Exchange 2013 Updates

I want to get our Exchange 2013 up to the latest version.  We are currently on 15.0.516.32 and I see the latest version (so far) is 15.0.995.29.

Can anyone suggest an upgrade path?  Has anyone gone from my version direct to the latest or should I go in phases (etc).  I was thinking of just installing SP1 and then the couple updates after that.

This is the info I have on versions - http://exchangeserverversions.blogspot.com/2013/01/exchange-server-2013.html 

Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks,
Chad

Dear Chad,

You can directly perform SP1 installation there is no need to install each CU.
The actual version info can be found from :

If you are updating the DAG members you need to perform precaution to avoid any downtime by moving the DB between servers and run the updates. Refer this article for smooth DAG member updates: http://exchangeserverpro.com/how-to-install-updates-on-exchange-server-2010-database-availability-groups/

that is the RTM version

I see the latest version (so far) is 15.0.995.29

that build is CU6 released over a year ago; CU10 is the latest (15.0.1130.7)

I was thinking of just installing SP1...

SP1 is the same as CU4 which was released in february 2014 and is long out of support
you can go straight to CU10; they are cumulative

Thanks guys!  Those are the answers I was looking for.  Was just worried there might be some gotchas but glad I can go to CU10.
