Good Morning,

I am looking at the correct path to upgrade my SharePoint 2013 environment, I do have a test environment which is a single server which I will start with then my production farm (1 frontend, 2 application servers, 2 sql with enterprise search)

Both environments are sitting at 15.0.4569.1506

Can I go directly to the following Uber Patches or do is there a specific path I need to be taking?

KB 3115174 – SharePoint Server 2013 CU June 14, 2016 (Uber)

As for my production Farm please confirm these steps.

1. stop all enterprise search syncs
2. apply patch to application servers do not do psconfig
3. apply patch to webfrontend and run psconfig

Thank you for you help

You information is good. Step two needs some adjustment though. Unless you have documentation telling you otherwise, you will need to run psconfig on the application servers also. You will have to run the install on all servers first, then come back and do psconfig.

Be careful, your web front end will probably go down while you run psconfig.

Hope that helps...

As mentioned, you will need to run psconfig on the application servers also. Otherwise, sound like a good plan. Make sure you make SQL backups of the content and config databases beforehand and have a solid rollback plan.

Good luck...
