I never did this before, so I want to make sure it is correct.
I have a development SP standalone machine (A), it has SQL2008R2+SP2013. it was setup by others. Now, we decided to setup a a farm (B) with SQL2012+SP2013, separate the SQL and SP, and want to keep all content and customization on the Dev box.
I setup new SP farm, backup content database on A, and restore it on B. then try to attach it to a web app on B. Then it shows this error:
Content database schema version is not supported in the new farm
Then I realized that the Dev SP has many patches installed. Based on build number and CU listed at http://blogs.technet.com/b/steve_chen/archive/2013/03/26/3561010.aspx , Dev SP was SPS2013 RTM, 15.0.4420.1017. Then installed each update, PU, CU until 15.0.4535.1000. The content database setting shows:
Database Schema Versions
Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPContentDatabaseSequence Current Schema Version: 22.214.171.124, Maximum Schema Version: 126.96.36.199 Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPContentDatabaseSequence2 Current Schema Version: 188.8.131.52, Maximum Schema Version: 184.108.40.206 Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPContentDatabase Current Schema Version: 15.0.4535.1000, Maximum Schema Version: 15.0.4535.1000
My question is: Do I have to install each PU & CU listed? Or, I can simply install the ones on March and Augest (4535.1000) (in order to install August one, have to install March one first)?
