A little update on this …..

You cannot install the February Cumulative update on you server unless you have the December CU installed the dilemma is that the Feb CU unlike Dec CU does not contain all the previous updates, or a better option is to wait for the “Uber” package which will contain all the previous updates, this package should be out in few weeks from now but no ETA defined .
