Microsoft Security Bulletin MS12-050
In my testing of these patches (have installed on two seperate test farms) I have noticed that KB2596663, KB2596942, and KB2596911 all run PSCONFIG during the install.
So far I have not noticed any issues caused by this, however is this suppose to happen, or is there a way to prevent PSCONFIG from running automatically?
Will this cause any issues in a multi-server farm if psconfig runs and completes on a server before the binaries are installed on other servers in the farm?
In all the updates I have applied previously this has never happened, and I have always run PSCONFIG on the servers in the farm after the binary updates have been completed as per technet article
Yes, there was an issue with these updates running PSConfig without user interaction. In the latest update MS12-066 this issue has fixed. PSConfig will no longer run in the background without user interaction.
