KB2656370 Failures

This question has suggested answer(s)

I haven't dug too deep into it yet, but I wanted to reach out and see if anyone is having the same problem...

I am seeing a very large numbers of failures this week for patch KB2656370, probably about 75% of machines the install was ran on.  The patch fails when the patch management cycle is re-run.  Has anyone else seen this?  What did you do to resolve it?

Thanks in advance.

  • This has happened before. It seems to happen with .NET updates in particular. You just have to dump the file onto the pc and run it silently with a script such as this:

    <ScriptExport xmlns:xsi="www.w3.org/.../XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="www.w3.org/.../XMLSchema" xmlns="www.kaseya.com/.../Scripting">

    - <Procedure name="KB2656370 - XP">

    - <Body description="KB2656370 - Security Update">

    - <If description="KB2656370 - Security Update">

     <Condition name="True" />

    - <Then>

    - <Statement description="" name="GetVariable" continueOnFail="false" osType="XP">

  • Have you tried by unchecking the option "Delete package after install (from working directory)"

  • Deleted patch (NDP1.1sp1-KB2656370-X86.exe) from patch source and re-scheduled machine update work for me.

  • Is there any way to make this work through Kaseya Patch Management?  

    I did some testing and it's still failing.  

    I really don't want to create and deploy a custom script for a patch that should install through patch management.  

    I have had some luck on failed machines doing what mikel described of letting the patch fail, clearing from the file source and re-running, but I can't do that over thousands of workstations.


  • Why can't I import your procedure? It says there is an error in the XML document...
