KB4015553 on Windows Server 2012 R2 with SQL 2008 R2 creates System Kernel Process Handle/Thread Leak
KB4015553 on a Windows Server 21012 R2 with SQL 2008 R2 creates a System Kernel Process Handle/Thread Leak. It is easy to see in the Task Manager after adding the Handle/Thread count columns. The counts increase nearly 1 per second until the OS and system is unresponsive and collapses.
Another indicator is in the event logs, 4231 events appear: Description:
A request to allocate an ephemeral port number from the global TCP
port space has failed due to all such ports being in use.
But the ephemeral port alert is not the root cause.
I had this problem on a server that was running as a DC and a server running file/print services as per the link below where someone else had the same problem
I also had the symptom listed here with the Ephemeral ports.
Caused quite a few problems for our nearly 400 users. - In the process of removing the update now from all of the servers in this environment.
I have same problem, cannot uninstall and get same error.
I really also suspect my issues to be about this patch. A reboot of the server each 7-8 hours is only fix for me right now :(
Really need help how to uninstall it...
