    Seems no need of installing language packs before updating to a SP3.Because in earlier version such as in E2k10…we need to install the language packs before upgrading to a sp3.

    Please let me know.

  2. Sunder says:

    If you are doing an inplace upgrade on windows server 2008 R2 then you will already have the existing language packs.

    The above is for windows server 2012 and it supports only SP3 recommended.
