Issue with SP2013 SP1

1 Comment

According to Joerg Sinemus blog article:

We have recently uncovered an issue with this Service Pack 1 package that may prevent customers who have Service Pack 1 from deploying future public or cumulative updates. As a precautionary measure, we have deactivated the download page until a new package is published.

As soon we have more information, we will update you.

Apparently if you used the SharePoint 2013 with SP1 media to install SP2013SP1 you should not have the issue.  You will have the problem only if you installed SharePoint 2013 SP1 on an existing SharePoint 2013 installation.

The SharePoint Summit Montréal will be held at Place Bonaventure Montréal from April 14th to 16th.  There will be sessions in both English end French.  I will be giving a one day training for SharePoint Power Users (in French) on Monday April 14th.  In the past we have held unofficial “Ask the expert sessions”, this year there will be three ask the expert sessions, I have the honor to be the moderator for one of them.
