How to download and install the June 2019 security updates

windows security updates june 2019

All Windows client systems are configured to download and install security updates automatically shortly after release. It is possible to run manual checks for updates to install these as early as possible.

We suggest that backups are created before any updates are installed as updates may introduce issues of their own or in worst case, break the system.

You can run a manual check for updates in the following way:

  1. Tap on the Windows-key, type Windows Update, and select the result.
  2. A click on “check for updates” runs a manual check. Updates may be installed automatically or on user request depending on system settings.

Office 2019 – no more patching via Symantec discussion

I need a solution

I’m starting to test deployment and patching for Office 2019.

Am I reading the microsoft docs correctly that Symantec will no longer be capable of patching because msi updates will no longer be pushed?

Enterprise customers who install the volumed license versions will need to decide to either allow updates via Microsoft CDNs, or manually make patches accessible on a share (to alleviate bandwidth concerns).  

More info here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/office2019/update

I have seen Microsoft bork windows updates plenty in the last year or two, but office updates have been pretty stable.  Are Symantec customers allowing updates to happen via the CDN?  It’s usually our internal preference to test updates before they go out, but even if I download them and put them on the share, it seems like all machines would be getting updates at the same time without a way for me to scope updates to a test group of PCs.

Thoughts?  What are you planning to do in your environment (if you’re not moving to the cloud)?

Thanks!

ECS Portal Web UI Questions – Browser support and accessibility

Hi All,

I have some questions about the ECS Portal Web UI:

1. Does ECS support the Microsoft Edge or Apple Safari web browsers?

From the release notes i see that it support Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer 11. Can’t see any others, so I thought to ask the wider community.

2. Can the ECS Web UI be accessed from a browser other devices like a tablet/smart phone without any loss of functionality?

Thanks,

Luke

The following cipher suites are enabled and in this priority order by default by the Microsoft Schannel Provider:

TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384_P256 Yes TLS 1.2
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384_P384 Yes TLS 1.2
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256_P256 Yes TLS 1.2
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256_P384 Yes TLS 1.2
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA_P256 Yes TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2

ShareFile Error “The folder structure that you tried to download is too deep to be supported by most operating systems….. your folders and files.”

The Microsoft Windows API defines the maximum file path limit as 260 characters for a fully specific path-and-filename. This includes the beginning of the directory to the file extension. While there are some exceptions to this limit, ShareFile typically enforces a file path limit on files upload or downloaded via our various apps and tools.

File Path errors refer to the length of the file path and file name rather than the size of the file. If you encounter this error when attempting to upload or download a file using one of our apps, you may need to navigate to a deeper folder within the structure you are trying to download. By downloading at a level of 1 or 2 folders deeper than the root folder, you may be able to still download the majority of your data without having to recreate the folder structure on your own computer.

Additionally, you may want to consider renaming lengthy file names that occupy the majority of the limit.
