Veeam Logoby tdc-ma » Fri Nov 07, 2014 11:24 am

Hello, just installed Veeam free server for the first time for testing, i have an alert for 3 different Hyper-V hosts added to Veeam, They all show "One or more critical updates are missing" ... and listing

...................................................................................................
KB2884846: Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 update rollup: October 2013.
Description: Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 update rollup: October 2013.

KB2913695: OffloadWrite is doing PrepareForCriticalIo for the whole VHD in a Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V host NTFS.sys. Performance improvement when there is an offload write for a virtual hard disk (VHD) in the host. Description: OffloadWrite is doing PrepareForCriticalIo for the whole VHD in a Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V host NTFS.sys.

All 3 hosts are Server 2012 R2, fully updated (with critical and recommended updates, only silver light not installed), manually downloading the updates (x64 versions) in question and attempting to install them fails with "This update is not applicable to your computer"

thanks

Yes, there could be different definition IDs for this fixed from Microsoft, thus this check informs you about missing updates. We will update this topic once more info is available.

+1 for this issue. Three fully patched Hyper-V 2012 Servers, but Veeam is reporting that all servers have one or more updates that are needed.

We've enhanced and re-uploaded update definitions to avoid notification false positives, should resolve most of the issues. Please continue reporting if anything still does not look right. Thanks!

And i you don't want to wait for up to a week for B&R to pull the new update definition file, you can download it directly from our web site, and save it over the existing file in the B&R installation folder > http://dev.veeam.com/backup/vbrupdate.vdf

I searched in \Program Files\Veeam\Backup & Replication (and all subfolders), but an old version of this file you provided, doesn't exist anywhere in there. Neither in Program Files (x86). Where should it go?

So how I force Veeam to require it? I have rescanned all the hosts for updates, and it keeps reporting updates missing, and this file still does not exist. I just want to get rid of these false missing update notifications now.

Ok, I was able to find the file \ProgramData\Veeam.

I deleted the file that was there, then rescanned. No, instead of ~15 updates for each fully patched VM host, 2 updates for each VM host is returned. Though again, Windows Update on each host is reporting that "There are no applicable updates" when scanning for All updates.
