i just built 2x 2016 exchange servers on 2012r2, but served by 2016.
Does anyone have a good site which tracks these things in a list for each month of releases?
http://patchchart.com is my go-to, as referenced above, but it's down at the moment.
There isn't really a single source of 'shit windows update information' because its increasingly difficult to identify if WU was the cause, or if it was something else.
Looks like Microsoft won't be publishing Security Bulletins next year, but will be providing a searchable DB...
hopefully we can seach on IsShit=1 and this all goes away.
probably patch related.
Anyone had problems with losing (all) data on redirected folders that don't have offline files enabled?
I haven't investigated the issue yet (and likely won't get an opportunity to), however we have significant amounts of our user base reporting the issue.
Their 'favorites' folder is redirected and after the November patches on Windows 10 pre and post Anniversary builds we've seen users have to resort to VSS Snapshots to restore their favourites.
I've not done any testing on the November patches yet, and am still bitter about the security only ones being released as "superseded" instead of actually fixing the detection methods.
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3199172 indicates that UNC Hardening is now required for scheduled tasks, this may also apply to group policy, which may cause strange behavior with your folder redirection, That's the only thing that sticks out for me.
Thanks for the tip. I had a quick look at the description of UNC hardening in the following KB, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3000483 and do not think that is likely to be the case in this scenario.
I've spoken to the people who put this in place, and it seems likely that a script that is executing on logon could be interfering with this folder specifically.
False positives on Windows DLL's after November updates being reports by users of Malwarebytes.
Had a few nasty ones this month - backup exec broken see link below
"BackupExec Management Service was unable to start. Connection open and login was successful, but then an error occurred while enabling MARS for this connection. (provider: Shared Memory Provider, error: 15 - Function not supported)"
Also ran into a few issues with VCenter servers - but the tech that resolved it didnt mention the patches causing the issues
November update bricks some Lenovo servers.
That's what you get for buying Lenovo.
If you were running a Hyper-V host on one of those servers, and updated the Host OS, the server wouldn't boot.
If you didn't update the server, but updated all the guests on that host, the guests would be fine (because they use don't use the Lenovo UEFI to boot).
Guest-To-Host bugs can happen, but are very rare, and patched very quickly.
Seeing about 30% of desktops/laptops have their DHCP client shit itself.
netsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset
seems to fix.
caused by what?
Whatever update came out this month.
I think its to do with kb3201845 - but most reports are thats to do with Wireless only, and i've seen this issue on a whole range of ethernet based connections.
Can Microsoft re-hire their QA team already...
MS Guy 1: Hey, We fucked up again, and computers are losing network connections.
MS Guy 2: Should will Pull the Update
MS Guy 1: Nah, We'll just put a purple message on the KB# and refer to it when people complain
MS Guy 2: Great.
we're not using 10 (apart from a handful of surface pro's) or 2016 here so nothing to worry about.
Great. Another engineer saw this kind of behavior with a Wi-Fi dongle last week - probably related.
Have passed this on.
My Mum also had an issue with her Windows 10 Dell Inspiron 7000. Wish I had seen this first. I ended up installing the Intel wifi drivers over the top which appeared to fix it.
