Windows update?

  Asked By: Marla    Date: Jan 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 879

Has anyone tried doing a windows update on a SharePoint box?
I did and it seems to have messed up SharePoint totally.
For instance even the Sharepoint service doesn't start.

Is there any KB article on this?

If we set up a new sharepoint  box, then we should run the following command
to enable the ServerHTTP component to use NTLM authentication:

proxycfg -d -p pretendproxy:80 "<local>"

What is odd though, is I don't think we've done that on our current box, yet
it seems to work fine. But after reading the documentation, it looks like
the webparts would only use basic authentication if this setting wasn't done
