Version 1

    LANDESK Security and Patch News


    ·          (June 3, 2016) Microsoft has released KB3041832 which addresses an issue in which the CPU usage is high in Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2.

    Consider the following scenario that takes Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 as an example:
    The Mailbox server role is enabled in Exchange Server 2013.
    Exchange mailboxes use extended MAPI to communicate with the Exchange Server.
    The extended MAPI uses Microsoft RPC over HTTP (remote procedure call over HTTP) protocol.
    Many clients (such as mobile devices) are dropping connections to the Exchange Server.

    In this scenario, the CPU usage on the Exchange server may reach 100 percent.

    This issue occurs because Internet Information Services (IIS) changed the method of closing the HTTP connection in Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2.
