Hi Guys,

One of my clients used this psconfig command after installing the March 2021 CU

psconfig –cmd upgrade –inplace b2b –force –cmd –installcheck -noinstallchec

What is the use of these parameters?

–installcheck -noinstallchec

Is it the correct way of doing it?

Thanks

    Hi anonymous user,

    This parameter is not documented and should only be used if advised by Microsoft Support. It prevents PSConfig from verifying that all machines have the appropriate binaries installed which guarantees a consistent installation base on all machines in the farm.

    Please advise your client to use the parameters outlined in this blog post:

    Thanks,
