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…
