The SharePoint Health Analyzer detected an error. Product / patch installation or server upgrade required

After I installed a Cumulative update for SharePoint Foundation 2010 farm, I got the following Event viewer error :

The SharePoint Health Analyzer detected an error. Product / patch installation or server upgrade required. All required products must be installed on all servers in the farm, and all products should have the same patching and upgrade level across the farm.

Cause:

There is a mismatch of  windows updates or SharePoint updates (Cumulative Update,Service Pack …etc) in one or more servers in the farm, where all required products must be installed on all servers in the farm, and all products should have the same patching and upgrade level across the farm.

Solution:

You should be a ware that the Patching/Updating  SharePoint is performed through a two-step process :

  1. The updated binaries are first installed.
  2. psconfig.exe must be run to update the SharePoint databases and upgrade SharePoint Products.

In my case, The SharePoint update has been installed and I need only to run SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard.

To run SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard using  SharePoint Management Shell follow the mentioned steps below :

  • Open SharePoint Management Shell as Administrator.
  • Run the following command to update the SharePoint databases and upgrade SharePoint Products.
PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent 
-install -cmd installfeatures

Run PSConfig.exe

To run SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard User Interface (PSConfigUI.exe) follow the mentioned steps below :

  • Start Menu > Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products > SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard.
