November 2014 Update Rollup For Windows–And It Has Issues

Microsoft released November 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 yesterday. This rollup includes lots of fixes, including improved performance of a SOFS cluster during parallelized restores. As usual, I recommend waiting 4 weeks to let others be Microsoft’s testing canaries.

Correction: There are no known problems with the above update.

However, an update rollup released at the same time for Windows Server 2012 DOES in fact have a problem. Microsoft Hyper-V PM, Taylor Brown, tweeted that applying KB2996928 fixes the issue.

  1. This is a bit unrelated, but I just stumbled across this unexpected surprise in the Download Center–an overdue update to RDCMan.

    I’m keeping an eye on the DPM backups. I didn’t put the Nov UR on a Hyper-V host yet, but it’s on a SOFS cluster (troubleshooting a reproducible BSOD issue with Microsoft Support). So far, no issues to report….
