  • Master Patch List for August 8, 2023

    I’ve updated the Master Patch list for the August updates.  Remember to always review the known issues we are tracking on the Master Patch List page. I will keep the latest info there.

    So far trending issues are:

    8/8/2023:  Still in the process of testing and evaluating updates but be aware that I am seeing failures to install the Exchange server updates for Microsoft’s mail server see this post. Microsoft has pulled the update at this time.

    Consumer tip:  If you are on Windows 11 and have any sort of third party menu or file explorer program, ensure that it’s up to date. If the start menu won’t launch be prepared to remove it. While I haven’t seen issues in my testing, it’s still too soon to be installing updates.

    Business tip: On August 8, 2023, Windows Updates for Server 2022 will add options for administrators to audit client machines that cannot utilize LDAP channel binding tokens via events on Active Directory domain controllers.  (more info in the master patch list)

    I am recommending at this time that you install Apple updates, I’m not recommending Windows updates at this time. I’ll have more details in the newsletter on Monday.

    • Windows 11 22H2: Recommended
    • Windows 11 21H2: If you have a Windows 11 PC and are a gamer, recommended
    • Windows 10 22H2: Recommended
    • Apple Ventura – Recommended for newer hardware – as always check with the applications you rely on if they recommend this release.
