    KB2982792 for wind2008

    Rookie


      Dear support

       

      After I downloading the latest version of shavlik metadata ( from BMC Server Automation product) , we find the hotfix KB2982792 only existed in Windows2003.

      Not sure, I checked the  Microsoft article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2982792 it should also apply to Windows2008.

       

      Just want to know :

      1- Why it only added to Windows2003 in current shavlik metadata?

      2- Do we have a plan for adding that to Windows2008?

       

      Best Regards

            Dear Charles

             

            Thanks for your kindly reply.

             

            After install the prerequisites, we found the OS are trying update the patch automaticlly, but this seems not under control.

             

            More questions about it

            1- It seems current Shavlik files only contain instructions to patch Windows2003 for KB2982792, is that the case?

            2- And also could you share the reason for not adding instruction to patch Win2008 ?

            3- Do we have the plan for adding the instruction ?

             

            Best Regards

            Silen

              Hello,

               

              We don't include detection and deployment logic for 2008 because KB2982792 is not applicable.  If you notice, the only download link on the KB2982792 page is for Server 2003.  The Microsoft article is misleading when it mentions 2008 as applicable.  For Vista / Server 2008 and Windows 7 / Server 2008R2 you should install 2813430 which we support as bulletin MS13-A04 in our detection. 

               

              I hope this makes sense.

               

              Best regards,

              Charles
