Cumulative Updates

We have a SharePoint 2013 environment using MySites. We are moving from SQL 2012 to SQL 2014. After much research I read that we have to install a CU so that the UPS synch will work. The article I read indicated I need to install May 2014. My colleague read we need the Aug 11, 2015 CU for MySites to work.

I'm asking for some guidance on this manner. We currently do not install Cumulative Updates on our servers.

Thanks and I appreciate it.

Yes, CU's seem to be the solution to this. I've seen farms where UPS couldn't work with SQL 2014 unless CU April 2014 were installed (in the case I saw).

Not seen the MySites issue myself.

If you don't like CU's, bringing the SQL version up to 2014 SP2 would include these fixes and more.
