We successfully patch our SharePoint 2013 using March 2022 ans we successfully run the product configuration wizard. But we got this weird farm build number 15.0.5429.1000 (when we run the below power shell command), instead of 15.0.5431.1000 as per this link https://www.toddklindt.com/blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=346#SP2013.

$farm = Get-SPFarm
$farm.BuildVersion

so is our farm corrupted with this 15.0.5429.1000 build number? and why we got this number instead of 15.0.5431.1000?

Thanks

    @john john ,

    (Get-SPFarm).BuildVersion will not tell us if a specific CU has been installed, only those patches which include schema changes for the SharePoint config DB update this information.

    To check if your CU has been installed successfully, please go to Manage Patch Status page on SharePoint CA> Upgrade and Migration> Check product and patch installation status:

    Make sure you have both the KB installed and PSconfig is successfull post patch installation.
    No server is showing "upgrade required" on manager server in farm page.
    KB 5002170
    KB 5002172

    if you miss a patch it will show a different version number on manage server in farm page.
