Update Rollup 10 (UR10) for Exchange Server 2007 SP3 released

February 13, 2013 1 comment

Microsoft has released the following update rollup for Exchange Server 2010:

  • Update Rollup 10 for Exchange Server 2007 SP3 (KB2788321)

If you’re running Exchange Server 2007 SP3, you need to apply Update Rollup 10 for Exchange 2007 SP3 to address the issues listed below.

Remember, you only need to download the latest update for the version of Exchange that you’re running.

Here is a list of the fixes included in Update Rollup 10:

  1. Coexistence with Microsoft Exchange Server 2013: You can now install Exchange Server 2013 in your existing Exchange Server 2007 organization. To do this, you must install Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 Cumulative Update 1 (CU1). This is because you cannot install Exchange Server 2013 in your existing Exchange Server 2007 organization by using the Exchange Server 2013 RTM installation media.
  2. 2783779 A hidden user is still displayed in the Organization information of Address Book in OWA in an Exchange Server 2007 environment.
  3. new daylight saving time (DST) updates for Exchange Server 2007 SP3.
  4. 2809279 Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Exchange Server Could Allow Remote Code Execution

Download the rollup here.

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.

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.

Microsoft Re-releases Several Exchange Update Rollups Due to Code Signing Issue

October 11, 2012 1 comment

Microsoft has discovered that digital certificates used to sign some files in recent Update Rollups for Exchange Server 2010 and Exchange Server 2007 will expire prematurely, some as soon as the next couple of months. This was documented in a recent Security Advisory. As a result, Microsoft has released corrected versions of Update Rollup 4 for Exchange Server 2010 SP2, Update Rollup 7 for Exchange Server 2010 SP1, and Update Rollup 8 for Exchange Server 2007 SP3. For the most part, nothing from a code or functionality/feature set changes, with the exception of Update Rollup 4 for Exchange Server 2010 SP2. That rollup includes a fix for  a problem with Outlook 2010 and 2013 where only one result is returned when clicking “view all results”. That fix, from KB 2756987, is now included. All of these Update Rollups, dubbed the “V2″ of each, are now available for download at the links below.

When installing these Update Rollups, it is not required to uninstall the original version.

Microsoft has noted in another Advisory from Security Research and Defense that this isn’t an Exchange issue, and is reissuing other recent releases as well. This includes some security patches. I suggest you read that advisory to see how it may impact other systems in your environment.

Microsoft has also released a WinVerifyTrust package to verify that the issue is resolved. Download the appropriate version if you’d like to ensure you’re safe.

It’s also important to know that some third-party applications and solutions may display unexpected results if they query these incorrect time stamps. As a result it’s recommended that you install the v2 versions even if you already have the original v1 version installed. Microsoft states: “We encourage all customers to apply the re-released, re-signed security updates as they become available. As an additional defense-in-depth measure, we recommend that customers also apply the updated WinVerifyTrust package which serves as an effective way for Windows and Microsoft applications to extend the validity period of these packages beyond the premature expiration date. We should be clear that the re-released, re-signed security updates by themselves are sufficient to address the potential compatibility issue and the WinVerifyTrust package is not strictly necessary – it is offered as a defense-in-depth option to customers who want to ensure that this issue does not affect them between now and the time they apply the updated security updates.”

This latest blunder doesn’t give Exchange IT professionals a warm fuzzy feeling. This is the latest in a string of bungled releases that have had to be released due to some problem. While I applaud Microsoft in identifying and correcting the issue without trying to hide it, I have to wonder if it’s safe to install any patches for fear they may further break an Exchange environment. A long-standing belief that many have is to not install RTM software – wait till the first service pack comes out. I’ve never held on to that, but Microsoft sure isn’t doing much in the public eye to help rid that believe. Let’s hope this is a lesson learned and this type of public humiliation for Microsoft doesn’t become any more of a pattern.

August 14, 2012 1 comment

Microsoft has released the following update rollup for Exchange Server 2010:

  • Update Rollup 8 for Exchange Server 2007 SP3 (KB2734323)

If you’re running Exchange Server 2007 SP3, you need to apply Update Rollup 8 for Exchange 2007 SP3 to address the issues listed below.

Remember, you only need to download the latest update for the version of Exchange that you’re running.

Here is a list of the fixes included in update rollup 8:

  1. 2699574 Microsoft Exchange Information Store service may stop responding when you perform a search on Exchange mailboxes in an Exchange Server 2007 environment
  2. 2701037 Events 4999 and 7034 are logged and the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service crashes on an Exchange Server 2007 mailbox server
  3. 2730089 Microsoft Exchange Information Store service may stop responding when you perform a search on Exchange mailboxes in an Exchange Server 2007 environment
  4. 2732525 Outlook keeps prompting you for credentials and incorrectly connects to an out-of-site global catalog after you install Update Rollup 6 for Exchange Server 2007 SP3.

Update Rollup 8 for Exchange Server 2007 SP3 also resolves the issue that is described in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS12-058: Vulnerability in Microsoft Exchange Server WebReady document viewing could allow remote code execution: August 14, 2012

Download the rollup here.

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.

April 17, 2012 Leave a comment

Microsoft has released the following update rollup for Exchange Server 2007:

  • Update Rollup 7 for Exchange Server 2007 SP3 (KB2655203)

If you’re running Exchange Server 2007 SP3, you need to apply Update Rollup 7 for Exchange 2007 SP3 to address the issues listed below.

Remember, you only need to download the latest update for the version of Exchange that you’re running.

Download the rollup here.

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.
