The product group released the May 2016 Cumulative Update for SharePoint Server 2016 product family.
This is the second CU for SharePoint Server 2016 after RTM.
The KB articles for May 2016 CU are available at the following location:
- KB 3115088 – Update for SharePoint Server 2016 May 2016 (language independent)
- KB 2920690 – Update for SharePoint Server 2016 May 2016 (language dependent fixes)
The download for May 2016 CU is available through the following link:
- Download Update for SharePoint Server 2016 May 2016 (language independent)
- Download SharePoint Server 2016 May 2016 (language dependent fixes)
It is irrelevant which language you pick on the drop down in download center. Even the language dependent fixes are all in the same package for all languages.
After installing the fixes you need to run the SharePoint 2016 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm. If you prefer to run the command line version psconfig.exe ensure to have a look here for the correct options.
SharePoint 2016 May 2016 CU Build Number: 16.0.4378.1000
The language independent Fix updates the configuration database schema – so the configuration database schema version will show the version number above after installing 3115088.
