A couple of my systems have installed KB2506143.Kace is not managing our windows updates so the system did not install it. The problem that has now been caused by this is that our SCCM agents can no longer connect to the server so we are looking to the KACE system for a solution. Has anyone else run into this or know of a good way to remove this update?

Thank you

I've never tried this with a patch, but it should still work. Go to the inventory for a machine that has the patch installed. Under software expand "Installed Patches via Inventory". Click on the link for the named patch.

This will open the software inventory for the patch. Under choose file upload the patch.msu.

Create a new MI Distribution>Managed Installs>Choose Action>Add New Item. Find you patch from the dropdown. Enter wusa Windows6.1-KB2506143-x64.msu /uninstall for the command line. Also check mark "uninstall using Full Command Line".

Everything else is pretty self explanatory. Again I have not tested this on patches before, but it does work on software. Let me know.

  • Actually you might not need to check mark "uninstall using command line". It should just uninstall using that command line without it checked. Either way let me know. I'll be curious to see the results.

You could also do a rollback if the patch supports it. Even though the KBOX didn't push it out we can detect it and rollback.

  • You can run the above command line through batch script

if you look at a machine with the kb installed you can do a regedit and under HKLM\softwawre\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\... a keyset with that in the default, use the uninstallstring as a script and verify if key exists.

  • if you need to you can even create a custom software inventory in kace to see what machines have it installed on them by using a if keyexist in the custom software field
