  • Route RPKI validation April 1st, 2022
    RPKI is a security framework by which network owners can validate and secure the critical route updates or Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) announcements between public Internet networks. BGP is essentially the central nervous system of the Internet and one of its fundamental building blocks. The main function of BGP is to facilitate efficient routing between Autonomous Systems (AS), by building and maintaining the Internet routing table. The Internet routing table is effectively the navigation system of the Internet and without it, traffic would be unable to flow between its constituent networks. Unfortunately, routing equipment alone cannot distinguish between legitimate and malicious routing announcements,...
  • RIPE – Atlas Anchor February 17th, 2022
    We have become an even more integral part of the RIPE Atlas project by hosting an anchor, a device that allows for latency analysis of traffic between autonomous systems.https://atlas.ripe.net/probes/7073/RIPE Atlas anchors play an integral role in the RIPE Atlas network by acting both as enhanced RIPE Atlas probes with more measurement capacity, as well as regional measurement targets within the greater RIPE Atlas network. Anchors are able to perform many more measurements than a regular RIPE Atlas probe, and the large amount of data they collect is made available to everyone. In addition, anchors act as powerful targets that can...
  • MANRS June 20th, 2020
    GOLINE firmly believes in initiatives to protect networks, improve security and resilience of the global routing system. Therefore we decided to support the MANRS project and join as participants.Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is a global initiative, supported by the Internet Society, that provides crucial fixes to reduce the most common routing threats.

Microsoft .NET 4.7 update problem on Windows 2012 R2

Miro Manglaviti Windows 22 June 2022

The Fix
To resolve this, we are going to download the updates MSU files from the Microsoft Update Catalog, and fully uninstall, then re-install the problematic updates.
Please Note: Always make sure you have a full backup before making modifications to your servers.
Please follow the instructions below:
Create a folder called “updatefix” on the root of your C drive on the server
Navigate to the Windows Update catalog at: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/
Search for KB4054566 and download the file for “Windows Server 2012 R2”, save it to the folder you created above called “updatefix” on the root of your C Drive. There should be one file in the download.
Search for KB4340558 and download the files for “Windows Server 2012 R2”, save it to the folder you created above called “updatefix” on the root of your C Drive. There should be a total of 3 files in this download.
Create a folder in the “updatefix” folder called “expanded”.
Open an elevated command prompt, and run the following commands to extract the updates CAB files:
expand -f:* "C:updatefixwindows8.1-kb4338415-x64_cc34d1c48e0cc2a92f3c340ad9a0c927eb3ec2d1.msu" C:updatefixexpanded
expand -f:* "C:updatefixwindows8.1-kb4338419-x64_4d257a38e38b6b8e3d9e4763dba2ae7506b2754d.msu" C:updatefixexpanded
expand -f:* "C:updatefixwindows8.1-kb4338424-x64_e3d28f90c6b9dd7e80217b6fb0869e7b6dfe6738.msu" C:updatefixexpanded
expand -f:* "C:updatefixwindows8.1-kb4054566-x64_e780e6efac612bd0fcaf9cccfe15d6d05c9cc419.msu" C:updatefixexpanded
Now let’s uninstall the problematic updates. Some of these commands may fail depending on which updates you have successfully installed. Run the following commands individually to remove the updates:
dism /online /remove-package /packagepath:C:updatefixexpandedWindows8.1-KB4338424-x64.cab
dism /online /remove-package /packagepath:C:updatefixexpandedWindows8.1-KB4338419-x64.cab
dism /online /remove-package /packagepath:C:updatefixexpandedWindows8.1-KB4338415-x64.cab
dism /online /remove-package /packagepath:C:updatefixexpandedWindows8.1-KB4054566-x64.cab
Now let’s cleanly install the updates. All of these commands should be successful when running. Run the following commands individually to install the updates:
dism /online /add-package /packagepath:C:updatefixexpandedWindows8.1-KB4054566-x64.cab
dism /online /add-package /packagepath:C:updatefixexpandedWindows8.1-KB4338415-x64.cab
dism /online /add-package /packagepath:C:updatefixexpandedWindows8.1-KB4338419-x64.cab
dism /online /add-package /packagepath:C:updatefixexpandedWindows8.1-KB4338424-x64.cab
You have now fixed the issue and all updates should now be cleanly installing via Windows Updates!
