This is Tina Eichele, with SMUD and we've had some major issues with the MS Server Patches for July 2018 for G/Net Viewr and our 2008 R2 Web Server. The two KB's that appear to be root of issue are KB430556 and KB4340004. The issue is as follows:
Launch G/Net Viewer after patches installed on web server. Client G/Net viewer comes up as seen in attachment. Nothing we could find or do allowed it to be reset correctly. We checked all the files (including those mentioned in the snapshot - udb, ccm) as well as the registry and nothing showed changed. Yet it's coming up referencing Mobile Viewer (not G/Net Viewer).
Next we removed the KBs and get different KB. "... I go to uninstall it and that KB number is diffderent the KB I installed is coming up as KB4338612 (instead of the KB430004 uninstalled).
Anyone else having issues with this month's MS Server Patching?
thanks for any help provided Tina Eichele, firstname.lastname@example.org
Just a follow up to this note i posted. We didn't take the two patches
2018-07 Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.5.1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.1, 4.7.2 for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB4340556)
2018-07 Security Only Update for .NET Framework 3.5.1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.1, 4.7.2 for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB4340004)
which caused the problems with our G/Net Viewer use, but we did take the others. Monday (day after the patching was done on production) our Web Server service didn't restart after 3 am task (start/stop) ran. The automation to do this task has worked for 8+ years. In looking deeper at the patches taken, the App Admin found issue. We believe the new patches released this week will fix this issue.
New “bad” one is KB4338818 and the fix is ....
When an administrator tries to stop the World Wide Web Publishing Service (W3SVC), the W3SVC remains in a "stopping" state, but cannot fully stop or be restarted.
