Update Essentials 2012 R2 Dashboard to be compatible with current .NET releases
If any .NET version after 4.5.2 is installed, some dashboard functionality fails (can't remove computer, can't ignore alert) and the dashboard crashes randomly. Removing and blocking .NET 4.6.1, 4.7, and 4.7.1 works around the issue, but that means the server is limited to the 4-year-old .NET 4.5.2. This article has more details:
Have to add the following detail: CPU with 100% came up only while trying to delete an alert message. After killing the dashboard.exe it came down again.
I have the same problem on Server 2012 Essentials R2 of two different customers. Using the Dashboard than came up with another problem, while using the Dashboard CPU went up to 100%, allways. Only killing the dashboard.exe in task manager brought it down again. Using the Dashboard during working hours prevented network users for example accessing the domain controller / file server.
Anything new about an update fixing that problem ??
I run an MSP and have this same problem on at least four different servers, completely unique setups and different businesses. Very frustrating.
Funny to see this posted last week...I just got bit by this same bug tonight. I have a WSE 2012 R2 that I'm rebuilding for someone and have been wondering why a bunch of things were acting odd and crashing the dashboard.
Will there be a solution that doesn't involve downgrading .NET? A program being hosted on my box needs 4.6.0 or newer, so using 4.5.2 is not an option.
