It is also applicable to customers who installed the globally available release.

Hotfix KB4488598 Prerequisite Check

Before we install hotfix KB4488598, I would like to perform prerequisite check first. This is because I had seen lot user comments who experienced prerequisite check warnings while installing SCCM 1810 hotfixes. We know that with SCCM 1810, the prerequisite check is more resilient. Warnings can be ignored but not errors else they might halt the hotfix installation.

Here are two guides that would help in-case you see any warnings or errors while installing SCCM 1810.

  • SCCM 1810 SQL Server Native Client Update Warning Prerequisite – Link

In my lab setup, when I did a KB4488598 prerequisite check, i found just one warning. Potential SQL server performance issue caused by change tracking retention period. Warning – Configuration Manager detects the site database has a backlog of SQL change tracking data.

This warning can be skipped as it doesn’t halt the installation. I chose to skip this warning and install the hotfix. However I recommend prerequisite check to be done before installing the hotfix.

Prajwal…upgrade was completed successfully per your instructions. Where is the updated console file stored if I want to create a package to deploy?

I am running Config Manager 1810, Console Version 5.1810.1075.2000, Site Version 5.0.8740.100 and when I try to run the Pre-Req check, It clears out the status with “No items found” and just sits there in the “Checking the prerequisites” stage. I have also tried just running the “Install update pack” and get the same behavior. Symantec Anti Virus is disabled when running update.

You are a great… Read more »

Good day,
I have resolved the issue.

The SYSTEM account was missing from the folder Properties Security tab and I had to add it back.

“$:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\EasySetupPayload”

I have also discovered that the LocalHost\Administrators and LocalHost\Users accounts were missing from the root software source folder in the Security tab.

Issue resolved itself. For those of you who get into the same situation: Wait a day before trying to add a DP after the upgrade. Not sure what was still going on, but 12-13 hours after the upgrade the DP started to install all of a sudden without any intervention from my side. I’ll test with another one next week, for now I am happy it works…

Hi, has anyone encountered the following issue?: I have updated SCCM from 1709 to 1810, then added the hotfix KB4488598, all done yesterday. Everything seemed fine until I tried to install a new Distribution Point today. I added it with exactly the same configuration as dozens before. When the process finished, the Servers and Site Systems entry was created with the Distribution point Role, but the DP did not show up in Distribution Points, Distribution Point Configuration Status, Component Status, SQL queries or the distmgr.log. It seems like it was never added to the database. When I open the properties… Read more »
