I have SharePoint production and staging environment where production has build version of 14.0.7015.1000 & staging has 14.0.7125.5000. I had observed there are two additional hot fixes applied on staging(February 2014 CU, June 2014 CU for SharePoint 2010) which were not present in production environment.

How do I make production build version same as staging. Does installing above CU will make both the farms at same build version? .

Do I need to install just June 2014 CU on production or I need to install first February CU and then June 2014 CU?

I have 3 WFE, Should I install the CU at different time on each WFE? What would be down time?

Do I need to do any backup, what is way to restore if something doesn't work after installation of CU?

Thanks

Here are the Answers:

Does installing above CU will make both the farms at same build version?. Yes

Do I need to install just June 2014 CU on production or I need to install first February CU and then June 2014 CU? You just need to Install June 2014 CU( this CU include the previous CUs as well.)

have 3 WFE, Should I install the CU at different time on each WFE? As best practice, you should install CU binaries on all server in parallel, after that you have to run the Config wizard on each Server in farm. Config wizard should run on one server at a given time. i would start from central admin server.

What would be down time? depend upon the size of content and number server, Farm will not available during the updates and config wizard. You should plan it accordingly.

Do I need to do any backup, what is way to restore if something doesn't work after installation of CU? as a Best practice, RUn Full back of the Farm depend upon you backup method...either SharePoint or Database Backup If some things goes wrong at the end, its depend upon the corruption, if whole farm went down then you need to rebuild it. or if one database corrupted then you need to just restore that db.
