How to tell which Service Pack 1 you have installed on SharePoint 2013

Edit: 7/3 added MSDN and VL ISO screenshot and explanation

It’s been a fun couple of months for guys like me that watch SharePoint patching. Earlier this month Microsoft discovered a particularly nasty bug in SharePoint 2013 Service Pack 1 and they pulled it. They locked their best and brightest patchmeisters into a room, threw in some Mt. Dew and Snickers bars and had them crank out a newer, better, stronger, more-able-to-be-patched version of Service Pack 1. If you were one of the people that installed the first, broken SP1, the fix is to install the new, shiny SP1 over top of it. The problem is figuring out which version of SP1 you have installed. The new SP1 looks an awful lot like his older brother, right down to the Farm build number (15.0.4569.1000). There is an easy way to tell them apart in Central Administration. Click the Upgrade and Migration link on the left, then Check product and patch installation status. That should take you to the /_admin/PatchStatus.aspx page. A first generation SP1 server will look like this:

The two important pieces are the KB article for the patch, KB2817429, and the patch version, 15.0.4569.1506.

A second generation SP1 server will look like this:

Its KB number is KB2880552 and it build number is 15.0.4571.1502.

If you installed SharePoint 2013 from MSDN or Volume License (VL) media it might have Service Pack 1 integrated. In that case, everything is okay. It's patch status page looks like this:



If you have the Bad SP1 just install the Good SP1 over top of it like any other update. Don’t forget to run the Config Wizard afterwards to show SharePoint you really mean business. If your server was installed with the MSDN or VL media you can still install the new SP1 over top if you want to be super sure you're up to date.

Don’t forget to follow @SP2013Patches on Twitter and bookmark my SharePoint 2013 Builds page to keep on all the patching craziness.

Re: How to tell which Service Pack 1 you have installed on SharePoint 2013

I've just installed the new "good" SP1 on my Test application server with success, went to the WFE and installed it, and when i try to run the config wizard i get greeted by this for all products:

Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 Installed Across Server Farm
 Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013 Core
  
 Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013 Core (15.0.4571.1502) 
 Missing on SERVERNAME

Have you heard anything about this yet?

I haven't had that problem. That component patch is included in the SP1, so it should be getting installed. If you're feeling brave you can use the /extract parameter to unpack the SP1 and install that component patch individually.

The solution was running "Get-SPProduct -local" twice!

Does the "good" SP1 have any additional fixes/updates? We installed the "bad" SP1 and want to know if we'll get more than just fixing an update bug

Re: How to tell which Service Pack 1 you have installed on SharePoint 2013

You get a fix for the update bug and a fix for the Foundation Search bug. Full details at http://www.toddklindt.com/blog/Regressions/SP2013SP1Mark2.aspx

Search is Broken

I've installed a the updated service pack KB2880552 and it is showing build number 15.0.4571.1502. However search is broken now, Sorry, something went wrong. I have remove and recreated the search application with no success. As we have only been using sharepoint recently, this is the first update we have installed (so no previous cu updates), and the search hotfix is no more applicable. Anyone else having similar issues after installed this "new" service pack?

Got the same error - "not installed on server"

I had a farm that already had the "bad" SP1 installed and installed the new SP1 on top of it and got all these errors when running the config wizard that the build versions of components on the local server didn't match the version in the farm.

"Get-SPProduct -local" solved it just fine for me.

I think the mistake I did was install it using the farm account, instead of the setup account. But I didn't get any errors during the installation of the SP at all.
