Non-compliant with MS Patches using SCCM

Non-compliant with MS Patches

Found few servers to be non-compliant from the patching team. When checked, found that the patches were getting failed when deployed using SCCM. This issues was fixed by renaming the folder named “SoftwareDistribution” located in C:\Windows\. Further to this found that the service named “Windows Modules Installer” was disabled. Changed it to manual. Now the SCCM pop-up and view updates in Control Panel were populated.

Please wait for the Windows Modules Installer.

One of my windows 2008 didn’t come after reboot. Upon checking the console, saw a message stating “Please wait for the Windows Modules Installer.”. Had to bring up the server at the earliest. It took about an hour, tried reset but server was getting back on to same page. Application team was eagerly waiting for it to come back. Started looking for alternative methods to bring it up.

When checking server was pinging and able to shared folders. Hence, connected to the server from services.msc using the option “Connect to another computer..”

Disabled “Windows Module Installer” service and restarted the server.

Bang, server was back on its home page.

Thanks,
