Updating the Secondary Sites with Hotfix KB15152495

After you install SCCM 2207 hotfix KB15152495 update on a primary site, pre-existing secondary sites must be manually updated. Read more about secondary site installation in SCCM to get an idea on how to install secondary sites in SCCM.

To update a secondary site in the Configuration Manager console, select Administration > Site Configuration > Sites > Recover Secondary Site, and then select the secondary site. Run the following SQL Server command on the site database to check whether the update version of a secondary site matches that of its parent primary site:

select dbo.fnGetSecondarySiteCMUpdateStatus ('SiteCode_of_secondary_site')
  • If the value 1 is returned, the site is up-to-date, with all the hotfixes applied on its parent primary site.
  • If the value 0 is returned, the site has not installed all the fixes that are applied to the primary site, and you should use the Recover Secondary Site option to update the secondary site.

    Thank you for the great overview on the KB15152495 hotfix rollup. I was able to install the update successfully, and the console is reporting the update installed; however, Nessus is still reporting this as a vulnerability. I was wondering if others who have patched and use Nessus can report if they a similar issue or not.

    The Nessus plug-in crawls the registry entries in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates. I’m assuming since the version reported in Add/Remove Programs is 5.00.9088.1000 this is throwing a flag for Nessus, but I was just curious what others are experiencing.

  2. After the HotFix Installed to Primary Server, I’m getting Errors on all DPs Failling to install IIS, Non Zero Error Code 8, Permissions, Http Firewall or RDC identified as possible causes.
    We have been adjusting our Service account and Admin account group memberships could we have inadvertently caused this?

    What can I check?

    1. We are having the same problem and I’ve done everything I can think of to resolve it. IIS is definitely installed, I ran the powershell from another of Prajwal’s articles and it completes successfully.
      The correct accounts are admin on the DP’s, they always have been. I have double checked several times.
      All necessary firewall rules are enabled to allow traffic and always have been. I have double checked these too.
      We had an issue after going from 2203 to 2207 that was listed here in this guide above, so, we installed the hotfix figuring it would fix it. It didn’t.
      I have the failed to install vcredist message. I even installed it myself (even though it was already there) and I still get the error. I removed it and re-added it, still get the error.
      I also have “Distribution Manager has not tried to install IIS component of operating system to distribution point. You should install and configure IIS manually. Please ensure RDC is also enabled.” These are all existing DP’s that have been in service since 2017 so I don’t understand what it’s really trying to do when IIS is already installed. On one of them I removed the DP role, uninstalled IIS, removed it from SCCM altogether, then brought it back in as though it were new. Same errors. And the other two that I didn’t remove still say that they have not tried to install IIS component (even though they have it), they fail to install vcredist (again, they have it), and on the one I wiped out it also says “The distribution point is not installed or upgraded yet.” I’m at the end of my rope and there doesn’t seem to be any other way to get support other than to post here or on Reddit.

        1. Distribution Manager failed to install distribution point [“Display=\\xxxxxxxx.yyy.local\”]MSWNET:[“SMS_SITE=SC1”]\\xxxxxxxx.yyy.local\ on computer xxxxxxxx.yyy.LOCAL.

          Possible cause: Distribution Manager does not have sufficient rights to the computer.
          Solution: Verify that the site server computer account is an administrator on the distribution point computer.
          ———–
          Distribution Manager failed to process package “Configuration Manager Client Package” (package ID = SC100028).

          Possible cause: Distribution Manager does not have access to either the package source directory or the distribution point.
          Solution: Verify that distribution manager can access the package source directory/distribution point.

          Possible cause: The package source directory contains files with long file names and the total length of the path exceeds the maximum length supported by the operating system.
          Solution: Reduce the number of folders defined for the package, shorten the filename, or consider bundling the files using a compression utility.

          Possible cause: There is not enough disk space available on the site server computer or the distribution point.
          Solution: Verify that there is enough free disk space available on the site server computer and on the distribution point.

          Possible cause: The package source directory contains files that might be in use by an active process.
          Solution: Close any processes that maybe using files in the source directory. If this failure persists, create an alternate copy of the source directory and update the package source to point to it.
          ———-
          Logs have rolled over. I’ve been getting VcRedist and IIS errors every since.

        2. Failed to install IIS
          Distribution Manager Attempted to run a tool to install IIS component of operating sytem to distribution point “xxxxxxxx.yyy.local”. The tool returned non-zero error code 8. Reboot or Manual installation of IIS might be required to complete the configuration of IIS component of operating system. Also please ensure that the http(s) traffic is not blocked on this machine by firewall settings and RDC is Enabled.

    2. Having the same issue, almost identical steps followed.

      Primary, CMG and a remote DP do not have issue, but the 3 onsite DP do have the issue.

    Hi Prajwal,
    doyou still have any Windows 7 OS clients in your environment? if yes, was the agent version upgraded successfully.
    I still have some Windows 7 OS and the upgrade failed.

    any advise?
    Thanks,
    regards,
    Wissam

    1. Windows 7 isn’t supported any more. You must upgrade to Windows 10 or Windows 11.

  4. Great… after the console was updated properly I thought everything went fine. Unfortunately, I had a problem that the client version was not updated to a newer one and the stagingclient directory is still the previous. Has anyone had such issue? Is there a place where I can download the client 5.0.9088.1025?

    1. What is the client version that you see under the Autoupgrade client settings?.

  5. Hey Prajwal,

    thanks for the quick response, I assume you want me to make sure _NOT_ to run ConsoleSetup.exe from the …\cd.latest folder?

    Best Regards!

    1. That’s correct. Run the setup from the adminconsole folder that has list of folders containing the console setups.

  6. Hello,
    I’ve got the same problem after applying this hotfix.
    It is not possible to upgrade the admin console.
    I followed your advice, but nothing changed.
    Currently, the only option is to open it with the older version, but there is the warning about damaged data.
    Thank you in advance for your support.
    Best regards,

    1. Update :
      The problem remains after rebooting server.
      Checking the log files, I saw the following error in “ConfigMgrAdminUISetup.log” :
      “Installation failed with error code 1638”.
      And, in “ConfigMgrAdminAdminUISetupVerbose.log”, it indicates that another version of this product is already installed, and the installation of this version cannot continue.
      Hope this can help to find a solution.
      Thanks again for your support.

  7. Hello,
    I also applied the hotfix and have got the same problem with the upgrade of admin console.
    As you mentioned, i rebooted the server, open the console, launched the upgrade ; but nothing happens.
    I waited 30 minutes before writing this message.
    Thanks for the help.

    1. This is something that even I experienced after the hotfix installation. Server reboot trick worked for me.

      1. Thank you for your prompt reply.

  8. Hey Prajwal,

    i have updated and installed the newest patch inside the sccm.
    after installation the console wants an update and i installed the console update. the console installer opens but it does not update. what can i do?

    also i cant connect to with console on the server.
    How can i download the newest console, outside from the server?

    1. Try restarting the server once and then open the console and perform the upgrade.

    2. Hey Daniel,
      hey Prajwal,

      I have the same issue on our site server. I’m wondering whether I can just install the console from the \\sccmsiteserver\SMS_XYZ\tools\ConsoleSetup directory again. On any other machine I would just go for it, but on the site server I’m a bit more careful.

      Best Regards!
