I applied the Sept CU on all my machines, I have about 12 machines. It worked on all of them but failed on two. All the machines have the same setting and are all identical.

So after I apply the CU, the configuration wizard keeps failing. What could be the issue?

  • Check the errors in the logs of Configuration Wizard. If they don't lead you forward, you can edit the lines about the encountered error to your question. – moe Oct 31 '16 at 13:52
  • what failing means on 2 servers? did you reboot that server then retry to on those failing servers? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Oct 31 '16 at 13:55
  • @WaqasSarwarMCSE Yes I reboot the servers and tried it again. Still no luck. – dkorra Oct 31 '16 at 14:51
  • what error u are getting? are those server part of farm with other servers – Waqas Sarwar MVP Oct 31 '16 at 16:25
  • Nop they are not. But stopping the search services and running the wizard again was a fix. Thanks @WaqasSarwarMCSE – dkorra Oct 31 '16 at 18:36

What are the roles of the two failing servers? If search isn't stopped before the Wizard is run, it can fail. Typically running it a second time after failure will work in that case.

  • The two servers are Dev servers just like the others. I was planning to go to staging and production after I was done with this two. – dkorra Oct 31 '16 at 14:53
  • I meant what server roles? WFE, Index, Query, App, etc. Also, put the errors from the psconfig log in your post so we can help you. – James Grizzle Oct 31 '16 at 18:14
  • No specific roles, developers use them for anything they want. Usually Query, and app. – dkorra Oct 31 '16 at 18:35
  • But I stopped the search services and run the wizard again, that way it was successful. Thanks so much for the help. – dkorra Oct 31 '16 at 18:36
