During a planned quarterly maintenance window, wanted to patch SharePoint 2013 servers with available hot fixes and cumulative updates (CU). As the first step, From Microsoft site http://technet.microsoft.com/library/dn789211%28v=office.14%29, requested hot fixes, Received an E-mail with hot fix links, downloaded those hot fixes and extracted to individual folders as in the below screen.
Navigated to "%Tmp%" location and tried catching the root cause of the failure from the log file generated "opatchinstall.txt". Found these lines while scanning through the log file: "Getting the data from file <path location> UBERSRV_2.cab"
Solution is simple! Just place all three extracted files together in the same folder and re-run the hot fix installation. It went through well after moving cab files in to the same folder where the hot fix installer ubersrv.exe was placed.
- In case, You cancelled the installation during patching, there are chances of the SharePoint binaries get corrupted! Repair SharePoint to fix the problem and then Re-run the installer.
- Try download the patch again from Microsoft Technet site and try again. It could happen due to corrupted file
- Make sure you downloaded all the cab files along with the installer executable file (ubersrv_1.cab & ubersrv_2.cab) and placed all of them in a same directory!
- Try Extracting the Installer (E.g. Setup.exe /extract:c:\Installer\) and then start the installation.
