available, I think it is Dec CU'15.

    I didn't install SPS Service Pack 2 yet. But it released before Dec CU'13 update. So i am confused if I should install Service Pack 2 or not?

    Another thing, does a most updated CU release includes all the changes of the previous CU releases?

    Or should i install each and every CU release upto Dec' 15?

    Please help me because i am too much confused if i should install from Feb'14 to Dec'15. What I have understood that I should install Service Pack and RTM and most updated CU release. Kindly help me.

    Thanks a lot in advance.
    regards
    David

    1. Steve [MSFT] says:

      Hello David,

      On a SharePoint RTM install, you have to install service pack 1 and 2 on top. Then you can go further with the latest CU released after SP2.
      All CU's include the previous updates as well down to the last published Service Pack.

    Hi Steve,
    We're running on SharePoint Server 2010 Service Pack 1 with August 2012 CU. It seems out of support from Microsoft. i would like to patch the servers (2 web, 2 app) to SP2. The question is that if i can just install the SP2 on top of whatever currently we have
    straightaway?
    Thanks

  14. Kyle says:

    @Steve
    Thanks for the reply. The link in the OWA section does point to the "Update Office Web Apps (Installed on SharePoint 2010 Products)" which has not been updated since 2011 and describes SP1 as the most up-to-date version. So unless there have been no patches
    since 2011 (which seems impossible given that SP2 is out) that page is very out-of-date.

    Also, are OWA hotfixes ever rolled up, or does patching OWA to the most up-to-date version involve scouring for all the past hotfixes and downloading and installing them individually? Take this KB article for example:
    https://support.microsoft.com/kb/3000434 in regards to OWA. Is the only way to patch this security vulnerability always going to be to install that specific hotfix or would it be resolved through any other
    hotfix or rolled into a later patch?

  15. Kyle says:

    @Steve

    How do I determine the most recent versions of OWA for SharePoint 2010? The link listed for "Update Office Web Apps (Installed on SharePoint 2010 Products)" points to an article from 2011. Once I installed SP2, my version numbers for all of OWA went to "14.0.7015.1000"
    but subsequent CU installs have not modified this version. I am currently under the impression that CUs do not patch OWA and it must be patched separately. How do I determine the most recent version and where should I get the updates?

  16. Jpb21 says:

    @Steve
    SPS June CU 14 link is not valid. Probably a copy paste error from April CU 14. Version is 14.0.7125.5002 and it can be found here:

    @Reinhard and Reinhardl:

    Hi Guys, I'll check that and will get back to you asap.

    Normally, the DLL Version is the one that Shows up in Central Admin and should be equal to the one from the KB. It might be possible that we have just patched the DLL to a lower build whereas other important files are being really on the mentioned Build.

    Please go to the Folder  C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedWeb Server Extensions14ISAPI  and verify all files with Microsoft.SharePoint.*  for the Version.

  35. ReinhardI says:

    @Steve

    Hi, i also have this Versionnumber 14.0.7108.5000 after SP2 and oct Cu on a freshly installed System (1x Frontend, 1x Backend). I am running PSConfig after each step. Microsoft.Sharepoint.dll is also Version 14.0.7108.5000.

  36. Reinhard says:

    @SharePoint Redneck, Steve

    Hi, i am also getting database Version 14.0.7108.5000 after a Installation of SP2 and Oct CU on a fresh installed System.

    The Dll you mentioned in your post has also this Versionnumber.

  37. Steve [MSFT] says:

    @SharePoint Redneck:

    Hi, the file Version should be the one as mentioned in my post above. From the KB article 2825786 (support.microsoft.com/default.aspx)  you will also
    see the file ubersrv2010-kb2825786-fullfile-x64-glb.exe with version 14.0.7110.5000.

    Did you run the PSConfig wizard after install?  

    What Build Version is shown in central admin, under Servers in farm?

    What Version do you see at the [Microsoft.SharePoint.dll], found in C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedWeb Server Extensions14ISAPI  ???

  38. SharePoint Redneck says:

    As I was installing the Oct CU on a new farm (after installing SP2 and all that), I am getting a database version of 14.0.7108.5000 instead of 14.0.7110.5000 noted above.  Just an FYI unless I am looking in the wrong place.  Thanks.

    Hi,  i have the Aug 11 CU installed on my environment 14.0.6109.5002 (not 14.0.6109.5005) as posted here.

    And I am trying to update to april 13 CU version 14.0.6137.5000, and I am receiving the message: "The expected version of the product was not found on the system".

    But the pre Prerequisites as informed on KB page are only the SPS2010 SP1 and SPF2010 SP1, and they are already installed.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks

    Regards

    Marcos

    Nice list and other useful information.  Thank you for putting it together and keeping it up to date.

    I have a question about language pack build numbers.

    After installing Dec. 2012 CU on all servers in the farm, I checked the Patch Levels Status (http://servername:port/_admin/PatchStatus.aspx) and see that while core sharepoint and the databases are 14.0.6131.5003, the various language packs are mostly 14.0.6029.1000 (SP1), but some items for each language pack range from 14.0.6029.1000  to 14.0.6131.5003.

    Shouldn't all the build numbers be the same?

    Or are their specific CUs/Patched for the language packs that need to be applied after installing a CU?

    Thank you,

    Tom

  43. Vince says:

    For clarification, you are supposed to install the June CU AFTER SP1, not before, as is shown in the list.

  44. Steve [MSFT] says:

    Hi Kristin: as many times already posted, the version is based on that file with the highest patch build. The version shown in central admin, config DB or from the Microsoft.sharepoint*.* dll's can vary and does not necessary reflect the exact same number
    as outlined in the respective KB article. Don't worry, it's always confusing folks 😉

  45. Steve [MSFT] says:

    HI Dennis, this is probably a security fix that might have had some sharepoint bits updated as well. Actually it is a build post SP2 already and the next higher CU would have been October 2013 CU = 14.0.7110.5000.

  46. Steve [MSFT] says:

    Hey Bo,

    yes, you can install SP2 on top of SP1+August 2012 CU. Once updated to SP2, I'd recommend to install soon the next most recent CU as well.
    See the table above for latest info.

    cheers; Steve

  47. Very good content, congratulations.

    Hi Steve

    Thanks for putting together this post, I use it religiously

     >Best Practice

     >I personally recommend that you always install SharePoint Foundation 2010 patches before installing SharePoint Server 2010 patches.

    This best practice is no longer correct. As per this link it has changed:  

    technet.microsoft.com/.../ff800847.aspx

     >The packaging of cumulative updates changed as of August 31, 2011

     >As a result of the new packaging, it is no longer necessary to install the SharePoint Foundation cumulative update and then install the SharePoint Server cumulative update.

    So can you please strike-through that Best Practice and add that comment and link

    A recent Question about updating WAC (aka Office web app Server) reached me and here is the conversation:

    Q:

    My customer is in SharePoint Server 2010, with August 2012 CU. They have Office Web Apps SP1 in place. They are thinking of updating Office Web Apps. I think that latest that we have that’s publicly available is June 2011 CU (support.microsoft.com/.../2553919). According to the KB article, this is a hotfix but we refer to it as a CU. Since it is a hotfix, it’s a single update. Does this mean that the customer should have installed a CU prior to June 2011 CU?

    A:

    The referenced KB is a single hotfix for a specific issue with Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 by using Web apps. So it is not a full WAC packages nor is it a CU.

    However, unfortunately there is no matrix or alignment between the WAC updates and the default SharePoint CU’s.

    So in case you want have them anyway,

    There are no “server/rollup packages” for Office Web Apps, and none of the SharePoint packages will contain Office Web App Fixes. You must download each individual Office Web App Patch and apply it.

    The only direct mapping is the Service pack level and all other “hotfixes” are single packs mostly for a certain version i.e. Excel, PowerPoint, Access etc. and they are only recommended to be installed

    IF YOU HAVE THE DESCRIBED ISSUE!

    Reply:

    ...it is being referred as June "CU" in this blog: blogs.technet.com/.../patching-office-web-apps-to-sp1-and-june-cus-including-sharepoint-server-2010.aspx

    Step 1: SharePoint Server 2010 SP1: support.microsoft.com/.../2460045

    Step 2: Office Web Apps SP1: support.microsoft.com/.../2460073

    Step 3: SharePoint Server 2010 June CU: support.microsoft.com/.../2536599

    Step 4: Office Web Apps June CU: support.microsoft.com/.../2553919

    A2:

    The blog you mentioned, describes the special circumstance with our SP1 and June CU geared up to each other and hence needs to be applied in that order 😉

    For all later CU’s for SharePoint, there is no mapping to single hotfixes for office web apps.

    The WAC fixes are mostly security fixes and should come via WSUS or Windows online update anyway.

    If not, its only recommended to install these fixes if you having the described problems.

    There appear to be a couple of fixes for office web apps fix for October 2011 and they are KB 2687562, KB 2687617, 2760391, and 2687614 but these are for single product versions like one for excel, PowerPoint a.s.o.  None of them is considered as a full WAC rollup packages and hence each one considered only for a specific issue.

    Hope that helps,

    Is there a documentation that matches which OWA CUs are required/needed in a particular SP2010 CU?

  51. Steve [MSFT] says:

    @Jonny Smooth Bravo:

    sorry for delayed answer. although you found already the other post. But just to get back to your first question:

    "Why is this so difficult, why are there not any indication of these issues mentioned in any of the KB articles for the CU or service pack?"

    Answer:

    Service Packs are usually intensive tested and also being passed through Beta testing stages same as our main porducts. But even then, we cannot find each and every bug Prior to it's occurence if it is not reported during beta nor might be fixed Prior public release.

    There are lots of circumstances that can Impact and change the behavior on installing SP's which we cannot test all possible Scenarios.

    CU's are not stress tested same as SP's and hence can have more often regressions and/or other unexpected issues.

    Sometimes, we find Problems after Publishing and by reports from Customers when doing the updates.

    These we will follow up asap and of course trying to do the updates in either our Escalation Engineer's Posts and/or changing the KB's etc. as quickly we can

    but this might often takes some time and will not always reach you right in time while you do the update.

    That's why we always pray to "test it before applying into production, learn, repeat testing"

    HtH,  😉

  52. Steve [MSFT] says:

    Hi Kyle,
    as already said, I haven't had time to maintain it accurately but did some changes today, that will list at least some more links and info's along with the two service packs, already released yet.

    So if SP1 + SP2 for office web apps is installed, the further updates following SP2 may either being deployed via WSUS or security fixes which are usually announced by the MS-Bulletins news letter.

    Please use it "as is" since I don't have enough time to iterate through all the content to list up and keep it current with all released updates in particular.
    Hope that helps a bit,
    cheers, Steve

  53. frankb@newsgator.com says:

    @steve - what you offered here: blogs.technet.com/.../3586568.aspx is the golden ticket. Moving forward I will use this combinaton in the order you listed.

    Thank you, this was driving me insane.

  54. Steve [MSFT] says:

    Hi Tom,

    depending on what the fix contains, not all files/DLLs will be patched/updated. If you check the Microsoft.sharepoint.dll file version, this reflects the most recent update status. For language packs, usually also service packs will be served and needs to
    be installed inline with the SharePoint patch level. So if you have SharePoint SP1+ AND LP Sp1 applied as well, still not all files would show up the same version, so this wouldn't be a mistake. finally the CU in general are commonly "global" means they are
    not language specific and will patch the installed language files too. All related information on language packs can be found here:

    blogs.technet.com/.../3293169.aspx

    Hope that helps and answers your Q.

    Cheers, Steve

    @steve - Stefan (blogs.technet.com/.../sharepoint-server-2010-service-pack-2-has-been-released.aspx)
    indicated I could install June 2013 CU on top of RTM, and then Service Pack 2, but I'm getting a messaging indicating "The expected version of the product was not found on the system" the only successfully way I have been able to accomplish this is via the
    way you mentioned above?

    Why is this so difficult, why are there not any indication of these issues mentioned in any of the KB articles for the CU or service pack?

  56. Steve [MSFT] says:

    @Jpb21: thnx for the bump, link corrected 😉

  57. Steve [MSFT] says:

    Hi Vince,

    you're right but the list should not imply the install order bat rather giving a cube of all updates since RTM, but thnx, I'll correct this right away to not confuse any others further.

    Please note my changed post above...

    cheers, Steve

  58. Steve [MSFT] says:

    Hi Adam,

    many thanks for your commitment to my blog and your comments. Well yes it is not necessary anymoer to install both parts of the pacakges (foundation + server) but it still becomes important on certain scenarios and combinations and may casue unexoected issues if you dont do so.

    For short:  yes, it is sufficient just to install the Server CU or Project packages as they contain all required bits. But it is just an extra mile but not a problem when you still follow my recommendations.

    Its just for future cases and for consistency at all to be on the secure side. However, as written above, its just my personal view and also have been stated so on the sustained engineering blog whch are the folks that creates the fixes 😉

    anyway, thnx, cheers and greetz, Steve

  59. Steve [MSFT] says:

    @Reinhard and Reinhardl:
    so it seems that although we have on the KB's 2825786 and 2825824 that this is build 14.0.7110.5000, the Microsoft.sharepoint.dll and Microsoft.sharepoint.portal.dll are of Version 14.0.7108.5000

    - thats correct and also shown in central admin - manage Servers in farm.
    The build Version 14.0.7110.5000 is pulled from the Microsoft.sharepoint.search.dll and is then highest build in the oct. 2013 package, thats why its confusing with the given build number from the KBs.

    It's all ok but just missleaded statement in the KBs
    😉
    HtH,
    cheers, Steve

  60. Steve [MSFT] says:

    Kyle:

    OWA never was part of any CU for SharePoint. It is an independent update stream. You may find more info on most recent updates above in the "Office Web App Section". Since there is no frequency like the CU's it is more like a "hotfix" being released via KBs.
    I was working on a similar sheet but haven't found the time yet to maintain it.
    HtH, Cheers, Steve

  61. Steve [MSFT] says:

    A recent question to my sheet:

    Q:  On this post and several other sites I see the build numbers 14.0.4762.1000 and 14.0.5123.5000 listed but no 14.0.5123.5002 listed.

         Is there a reason 14.0.5123.5002 isnt listed in your article?

    A:  This fix (14.0.5123.5002) is a single hotfix for a specific issue (support.microsoft.com/.../2398734) and is included in the October CU!

        On my sheet, there is only listed the each cumulative update or so called “Uber-Packages” which are containing all fixes provided

        in-between the regular CU frequency.

    When you install the cumulative package, you’ll have included all single fixes, newly released since last prior CU.

    So in your case, if you install the Oct. CU, the mentioned fix is included.

    Hope that answers your Question 😉

  62. Steve [MSFT] says:

    Hi Cherina,

    I'm assuming you mean with "OWA" NOT the 'Outlook Web Access' but 'Office Web App', right?

    Well,  there is no direct mapping to CU's. Only at Service Pack Level, the updates should be aligned. The 'Office Web App' updates are released separate and in my post above you'll find all Web App updates published so far. if ther eis a new one, I'll add it here, else you can also simply search for updates on search.microsoft.com/.../search.aspx

    Hope that asnwers your Question 😉

  63. Steve [MSFT] says:

    @Marcos

    Are you sure, that your last CU was properly installed? Since you have installed the Aug 11 CU with 14.0.6109.5002, the error might come from a check against the updated Version of the aug. 11 CU with 14.0.6109.5005. This was a fixed Versions as it might had a Regression in the 5002 build and hence, the update probably check for the increment and may prevent you here from installing any higfher bits. Please try and get the fresh Aug.11 Cu on 5005 Build and install it on top, this should help to get the next higher CU's after. If this still does not work, then you maybe have another issue and this needs to be investigated within a MS Service request.

    HtH, cheers, Steve
