Exchange 2010 SP3 Update Rollup 11 released and installation tips

Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP3 Update Rollup 11 Installtion tipsEdit: Update Rollup 18 is now available for Exchange 2010 SP3 see the post Exchange 2010 SP3 Update Rollup 18 installation tips.

On 15th September Microsoft released the Exchange 2010 SP3 Update Rollup 11.

I’ve installed this on my test SBS 2011 server, it took just 7 minutes 45 seconds from start to finish, by far the quickest update yet and my test server isn’t very powerful, so I wouldn’t expect it to take much longer than this in production.

The new update has been available for a few weeks now, and I have not seen any issues reported with it so I suspect it is safe to deploy in your production environment.

If you are doing a migration to Exchange 2016, then Exchange 2010 SP3 Update Rollup 11 is the minimum version that will be supported in a coexistance environment.

On 16th June Microsoft released the Exchange 2010 SP3 Update Rollup 10.

I’ve installed this on my test SBS 2011 server, it took just 21 minutes 23 seconds from start to finish, more than twice as long as the last update rollup, but my test rig was running a few other processes at the same time, so I wouldn’t expect this to take much longer than this in production.

Exchange 2010 Management Console Initialization Failed: The WS-Management service cannot process the request

Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP2 Update Rollup 6

I recently ran across a small problem while trying to open the Exchange 2010 Management Console. I received an initialization failure error message.

 

The full error message is below:
“The attempt to connect to http://server/Powershell user ‘Kerberos’ authentication failed: Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message: The WS-Management service cannot process the request. The system load quota of 1000 requests per 2 seconds has been exceeded. Send future requests at a slower rate or raise the quota for this user. The next request from this user will not be approved for at least xx milliseconds.”

Exchange Management Console - The ws-management service cannot process the request

To resolve the problem, I opened a command prompt and ran iisreset.

Exchange 2010 SP3 UR8 pulledhttp://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2014/12/09/exchange-releases-december-2014.aspx

Yet again the testing and quality assurance process for Exchange updates has failed! Each time this happens it knocks the confidence IT professionals have in deploying Exchange updates, I’m sure with the end result being more unpatched Exchange Servers in the wild.

Microsoft I think you need to up your game here, get the Exchange quality assurance process in order and don’t release any more Update Rollups or Patches which break things. Continue reading
