Caution: Microsoft KB hotfixes. how to prevent disaster

    Question

  • Hello Experts,

    Last month, we ran into a situation where after applying  Exchange & KB2506146 and KB2506143 there was a major incident that affect Exchange,Lync,Sharepoint because of these patches

    I would like to know if you know of any websites that advise what hotfixes should be or not applied to a Windows platform[Exchange 2010, Lync 2010, Sharepoint 2010, WIndows server 2008 R2/2012, so on}

     

    For instance, I just found the link below that might be useful in the future to prevent any other disaster

    Looking forward hearing from you

  • there isn't really a single place to query. beside keeping an eye on the community, having testsystems is your best option really. I know thats propably not the answer you like to hear, but with the multiple ways of product use and environment scenarios, few problems show up for all.

  • I don't think so we can find specific link to test hot fixes. It is better test hot fixes in your test environment before applying to production.

    Moreover exchange queries can be asked in concerning forum: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/category/exchangeserver/
