Finally the awaited and talked about Exchange Server 2007 Update Rollup 4 has been released and would be available on Windows Download site only, and not on MS Update servers. 😉 …. All changes included inÂ RU4 can be found in article – KB952580 !
A bit of history…..As usual Microsoft somehow found ways to get into news for wrong reasons. On 9th Sep customers who had Automatic Updates enabled on OS, got the pre-release version and then were in for a rude shock that it was all wrong. Without getting into how troubled the customers were, it is heartening to see that Microsoft accepted the mistake publically (unlike earlier instances) and it was mentioned on the MS Exchange team blog along with solution.
Another case for never enabling Automatic Updates and always testing, validating and approving updates before applying into production !!!!!
