Recommended Updates Windows Server 2012 R22016-10-30T20:12:41+00:00

Updates you should take care of before installing Citrix components

If you are running a Remote Desktop Services Infrastructure (RDS) with Citrix XenApp, VMware View or doesn´t use any third party extension at all you will have to install a bunch of Updates to resolve the most bugs you could run into from a Operating System perspective. There are two Knowledge Base articles available for RDS at Microsoft that explain the prerequisites and necessary steps to install these updates.

I don´t know if you ever tried to dig into these articles and get all the necessary information. In my eyes it´s not an easy process as it should be. Therefore I´m writing this blog to get you through it and to give you an fast overview of what needs to be installed for every specific infrastructure role.

This blog won´t cover the client updates, just Windows Server 2012 R2.

Available information from Microsoft

Here are the Microsoft Knowledge Base Articles you need to know if you have RDS running:

A few words about the Updates…

You should try to avoid installing all of these updates if you don´t have problems with RDS in your environment. If everything is running fine, forget this article. But if you feel like something is not working as expected go through the updates and the descriptions and check if you could resolve one of your issues by installing the specific update. The attached script will help you find the installed and missing updates for every RDS role.

Prerequisites in my lab

I have a fully patched Windows Server 2012 R2 server available for my test with all RDS roles installed on it (without the virtualization role because it cannot be installed side by side with the Session Host role on the same system). After that I ran my script and checked what is already installed and what not.

With a fully patched system the Rollups and Updates listed below are already installed (so forget about them):

Rollups

  • KB2919355
  • KB3000850
  • KB3013769

Updates

  • KB3108326
  • KB3123913
  • KB3146978
  • KB3078676

I had to make a few test rounds and installed the updates on three different servers in my lab to get only the updates that are needed. Somehow the behaviour documented in the table at the end of this blog might change with future updates. It should be reproducable today with fully patched Windows Server 2012 R2 servers.

The PowerShell script

Here is the script you can use to check your infrastructure roles. It only checks for the presence of the infrastructure roles and the updates that belong to them. Use it as your own risk.

The PSADK packages….

If you have never heard of the PSADK Toolkit you should have a look at my previous blog post about it. I created packages for all the necessary referenced updates in this article.

You can download all of them in one big package or only the one´s you need.

Overview of updates and further information

This overview has additional information for every update. Go through it to find the MSU names, prerequisites or the installation order for your own needs. All information without warranty. If you feel something is wrong or works different for you let me know.

I hope you find it useful.
