WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Apply KB2734608 to your WSUS systems from Patch Manager

Overview

This article describes how to apply Microsoft® KB2734608 to your Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server and console systems from SolarWinds Patch Manager.

This update includes all security fixes included in Microsoft KB2720211 and adds Microsoft Windows® 8 and Windows Server® 2012 client support to WSUS 3.0 SP2.

If you install or upgrade to Patch Manager 1.85 and you do not have KB2720211 or KB2734608 installed on the WSUS server, Patch Manager installs KB2734608 automatically. For local publishing to work, all WSUS systems in the publishing environment must be running the same WSUS version. This includes patches such as KB2734608.

Environment
