s2k8 Servicing Stack Update showing failed

Postby lioninstreet » 20.11.2018, 07:24

Running v11.5 for w61-x64, incl service packs

All downloads successful except for the 10/9/2018 updated Servicing Stack Update KB3177467 (replacing KB3020369). It is showing failed but then is oddly validated. I also noted that the convenience rollup KB3125574 of 5/2016 some are calling w2k8r2 sp2 is not being downloaded.

I might be opening a can of worms with this question but what is the process wsou use for the w61 update process? Does KB3177467 update and the convenience rollup need to be manually installed before running wsou with w61? Or are the individual updates being downloaded into wsou and the servicing stack update is not required?

Something went wrong on your WOU installation. MS has changed the link recently, and your WOU should have fetched it.

The next line you posted tells that WOU did download the dynamic version of the very same update (as .cab). So, it might still get installed.

Probably because of the way of extracting the WSUS Offline archive, not preserving time stamps of the text/list files (thus preventing wget to fetch the new list files). Maybe it's time to add a big fat note to the download page that tells people to allow Windows access to the downloaded archive file in its properties, removing the problematic NTFS ADS (containing the Zone Identifier) in the process, and that people are supposed to do that before extracting the archive.

Unfortunately, the files:

Code: Select all
wsusoffline/static/StaticDownloadLinks-w61-x64-glb.txt
wsusoffline/static/StaticDownloadLinks-w61-x86-glb.txt


do contain broken links for kb3177467:

Trac says, that the files StaticDownloadLinks-w61-x64-glb.txt and StaticDownloadLinks-w61-x86-glb.txt were last changed about 12 months ago:



Note, that the update of static download definitions works with a recursive download, which is independent of Trac. First, the file

Code: Select all
wsusoffline/static/StaticDownloadFiles-modified.txt


is downloaded. Then all files, which are referenced from this file, are downloaded to the same directory. But right now, the file StaticDownloadFiles-modified.txt is empty, which means, that there are no updates for the static download definitions available yet.

So, until WSUSUpdateAdmin replaces these files, these are just the results, which can be expected.



@lioninstreet: Just note, that kb3177467 and kb3177467-v2 are different files. kb3177467-v2 is an update and replacement for kb3177467.

The download for kb3177467 fails, because the download link in the file StaticDownloadLinks-w61-x64-glb.txt is broken.

The update kb3177467-v2 is extracted as a dynamic link from the WSUS catalog file. These dynamic links usually work, because they are more up to date.

This update seems to work just fine with the installation part of WSUS Offline Update, probably because it keeps the same kb number. This number is referenced from the file:

Code: Select all
wsusoffline/client/static/StaticUpdateIds-wupre-w61.txt


which seems to provide prerequirements, which are installed before the other updates.

Also, at least with the Linux download scripts, existing files are not deleted, as long as they are still referenced from the static download directory. So, you may actually end up with both kb3177467 and kb3177467-v2.

My mistake, I now see the v2 notation. Until WSUSUpdateAdmin replaces these files, it's no trouble to work with the results.

Regarding the convenience rollup KB3125574 of 5/2016, is the contents of this large update just being individually installed then?
