  • Need help in Installing the .NET framework in the proper order for Exchange Server 07

    To All Experts,

    Can someone guide me in installing the .NET framework for Exchange Server 2007 in my Windows Server 2003 x64 ?

    I haven't applied this update yet:

    Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update for .NET versions 2.0 through 3.5 (KB951847) x64
    Date last published: 10/16/2009
    Download size: 131.7 MB

    too scared of things went wrong again ;-|
    because since I regularly use Windows update it broke my Autodiscover and POP3.exe and IMAP4.exe also cannot be executed (failed to start).

    but when I'm about to to download that 131 MB file above I couldn't find it, but instead MS Download website lead me to this:

    Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update for Windows XP x64, and Windows Server 2003 x64 (KB959209)
    URL:
    Code:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=A4F52459-DFE5-4BC3-8F7F-AA688879B1DC&displaylang=en#filelist
    in which I shall install smaller file for the update:

    1. Install the update for the .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 - NDP20SP2-KB958481-x64.exe
    2. Install the update for the .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 2 - NDP30SP2-KB958483-x64.exe
    3. Install the update for the .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 - NDP35SP1-KB958484-x64.exe

    please let me know which one is the correct procedure to install it without breaking things apart in my production environment.

    Thanks,

    AWT

    I'm confused why Windows Update website (Manual link Update) shows i need to install:
    Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update for .NET versions 2.0 through 3.5 (KB951847) x64

    rather than jumping directly into: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update for Windows XP x64, and Windows Server 2003 x64 (KB959209)

    so far I don't bother to apply the .NET Fx update until I realized that my current error can be fixed by installing:

      I just install whatever Microsoft Update offers. Never had a problem that way. No idea how many servers I have done that on - dozens.

        I wish it could be that simple, whenever there is automated Windows Update my current exchange server restart itself at 3 AM and then never be able to get ping reply.

        so in this case i shall install according to the sequence number i suppose ?

          First - I never allow servers to have automatic updates installed automatically and reboot. I always, without exception do them manually and then reboot.
          If you are seeing issues with the network after rebooting that will not have anything to do with net framework, you have another problem somewhere.

          I have installed the net framework updates from Microsoft Update 100s of times - six times this week alone, and not seen a single issue with them.
          If you are seeing a problem with your server then it must be something specific to that server which will be impossible to answer on a forum. As far as I am aware there is no guidance on the "correct" order to install the updates, because Microsoft Update deals with it all.

            Thanks for the explanation mate,

            however AFAIK that my current Exchange Server 2007 is now running on the broken .NET Fx 3.5 SP1 and uses mainly the 2.0 SP2. If this update crashed the binary / failed to execute the service then I'll have to restore from the backup iamge again and risking losing my email during the upgrade process and probably the AD replciation during that time ?

              The only thing I can suggest is to stop and disable Exchange, remove all of the net framework, plus use the framework cleanup tools, then install from scratch. Although if you suspect that there are still problems, a call to Microsoft Support is going to be the best option to guide you through the repair.

                Thanks Simon,

                I'll try to stop all MS Exchange related services using the following script first:
                Code:
                echo %DATE% %TIME% Shutting Down Services >>c:\scripts\shutdown.txt
                net stop msexchangeadtopology /y
                echo %DATE% %TIME% Shut Down MSExchangeADTopology >>c:\scripts\shutdown.txt
                net stop msftesql-exchange /y
                echo %DATE% %TIME% Shut Down MSFteSQL-Exchange >>c:\scripts\shutdown.txt
                net stop msexchangeis /y
                echo %DATE% %TIME% Shut Down MSExchangeIS >>c:\scripts\shutdown.txt
                net stop msexchangesa /y
                echo %DATE% %TIME% Shut down MSExchangeSA >>c:\scripts\shutdown.txt
                net stop iisadmin /y
                echo %DATE% %TIME% Shut down IISAdmin >>c:\scripts\shutdown.txt
                echo %DATE% %TIME% Shut down services script complete >>c:\scripts\shutdown.txt
                Source: and then try to make the update from Windows Update as I cannot get this update individually:

                Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update for .NET versions 2.0 through 3.5 (KB951847) x64
                Date last published: 10/16/2009
                Download size: 131.7 MB

                and if something bad happens then i shall just recover the Exchange Server from backup image as the email is still held in the ISP cache (since no Ex. server received the email yet).
