I currently am in middle of migrating sharepoint 2010 site to another server. My current version of SharePoint server database says:

Database Schema Versions
Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPContentDatabaseSequence Current Schema Version:, Maximum Schema Version:

Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPContentDatabaseSequence2 Current Schema Version:,

Maximum Schema Version:

Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPContentDatabase Current Schema Version: 14.0.4762.1000, Maximum Schema Version: 14.0.6112.5000

But the destination server says:

Configuration Database version 14.0.6112.5000

Content Database

->SPContentDatabaseSequence – Current: Max:

->SPContentDatabaseSequence2 – Current: Max:

->SPContentDatabase – Current: 14.0.6112.5000 Max: 14.0.6112.5000

How do I update my first server to meet requirement of second server?

I know that we have to install a patch. Where would I find it? Could you also please explain the precautions I should take before I update the database of my SharePoint server?

  • For reference, the first version 14.0.4762.1000, is RTM and the second version, 14.0.6112.5000 is the October 2011 CU – shufler Oct 29 '12 at 23:24

Here's the official page with the list of the last updates: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/ff800847.aspx#LatestUpdates. here's the whitepaper on the SharePoint patching process practices: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=24859. And if you open a description for any update from the official page I gave above you'll find a note about its build version. For example if you open December 2011 Update for SharePoint Foundation page you'll see the note:

This is build 14.0.6114.5000 of the cumulative update package.

I had trouble understanding your question

I assume that you are doing this:

  • I have a newer SharePoint 2010 farm with a higher patch level
  • I have content databases that may be from an older patch level
  • I need to attach these content databases to my new SP 2010 farm

If that is the case then:

Mount the old SP Content database in the new farm (using powershell)


Full syntax here:

TechNet: Attach or detach content databases (SharePoint Server 2010)

Mounting the database will automatically upgrade the database as part of mounting it. If errors occur during the mount you can use:


TechNet: Test-SPContentDatabase

TechNet: Upgrade-SPContentDatabase

You may also want to upgrade the farm:

psconfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace v2v -wait

TechNet: Command-line reference for the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard (Office SharePoint Server)
