Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2008 Update Rollup 4 is now available on Microsoft Update and WSUS. This rollup package addresses the following issues in Windows Small Business Server 2008.

  • Issue 1
    You may be unable to rename and to join a computer that is running Windows 7 to your Windows SBS 2008-based domain by using the Windows SBS client Join wizard.
  • Issue 2
    If the PublicFQDNPrefix registry entry is not set on the computer, you may be unable to install an update rollup for Windows SBS 2008, and you may receive the 6BA error code.
  • Issue 3
    The following four new alerts are added to the Event Log errors list:
    • The server shut down unexpectedly
    • The server restarted
    • An error prevented Backup from starting
    • An error prevented Backup from completing successfully
  • Issue 4
    The delivery of the network report may be delayed because it takes a long time for the server to query the status of the offline clients.
  • Issue 5
    Internet Address Management Wizard may stop responding after you delete a Windows SharePoint Services site on a computer that is running Windows SBS 2008.

NOTE: This update also includes all updates from Update Rollup 1, Update Rollup 2, Update Rollup 3 and supersedes those previous update rollups.
