    did you install the FOundation CU or Server? One thing keep in mind, SharePoint Server Build on top of SharePoint Foundation that's why many places you will see the SPF... – Waqas Sarwar MVP Nov 29 '14 at 4:23
  • now windows update tools refer to foundation & server CUs , so on our staging server i install both CUs for server and foundation. So is there any problem ? – john Gu Nov 29 '14 at 22:22
  • You shouldn't need to install both CU's for SP Server. Installing the SP Server CU's installs both Foundation and Server updates. As Waqas Sarwar said SP Server is built on top of Foundation – z.rahui Dec 1 '14 at 0:40
  • @z.rahui OK but in my case windows update tools showed 4 CUs. three for them are for SP server, while one of them is for SP foundation. now if i do not install the foundation cU , my farm build number will not be updated to 4667 ... once i install the foundation CU , and i run the configuration wizard, the farm build number was changed to 4667... so this means that i need to install the foundation cU.. – john Gu Dec 1 '14 at 11:19
  • You shouldn't need to. Are you running the Farm Config wizard after the install? Refer to this on the KB for Nov 2014 update - "This cumulative update package contains all the .msp files that we released as hotfixes or as public updates that target SharePoint Server 2013. This update package also targets SharePoint Foundation 2013. Therefore, you do not have to install those packages separately." – z.rahui Dec 2 '14 at 7:16
