Patch update through ITMU in SMS 2003 environment

    Question

  • Hi,

    We are not able to push updates in Windows 7 and windows 2008 R2 clients from SMS 2003. Even if it shows success in some clients, physically no updates are available.

  • In addition to the above, check the patchinstall.log(c:\windows\system32\ccm\logs) for more information about the patches installation process ?

  • Hi Eswar,

       I have checked the Logs it shows successful, But when I check in the 2008 server or windows 7 client I found none of the security patch is Installed. What I chould find is all the patches are getting downloaded and available in the \windows\system32\ccm\cache\.. and then a folder with the packageid. But these are not getting installed. The diffrence I monitor with XP or 2003 clients is : In these PCs a file named PatchMonitor.xml is created in \windows\system32\VPcache\ folder whereas this file is not getting created in 2008 or Win 7 clients. Can anyone help me in finding out the solution.

  • Did you installed compatiability pack to manager win7 and server 2008?  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/974014/en-us

    ensure,the computers are scanned with Microsoft update tool successfully before running any patches from SMS.

    The file or folde vpcache is MU tool package which is required to run/install the Updates patches like syntax

    INSTALL FAILED: UpdateID = 804db346-55c5-44b7-8491-1ecf77062836, QNumber = 978601, Title = Security Update for Windows XP (KB978601), ExitCode = 1642, Executable = C:\WINDOWS\system32\VPCache\PackageID\SmsWusHandler.exe /InstallFile:"\\DPServer\SMSPKGx$\PackageID\804db346-55c5-44b7-8491-1ecf77062836\windowsxp-kb978601-x86-enu_49ae6ac4f6e0a609124f2ce6f80fcef249273c02.exe" /UpdateID:804db346-55c5-44b7-8491-1ecf77062836

  • Hi,

      The hotfix is already installed. Catalog file is getting updated in Win7 and 2K8 and also Vista clients and I chould see the request for updates in SMS from these clients. In SMS it shows even the patch update program distribution as successful but as I told above it is not practically getting installed on these clients. These updates are getting downloaded in these clients at the location  c:\windows\system32\ccm\cache\...pkgid same as shown in CSS\. No error is available in any log files. If No One has any solution, shall I close this Post as I am not getting any help since long

  • Yes, I know this is an old post, trying to clean them up before CM12 is released. J

     

    I hope that you have figured this out by now but if not I would recommend call CSS (MS support).
