Exchange 2010 SP2 RU4 - Update Question

Greetings. We're on Exchange 2010, SP2, RU 4 (Build 14.2.318.2).

I understand the latest version is Update Rollup 4 for SP3.

Do I need to apply cumulative rollups (4 v2 - 8) before going to SP3 first ?  Or can I update to SP3, then apply SP3 RU4 ?

Thanks much.

Hi Stephen,

Not all rollups are security solutions, some are just for functionality so yes, you can go from RU3 to RU4 skipping 1 and 2. ( 4 is a security RU fixing a remote code execution so you really should install it)
If you are not missing any other features you are in great shape.

You can directly install SP3 on all exchange servers 1st and then install rollup update 4

Since Exchange updates are cumulative and contains previous updates as well.
