I am working on new sharepoint server 2016 . currently our customer installed the sharepoint around 6 months ago, and seems they did not even configure the farm. currently they are on 16.0.4351.1000 which represents RTM. and i want to install the latest updates which is currently for March 2017 as mentioned on this link http://www.toddklindt.com/blog/Builds/SharePoint-2016-Builds.aspx
But i have the following questions:-
is it better to configure the farm first (current farm build number is 16.0.4351.1000) then install the latest updates? OR i can install the latest updates then configure the farm?
Unlike sharepoint 2013, seems there are 2 updates one for
Language Independent Filesand the other for
Language Dependent Files.. so which one i should install ?and why ?
