Our servers in Exchange 2010 on-premises environment are running Update Rollup 7 Exchange 2010 Server SP3 (14.03.02.10.002).

Can we download and IN-PLACE UPGRADE Update Rollup 14 for Exchange Server 2010 SP3 (14.03.0301.000)?  Is reboot expected?  

Thanks.

Hi,

yes, you can install latest UR for exchange. That is supported. As I recall, reboot is required.

PS: If you have more then 1 server, then you should install the update on the CAS and HT servers before doing the Mailbox servers.

Regards,
Ivan.

Thanks.

The C drive of the servers only have 22GB left.  Do you think it is enough?

Hi,

it is enough, since entire exchange does not takes even close to that size, but there is a question how much is 22gb compared to drive size?
If your drive is like 200Gb and now you have 22Gb then that can be a problem soon.
Exchange don't like to have less then 6% of free space on that drive, so make sure not to overuse it, or you may end up with mail flow problems.

In other words, if drive is like 50-100Gb and you have 22Gb free, then it is ok :)

Ivan.

The update rollups (UR) are cumulative and only the latest one needs to be applied.  Microsoft only supports the latest 2 URs. Therefore, UR13 and UR14 are the only URs that are currently supported for Exchange 2010 SP3.


After the UR install completes, it does not require a restart.  However, I would recommend a restart.

Exchange 2010 SP3 UR14 is 48MB in size.  You should have plenty of space.
