Fix It | October 2016 Cumulative Windows Updates Crash SCOM Console

In my last post I’ve shared the console crashing issue you face after installing the security updates in  MS16-118 and MS16-126. Now Microsoft has published a new KBs to fix the console crashing issue in SCOM after applying these updates.

Individual hot fixes are available for the following list of Operating systems which you can download from here.

  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows Server 2008
  • Windows Server 2008R2
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2012 R2

For Windows 10 and Server 2016, the fix was applied to the latest cumulative updates.

October 2016 Cumulative Windows Updates Crash SCOM Console

It seems like the October 2016 cumulative Windows updates (KB3194798, KB3192392, KB3185330 &KB3185331) cause the SCOM consoles 2012/2016 in all Windows versions from Windows Server 2008 R2 up to 2016 and Windows 7 up to 10 Windows 10 to regularly crash without any doubt.

According to Microsoft Germany’s SCOM PFE Dirk Brinkmann  who has blogged about this issue here, the SCOM team is working on a fix for this as of now and no ETA for an resolution has been provided yet.

Once a fix is available you will be able to see it via SCOM team blog.
