We are migrating from SP2010 to SP2013

At what stage do I need to install SP2013 SP1 and latest CU?

I mean should I install SP2013 SP1 and latest CU right after I install SP2013 binaries?

Here are the steps, I would follow.

  • Install SharePoint Binaries
  • Install the Language packs
  • Install the Latest CU
  • Run the Config wizard and setup the farm.

You need to configure your farm before start of migration.

  • Thanks for your response. So after installing SP binaries,SP1 and latest CU(in order),I run the Config wizard.After this,I install Language packs and their SP1 right?

  • oh you have LPs as well, check my answer now. I think now you will get the SharePoint 2013 with SP1 so no need to sperate installation of SP1 and same case with LPs
