But Seriously, check the run times of your Updates…

Just got to work this morning with several computers that failed our Windows Updates deployment with the exact same issue as the one I most recently blogged about, the “updates handler job was cancelled.”

I checked which ones were failing, and it was the “Cumulative Update” for whichever version of Windows was on the computer.

The run-times for the Cumulative Updates had been reduced to an even shorter time of FIVE MINUTES?! We absolutely have computers that will not be able to complete this in a five minute time frame. I switched it back to 60 minutes.

Why did these move to 5 minutes? No idea. Maybe Microsoft knows…
