Exchange 2013: Cumulative Update 6 Installation
On August 26, 2014 Microsoft released the cumulative update 6 so I decided to deploy and share the screens of my deployment.
Important warning: Please give 30 days to let the new update settle down and test in your lab before deployment in the production because I won’t be able to test everything in my lab which you have in your environment.
We also shared the release notes here.
Let us begin the deployment.
Download the Exchange 2013 CU6 from here.

Extract CU6 then run the setup with Run as administrator.
Click yes here
