March 2022 CU for SharePoint Server 2019 is available for download

The product group released the March 2022 Cumulative Update for SharePoint Server 2019 product family. SharePoint Server 2019 is patched with a language dependent and a language independent fix.

The KB article for March 2022 CU will be available at the following Location in a couple of hours:

  • KB 5002163 – March 2022 Update for SharePoint Server 2019 (language independent)
  • There was no language dependent fix released this month.
    The most recent language dependent fix is KB 5002134 from February 2022 CU.

The downloads for March 2022 CU are available through the following links:

Important: It is required to install both fixes (language dependent and independent) to fully patch a SharePoint server. This applies also to servers which do not have language packs installed. The reason is that each SharePoint installation includes a language dependent component together with a language independent component. If additional language packs are added later (only) the language dependent fix has to be applied again.

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 2019 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.

Please ensure to have a look at the SharePoint Patching Best Practices before applying new fixes.

SharePoint 2019 March 2022 CU Build Number:

Language independent fix: 16.0.10384.20000

  1. Above you indicate that this is a security update, but you stated that there are no security updates for SharePoint that were released this month. Can you please clarify? Thank you!


    1. Hi John,
      thanks for the heads-up!
      I removed the incorrect information.


  2. Hi Stefan,
    since this update all Managed-Metadata-Values are not shown in modern view any more, if the value is set to required at the document-type, instead the text “required info” is shown. If the value is set to optional the values are shown (it concerns documents only, not document-sets). With the classic view are values are shown.
    Is it a known bug?
    Thanks & Cheers


    1. Hi Christian,
      I haven’t heard about this issue.
      If you need this investigated I would recommend to open a support ticket with Microsoft.


      1. Hello Stefan,
        thanks for your feedback, as suggested I started a support ticket, Microsoft replied that the bug is known since the January update (in my case since March), they are working on a fix!

        best regards


    1. We solved this problem by taking the older version of “Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationPages.dll” and replacing it at “C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80_app_bin”. Most likely it is very bad to do this, but the ligtbox now works.


      1. Hi Dmitriy,
        manually copying sharepoint files leads to an unsupported SharePoint installation.
        It would be good if you could open a support case to get this investigated.
