Update LDAPCP in the SharePoint farm

Update the solution

On the server running the central administration:

  1. Start a SharePoint management shell and run Update-SPSolution:
# This will start a timer job that will deploy the update on SharePoint servers. Central administration will restart during the process
Update-SPSolution -GACDeployment -Identity "LDAPCP.wsp" -LiteralPath "F:\Data\Dev\LDAPCP.wsp"
  1. Visit central administration > System Settings > Manage farm solutions: Wait until solution status shows “Deployed”.

If status shows “Error”, restart the SharePoint timer service on servers where depployment failed, start a new PowerShell process and run Update-SPSolution again.

Finalize the update

Update-SPSolution updates the bits only on the servers running the service “Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application”, but LDAPCP must be updated on all SharePoint servers.
To complete the update, follow the steps described in the section “Finalize the installation” in the install page.

Breaking changes

Version 10 is a major update that has breaking changes. Updating to v10 (or newer) will reset claim type configuration list, and all customization made to that list will be lost.
