Check out this article on nothingbutsharepoint.com on how to find the versions in SP2010. And Todd Klindt has a nice break down too.
Taken from Todd's article,
To see which build your farm is, go to Central Administration > System
Settings > Manage servers in your farm (/_admin/FarmServers.aspx)
Or using Windows PowerShell: (get-spfarm)....
The guidance and "best practice" up until the August 2011 CU is to install SPF Service Packs and CU's on Server edition. From August 2011 the packaging process has changed and you only need one package to install.
So in order to install SP1 + June CU do this: (the Microsoft recommendation is to install June CU directly after SP1, there are a couple of nasty ...
Although SP2 for the 2007 Office Desktop products can be uninstalled,
you cannot uninstall 2007 Office Servers Service Pack 2 for Office
server products. The main reason for this is that the installation of
2007 Office Server Service Pack 2 makes changes to back-end databases,
and those database changes are currently unable to be ...
Yes, Service Pack 2 contains all Cummulative Updates and Hot fixes before it.. including SP1
Install SharePoint 2010 Service Pack 2 the right way
SharePoint Server 2010 Service Pack 2 has been released (Updated July 31st, 2013)
That error can be caused by a lot of things, e.g.:
service accounts with invalid passwords
missing feature dependencies
missing content databases
lack of permissions of your account
the user account control (UAC) on the server (eventhough you should see a "access denied" error)
a previous unfinished upgrade process
any many more...
I recommend rebooting ...
"Upgrade blocked" means that this server has upgrades installed which are missing on other servers with status "Installation required".
Move to CA -> Upgrade and Migration -> Check product and patch installation status. Compare exactly the installed updates on each server and find out which one is missing.
You can find more information about Versions and ...
There are 2 things:
Installation required: When you install the patch on one server in farm but not on other servers then all other servers status will be installation required.
Upgrade blocked: Now, on the server where you installed the updates that server status become upgrade blocked un till you run the PSconfig wizard.
You have to check which patch ...
The workflow issue is a security feature, although in your current situation, you might not agree.
It's easier to just fix the recursion issues for the workflows because going forward it has to be done anyway (SP2 required for upgrade where it will be required to be fixed). Add trigger column(s) to your list and create a second workflow that fires on ...
Looks like this a common issue. I had same issue after researching why Search wasn't working and only returning an error message. You could fix the issue by following instructions here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/opal/archive/2010/04/18/track-sharepoint-2010-installations-by-service-connection-point-ad-marker.aspx
But, you don't want to leave as is. You can ...
Are you able to take a backup of the content database that holds the site collection? If you do so you can then restore the SQL Content DB to your dev sql instance and attach it to a development web application, the attach will perform an 'upgrade' on the content db and should take care of your issue.
I had the same errors. Detaching databases didn't help, it was for some reason, the langue packs that were bugging me. After deinstalling the language packs, and running PSconfig again, my upgrade finished!
correct upgrade order (In my opinion ;). some people think different about the subject):
install SP1 - foundation
install SP1 - Server
I finally sorted this issue. I ended up ringing MS on it and their only official supported fix was to delete and recreate the User Profile Service Application & it's database. However this was on our production server and I couldn't do that. Luckily based on their information I was able to come up with an unofficial fix.
The error happens because ...
The upgrade error indicates you have a custom Full Trust Solution in place that appears to be missing (from the description, it is a timer job). This won't necessarily cause the upgrade to fail overall, but likely something you should resolve, either by forcing the feature removal if the FTC is no longer deployed; Feature Admin is a popular tool for this, or ...
Since SharePoint Server 2013 Service Pack 1, there is no any public or mandatory update. Check the full list at SharePoint Server 2013 build numbers
But there's a CU that depend on old CU, don't worry you will find the pre request instructions at the CU download page.
Although the periodic patching is useful, it's recommended to ...
I had the same problem. It turns out I just needed to remember to run the SP2010 Products Configuration Wizard by right clicking and using "Run As Administrator".
(as my system is deployed on a Windows 2008 R2 server).
Even though I was logged in with privileged accounts (including the admin account used to install SharePoint in the first place), it would ...
If you want to have your SharePoint Farm up to Dec 2011 CU, following is the path:
1) Install SharePoint Server SP1 - Following the installation Guide
2) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2597014 - Dec 2011 CU
Note that while installing Dec CU for Server version, you do NOT install Foundation Version of CU. After Aug 31 2011, all Server CU will include ...
I've had this problem, before. What I did was deleted the certificates from the MMC, and restarted the machine. It was the October 2011 CU.
Also, did you run the PSConfigUI.exe (SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard)? It is required after installing June 2011 CU. See here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/ff800847.aspx
It'll state that on the installation instructions
You'll find installed language packs in "Programs and Features" in Control Panel
Yes. Also see 1.
Office Web Apps is a separate Microsoft Product so updates for that are delivered through the OWA portal on TechNet. Here's instructions on installing updates: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/...
their is no easy way as far i know unless uninstall the SharePoint.
I would simply install the SharePoint server SP1, you will all set.
Maybe you Know Server Service Pack include both Foundation & server SP1. So if you installed the foundation separately then when you run the Server SP1 it will automatically detect it and install only server related ...
Open a command prompt run as administrator and run
I would do the following things
Install the SharePoint + SP1 + Latest CU on all servers in the farm( App server and WFEs).
Run the Config wizard on the central admin server and build a farm.
Configure the state service.
Now Run the Config wizard on the WFEs one by one and join them in the farm.

rolling back the SharePoint updates are not supported, due to the fact it is not only installed on the server but also update the content database schemas.
As per my experience and best practice in the market.
I would apply the update in the Lower farm( test farm, may be copy the data from production server to get real time testing).
Test all the required ...
