OCS 2007 R2 dies after OS patching RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our OCS 2007 R2 server (W2K8 + SQL 2008) has been working OK for a few months. A few days ago it was patched via Windows Update and as the result all the OCS services (except the application host) failed to start.

    I discovered that many people also experienced this issue due to MS Crypto API security update KB974571. I then uninstalled KB974571.  However, OCS services never came back up. I then applied almost all OCS October 2009 patches.  Also applied ocsasnfix.exe. No Joy. Any idea how to fix this?

  • Latest update. The problem has now been resolved.
    For whatever reason, the certificate got clobbered. I recreated and re-assigned the certificate and all services came back up OK.
