Although not referred to as an update rollup, this latest hotfix is a bundle of fixes.  As before, don’t rush out to deploy it unless it looks like it’s going to fix a problem you are having.  Otherwise, wait a few weeks, test if you can, check the news, and then deploy it to prevent those problems.

This bundle is an update that improves cloud service provider resiliency in Windows Server 2012.  That title/description sounds like someone didn’t know how to describe it and fell back to marketing jargon.  Please don’t let the title confuse you – this bundle contains important fixes for all.  This new KB2870270 replaces the recent KB2848344 (Update that improves cloud service provider resiliency in Windows Server 2012).

The bundle contains:

  • KB2796995: Offloaded Data Transfers fail on a computer that is running Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012
  • KB2799728: Virtual machine enters a paused state or a CSV volume goes offline when you try to create a backup of the virtual machine on a Windows Server 2012-based failover cluster
  • KB2801054: VSS_E_SNAPSHOT_SET_IN_PROGRESS error when you try to back up a virtual machine in Windows Server 2012
  • KB2813630: Virtual machine enters a paused state or a CSV volume goes offline when you try to create a backup of the virtual machine on a Windows Server 2012-based failover cluster
  • KB2848727: "Move-SmbWitnessClient" PowerShell command fails in Windows Server 2012
