We have SharePoint server 2013 , and the latest cumulative updates which i have manually applied was on October 2014, where i download it from the following site Link.
after that we were doing the following:-
using windows server 2008 R2's windows update tool we were installing all the updates , where SharePoint updates used to appear on the windows update tool. but for a reason or another SharePoint updates no more appears on windows update tool..
as part of our internal security policy , we were patching our servers with the latest security updates, including SharePoint security updates.
now i am a bit confused on were do i stand , in respect to the SharePoint updates. now i run the following command :-
PS C:\Windows\system32> (get-spfarm).buildversion Major Minor Build Revision ----- ----- ----- -------- 15 0 4763 1000
now this build number is for October 2015 CU, and when i checked the "Check product and patch installation status" from our central admin, i found 5 patches which have the following number
15.0.4771.1000 which is for November 2015, and seems these 5 patches did not update the farm build number. so can anyone adivce where i do stand ?? as i mentioned since October 2014 i did not install any updates manually and i was relying on windows update tool, and the security updates ?
Second question. now since i have farm build number = 15.0.4763.1000,, so does this mean that i should have all the updates and patches till October 2015 installed inside our SharePoint server?? or i can not conclude this ??
