Pinned topic Problems with installing certain Windows Updates

‏2014-06-13T19:37:57Z |

Hello all,

I have a Windows 2003 R2 SP2 server running TEM 8.2.1409.0, also my network is private with no access to the Internet so this is an air-gapped deployment. I've seen some errors on some machines when installing certain windows updates using my BigFix deployment. After reboot is performed, some actions seemed to fail. After that failing error, The console keeps showing up that those updates are still needed on that machine. I tried to re-apply the Updates again with no luck. If I try to install those same updates using standalone executables, they come back saying the updates are already installed. As example, I have a Windows 2003 machine that keeps being flagged with update KB2810071, KB2837593, and KB2850079. If those updates have been installed correctly, that means the issues I am having are related to the BigFix not able to sense that the updates have bee installed on that computer. Those same updates were installed correctly on another Win2k3 machine and obviously are not being flagged as needed on the second Win2k3 system Any idea how to fix these kind of issues?

This behaviour is a bit frequent and I would like to find a solution besides ignoring or hiding the alert. 

Thanks for your help or input in advance, 

V/R,

Alex

    Hi Alex,

    The mentioned KBs were replaced (superseded) by later KBs. They are not needed if you have installed later KBs specified below:

    KB2837593 should be superseded by MS14-001 (KB2863902) / MS14-017 (KB2863926) / KB2880529
    KB2850079 should be superseded by MS14-023 (KB2878284) / KB2863818
    KB2810071 should be superseded by KB2837594 / KB2878281

    The 3 KBs above have been superseded, published site: Patches for Windows (English), version 2014.

    Hello,

    I have a similar issue with these updates in our 8.2.1409 site.  I have a Windows 7 system which shows KB2878316 (MS14-023) in Windows Update; neither that update, nor any of the other MS14-023 variants, show as relevant in BigFix for that system.

    Also, none of the other listed KBs show as applicable for this system.

     

    Thank you,

    Andrew

    Hi Sylvia,

    This is on an x86 system.  The fixlet you provided does resolve as relevant on my system.

    This is weird! Microsoft does not say any of these KB supersedes KB2878316...

    May I know after all these just-released fixlets installed whether the custom copy still shows relevant?

    Hi Sylvia,

    The custom fixlet does not, and did not, show relevant for this machine.

    Hi Andrew,

    We have just verified that KB2883052 has updated the same set of files (products) as KB2878316 in MS14-023. Since KB2883052 was released later, once you installed KB2883052, KB2878316 will not applicable and should not show relevant or required.

    The behavior you have observed is expected though Microsoft does not say KB2883052 has superseded KB2878316.

    We will publish the updates for MS14-023 so that the fixlets can reflect the applicability correctly.

    Thanks for your support and feedback!

    Regards,

    Sylvia

    Hi Sylvia,

    Thank you for the confirmation.  I'm very pleased to find that something that seemed to make no sense did, in fact, make no sense.  :)

    best,
