I have the following:-
- Windows server 2008 R2.
- SharePoint enterprise server 2013 sp1.
- SharePoint Designer
Today I ran the windows update and it showed that there are 28 important update with total size of 1.1 GB. When I view the details for the updates I found updates for SharePoint foundation, outlook, word, lync, office 2013 as follow:-
First question. Should I install all the updates or since I am using SharePoint enterprise and I do not to install updates for :-
- SharePoint foundation,
- office 2013
… so should I ignore these updates and only install SharePoint enterprise 2013 related updates and security updates for windows server 2008 r2.?
Second question. Generally speaking will windows update only show the updates required for my server? Or it simply display any new updates regardless if i need them or not. For example inside my live SharePoint serve I do not have outlook or lync installed , so why it showed me an update for outlook and another one for lync?. and if I install these updates what will basically happen? Will the update consume a disk space, or it will not be installed ?
