Dashboard issues and Essentials

On June 5, 2018, in Essentials, by susan

Just a fyi tracking some side effects with updates and alerts on the dashboard.  As Mark posted in the partner forum here https://partnersupport.microsoft.com/en-us/par_servplat/forum/par_winserv/cannot-ignore-dashboard-alert-on-essentials-2012/8869377d-1fed-4e19-b300-1d9bf38501d7 and posted here:  https://www.mcbsys.com/blog/2018/02/essentials-2012-r2-dashboard-fails-with-net-4-6-and-4-7/  Essentials 2012 R2 fails with .NET 4.6 and 4.7

Peter found that Essentials 2016 doesn’t like the recent Windows server 2016 update:

May 8, 2018—KB4103723 (OS Build 14393.2248)

Applies to: Windows 10 Version 1607 Windows Server 2016

Once he removed that, the issues with clicking to ignore alerts went away.  Obviously keeping updates off machines is not a long term fix, so this is still under investigation.

    Just found this post – These Essentials 2016 Dashboard crashes or failures to load at all have confounded me. Cannot fully setup Anywhere Access thru the Setup in Dashboard to completion.
    Dashboard crashes in kernelbase.dll for both 2016 *and* 2012? hmmmm.
    Hope we can all get to bottom of it.
