New hotfixes you want to install if you use SCCM

In the last weeks Microsoft released a couple of good and important hotfixes for all of you that uses  SCCM 2007 R2.

  1. If you installed the 2212600 update that lets you import the same driver multiple times and you use driver categories you might have noticed that the category information is overwritten. To fix this Microsoft released the below update:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2513499
  2. If you use SCUP and have a SCCM multi site infrastructure, and you try to publish updates with "metadata only" they will not be replicated to the WSUS hierarchy servers.

    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=2530709
    Note that the above updates are identical and you should only install one of them (not sure why the WSUS team released two)
  3. If you have a Task sequence that installs many updates (more then 80) you might have noticed that the TS might stop responding. To fix this Microsoft released the below update:

  4. If you have a Task sequence that installs a lot of Software (more then 100) you might have noticed that the TS might stop responding. To fix this Microsoft released the below update:
