Patching SharePoint 2013 Server 1 out 3 Finding out your current patch level

steps :

Identify the current farm patch level:
Central Admin – > Manage servers on this farm

Patch Level1.png

The configuration database version indicates the Build Number in the above example 15.0.4569.1000. You can also review the farm patch status by selecting the  Check product and patch installation status under Central Admin – > Upgrade and Migration – > Check product and patch installation status.

This page provide a more detailed view on the installed patches.

Ok, so we have the build number what does it mean, it would have been nice if we had some meaningful information, like the date, so we can at least have an idea how late behind we are on our patches, or even a link to what the patch actually contains. In order to get this information you will need to compare the Build number to the table below:

SharePoint patching demystified

Base of my patch level and build number (marked in red) we now know that this farm is patched with SP1.

Identifying your current patches is the first step now we need to know which patches to install in order to bring your farm most updated patch level. Before we can do that we need to understand what the accumulative patches contains.
