21 days before unmanaged 8.1 systems are locked out of getting security updates. And I'm still seeing issues with folks trying to get the update installed.
I worked with Robert (the PowerShell genius) to build a PowerShell tool that let's you run some of the commands in the post in the answers forum as well as checking on the free space in the C drive and in the reserved partition.
This however is very disturbing. I can confirm that after installing KB2919355 and running that dism command you get a failure
Seeing what I can find about it now.
For those running default SBS 2003 R2/2008 and 2011 with WSUS - it auto approves security updates to servers and workstations. If you have an 8.1 or R2 deployed in that network, KB2919355 will be automatically approved and probably automatically installed tonight.
Just be aware and watch your patch settings.
2919355 is deemed a critical security update and thus will automatically be installed if you have not changed the settings.
For those of you behind WSUS, Intune or System center the less than 30 days before KB2919355 has to be installed has been extended.
Folks who patch with WSUS/Intune or System center have until August to roll out KB2919355
The issue with WSUS has now been fixed. You'll see on your manually or WU updates boxes that already have KB2919355 ANOTHER KB2919355 this time a much smaller update that fixes just the issue with the WSUS deployment
