Update Night

March 20, 2008

I used my wife’s absence to perform a few updates in anticipation of Vista SP1, which is now available for download:

  • Updated Drobo firmware to 1.1.1, which necessitated having to re share all the network shares on the Drobo and restart Windows Server 2003. Other than that the update went fine, but I have to believe Data Robotics can improve this process.
  • Updated WSUS 3.0 with Service Pack 1. Took about 35 minutes to install, but otherwise the installation seemed to go ok.
  • Updated the firmware on my CableCard OCUR tuners to version 1.16 in hopes of avoiding losing a tuner every few weeks and having to reboot to get it back. What a strange upgrade process: the upgrade must be installed while the tuner has been on more the two minutes and less than 10 minutes. Fortunately this went fine and I did not have to reconfigure the Vista Media Center Digital Cable settings.

Of course all this just happened this evening, so there may yet be issues I am unaware of.
