UR2 Computer Monitoring Error Hotfix now available from Microsoft

If you are one of the fortunate few (i say that tongue in cheek, see warning below) plagued by the computer monitoring error bug from UR2 a hotfix is now available for you.  This bug was introduced by Update Rollup 2 for Windows Home Server 2011, SBS Server 2011, Storage Server 2008 R2, and Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials.  A good collection of the links to each individual hotfix can be found on the “SBS Diva’s” blog.

Here is the direct link to WHS 2011’s hotfix.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2686857  One little warning however, you can’t directly download the hotfix for WHS 2011.  There will be a link at the top of this KB article to request the fix via e-mail.  Why?  One can only speculate but we will be discussing it on the next Home Server Show Podcast.  Live every Wednesday evening at 8:30 central.  Join us.

Check back into the forums and let us know how the hotfix is doing for you.

    Quite a few Microsoft updates are only available via an email request. No big deal to request one this way, just a PITA. My only guess as to why they do this is to track usage.

    Right now it's "hotfix" stage. Ultimately it will be on MU/rolled into the next update rollup.
