Installation Notes:

If you haven’t installed Exchange Server yet, you can use the info at Quicker Exchange installs complete with service packs and rollups to save you some time.

Microsoft Update can’t detect rollups for Exchange 2010 servers that are members of a Database Availability Group (DAG). See the post Installing Exchange 2010 Rollups on DAG Servers for info, and a script, for installing update rollups.

Update Rollups should be applied to Internet facing Client Access Servers before being installed on non-Internet facing Client Access Servers.

If you’re installing the update rollup on Exchange servers that don’t have Internet access, see “Installing Exchange 2007 & 2010 rollups on servers that don’t have Internet access” for some additional steps.

Also, the installer and Add/Remove Programs text is only in English – even when being installed on non-English systems.

Note to Forefront users:

If you don’t disable Forefront before installing a rollup or service pack, and enable afterwards, you run the risk of Exchange related services not starting. You can disable Forefront by going to a command prompt and navigating to the Forefront directory and running FSCUtility /disable. To enable Forefront after installation of a UR or SP, run FSCUtility /enable.

Download the rollup here. It will be available via Windows Update May 26th.

Installation Notes:

If you haven’t installed Exchange Server yet, you can use the info at Quicker Exchange installs complete with service packs and rollups to save you some time.

Microsoft Update can’t detect rollups for Exchange 2010 servers that are members of a Database Availability Group (DAG). See the post Installing Exchange 2010 Rollups on DAG Servers for info, and a script, for installing update rollups.

Update Rollups should be applied to Internet facing Client Access Servers before being installed on non-Internet facing Client Access Servers.

If you’re installing the update rollup on Exchange servers that don’t have Internet access, see “Installing Exchange 2007 & 2010 rollups on servers that don’t have Internet access” for some additional steps.

Getting the Kaspersky Engine to Successfully Update in Forefront Security for Exchange

February 8, 2009 Leave a comment

For the most part, the AV engines in Forefront Security for Exchange update without issues. But occassionally, I see event ID 6014 in the application event log, which say:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: GetEngineFiles Event
Category: Engine Error
Event ID: 6014
Date: 2/7/2009
Time: 10:53:00 PM

Description: Microsoft Forefront Server Security encountered an error while performing a scan engine update. Scan Engine: Kaspersky5 Update Path: http://forefrontdl.microsoft.com/server/scanengineupdate/x86/Kaspersky5 Proxy Settings: Disabled Error Code: 0xC0001F58 Description: The operation timed out.

When trying to update the engine manually from within the Forefront console, the same problem happens – the update fails to finish in a timely manner. Eventually, we see event ID 7006, which says:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Microsoft Forefront Security
Event Category: Health Status
Event ID: 7006

Description: At least one of the engines enabled for updates has not been updated in the last week. For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

I’ve seen this enough on both Hub Transport and Edge Transport servers to go diving for a solution. Fortunately, we can extend the timeout period so that the engine can be updated. Here’s how:

Open the trusty regedit on the server and navigate to

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Forefront Server Security\Exchange Server

Create a new DWORD, “EngineDownloadTimeout“. Give it a decimal value of 600. Close regedit. No service or server restarts are necessay. This increases the timeout from the default of 5 minutes to 10 minutes. My testing has shown that this is long enough for the Kaspersky engine to update successfully. You can force an update in Forefront by opening the Forefront Server Security Administrator console, and going to Settings>Scanner Updates. Highlight the Kaspersky Antivirus Technology engine, and click Update Now. Or, you can just wait for the next update cycle.
