Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

Recommended Posts

It appears that KB3184471 was made to supersede update KB3160352 in MS16-081.

Not sure why that one does not install.

Tomorrow we shall see if this experiment survives the unified update model.

My concern is that perhaps with the new rollup format, Microsoft may introduce checks on Server 2012 rollups that will identify Windows 8, and halt installation.  I will try extracting the updates with 7-zip to see what's inside.  Perhaps standalone installers for each updates can be extracted and ran separately.

Tomorrow will tell.  :)

There is a way to extract the .cab file inside the .msu file, and install the updates separately, but it requires analyzing the update.mum file, and knowing which .mum component file(s) correspond to the respective individual patches.

But given the history with the update rollups for Server 2012, where they all installed successfully on my test VM, I'm sure the security rollups will install just fine.

I'll keep checking. :)

@JodyT, you may begin testing!

I was about to post similarly.  Now before I install, as of ** right now ** what is the difference between the Security Only and the Monthly Rollup?  As of right now, should they not be identical?  The Monthly Rollup is slightly bigger.

For the test I have only downloaded the Flash, IE10, and Security Only.  From what I understand, the .NET updates are included in the Security Only.  So if I had v3.5 installed, I'd only need the single file.

Here we go!

My bad:  The IE 10 update is included in the security only update.  Silly me.

:P

Well it worked.  Both the Flash and Security Only update installed without issue.  So I wonder what I passed up by not installing the Monthly Rollup for October?

Now a tad off-topic, but what does the mean for Vista come April 2017?  Vista retains the old separate update model, while the classic release of Server 2008 adopts the unified update model.  I wonder if Server 2008 Security Only updates will install to Vista?

Server 2008 uses the same update "old" update model as Vista, I think. Just checked the Security Bulletin: Server 2008 and Vista still get to choose individual patches.

Welp, now I have to update the repository... I should make a new folder for the new cumulative security updates, to distinguish between the pre-October 2016 and post-October 2016 patch releases.

I'm surprised that there was no separate .NET Monthly Rollup

https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dotnet/2016/08/15/introducing-the-net-framework-monthly-rollup/

Also the Monthly Rollup includes "Reliability Updates".  What exactly are those?  Drivers?  I just can't be sure.

Must be similar to what the Rollup Updates included. You should be able to see the changes in this page (although right now it doesn't contain anything useful related to this month's patches): https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/22811/windows-server-2012-update-history

Other than the ICMP and Japanese character-mapping issues, it appears I've got everything else covered with the Security Only updates.  Thanks for that link greenhillmaniac

No problem. Also, the reason the .NET Rollup didn't release is probably related to not having any kind of security fix this month (just check the Security Bulletin to see what I mean)

For how long will Server 2008 keep getting updates?

Until those stop coming out, it looks like Vista will be the only Microsoft OS whose users continue to enjoy maximum freedom! :thumbup
