SharePoint Server 2013 SP1 (Updated)

MSFT released this CU a few days ago. The download is 1.3Gb like the previous ones.

After downloading this update right click on the CU and select “Run As Administrator”

The update takes a while to extract and then checks what needs to be updated. The update itself then takes aprox 4-5 hours to install.

Once installed it prompts to reboot the server. After the reboot you can open up the SharePoint Configuration Wizard and let it upgrade.

Mine took quite a while but when through the steps until Step 9 of 10. The upgrade sat there for about 20 min before proceeding on to Step 10 and then finishing.

One thing I noticed is that the previous “bug” if you want to call it that seems to be fixed:

***My SharePoint Server out of the blue started throwing event ID 6398. The error is :

  • Unexpected exception in FeedCacheService.IsRepopulationNeeded: Unable to create a DataCache. SPDistributedCache is probably down..***

Hope it helps

      Thanks Gerald, I had the “old” SP1 installed and applied the “new” one. For me 4-5 hours is no problem, i would rather let it run its course.
