Hi,

I have an Exchange server that I installed last year the version is 14.02.0218.013.  I am not sure this is SP1 or not.  Here are my questions:

1- What version is this?

2- Do I need to install SP2 first and then SP2 Rollout 4 or can I just install SP2 Rollout 4 on top of the server?

3- Should I expect anything to brake?

This is my primary exchange server and I need to take any precaution to make sure it goes 100% right.

1 - That's SP2 and some rollup
2 - NO, you don't need to install SP2. Just install the latest RU 5 v2 (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=36017)
3 - normally it should go with no problems but always make sure that you have a valid backup

Thanks,

Based on what you send me (the last post) it looks like SP1.

If I am right; do I need to do SP2 first and then SP2 RU5?

The version number you originally posted doesn't look right. You need to look in EMC under Servers, not the console under Help About.

You have to do the service pack and rollup seperately. So SP2, then the rollup. It is only on fresh installations that you can do both at once.

Like Sembee mentioned your exchange version doesn't seem right. To get the right version open an PowerShell and run the following command:
Get-ExchangeServer | fl name, edition, admindisplayversion

Open in new window


Yes, you are right. If your server is running SP1 now then you have to install SP2 first and then RU 5 v2, the one I provided the link for above.

Best way i know of checking version is to check the version of exe files for Exchange (like Store.exe, Mad.exe etc)

rest as you shared 14.02 it seems SP2 and some RU so i would simply suggest you to wait and not just jump to any RU that comes across
