SCCM logic detects failure for some .Net 2 or 3.5 hotfix although successfully installed

Recently (and previously actually), we had some issue when using SCCM to deploy security updates specifically for the following KBs which are either Microsoft .Net Framework 2 SP2 or Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 SP1:

  • MS11-100 – KB2656352, KB2657424
  • MS11-078 – KB2572073
  • MS11-044 – KB2518864

So far this has affected some population of Windows XP and Windows 2003 x86 servers. Read the rest of this entry »

Incorrect Next Run Time field in Task Scheduler in Windows Server 2008

This morning I was setting up a scheduled tasks on my Windows 2008 R2 server. I set up the trigger to start at 10 pm on Friday, but when I saved the tasks, the next run time showed something like 4pm on the next Tuesday! Strangely enough, if I query the same task from command line, the next run time is correct.

I found the KB950035 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950035) which explains this issue, but when I clicked the link to the hotfix, it only shows Windows Vista for download. Undeterred, I downloaded the hotfix and tried to run on the Windows 2008 server only to be told that the OS is incorrect for the hotfix.

Digging through forums a bit more, I found out that the hotfix is included in the service pack 2 which is recently released. So to fix it, you have to install SP2.
