Summary


This article lists the hotfixes that are currently available for users who have installed the File Services technologies on a Windows Server 2012-based computer or a Windows Server 2012 R2-based computer. File Services provides technologies that help you manage storage, enable file replication, manage shared folders, provide fast file searching, and enable access for UNIX client computers. This article also lists the hotfixes that are currently available for users who use File Services on Windows 8-based computers or Windows 8.1-based computers.

INTRODUCTION


This article contains lists of Microsoft Knowledge Base articles that describe the currently available fixes. The article is divided into two sections. The first section applies to Windows Server 2012 and to Windows 8, and the second section applies to Windows Server 2012 R2 and to Windows 8.1. Each section is divided into subsections for different component drivers: SRV, MRXSMB, and RDBSS. In general, the SRV drivers should be updated on the server or client computer that is hosting the data. The MRXSMB and RDBSS drivers should be updated on the server or client computer that is initiating access to the data. If you are unsure about which component should be updated on which computer, you can update all three component drivers on both the computer that is hosting the data and the computer that is accessing the data.

A servicing approach of installing the monthly rollups provides customers with a consistent model for staying current and secure. You may substitute a more recent monthly rollup in place of an older monthly rollup. The remainder of the updates in this list are still needed as some components in those updates released prior to October 2016 and are not included in a more recent monthly rollup.  For more information on the servicing approach, see https://aka.ms/rollupblog.

The Server Message Block (SMB) model consists of two entities: the client and the server.

On the client, applications perform system calls by requesting operations on remote files. These requests are handled by the redirector subsystem (rdbss.sys) and by the SMB mini-redirector (mrxsmb.sys), both of which translate the requests into SMB protocol sessions and requests over TCP/IP. Starting with Windows Vista, the SMB 2.0 protocol is supported. The mrxsmb10.sys driver handles legacy SMB traffic, and the mrxsmb20.sys driver handles SMB 2.0 and SMB 3.0 traffic.

On the server, SMB connections are accepted, and SMB requests are processed as local file system operations through NTFS and the local storage stack. The srv.sys driver handles legacy SMB traffic, and the srv2.sys driver handles SMB 2.0 traffic. The srvnet.sys component implements the interface between networking and the file server for both SMB protocols. File system metadata and content can be cached in memory via the system cache in the kernel (ntoskrnl.exe).

Figure 1 provides an overview of the different layers through which a user request on a client computer must go to perform file operations over the network on a remote SMB file server by using SMB 2.0.

Services for Network File System (NFS) in a Windows Server 2012 environment

Services for NFS includes the following components:
  • Server for NFS

    This component corresponds to the server-side implementation of the NFS file-sharing protocol. Server for NFS enables a computer that is running Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2 to act as a file server for UNIX-based client computers.
  • Client for NFS

    This component corresponds to the client-side implementation of the NFS file-sharing protocol. Client for NFS enables a Windows-based computer that is running Windows Server 2012 (or Windows 8) to access files that are stored on a UNIX-based NFS server.
Windows Server 2012 includes both the Server for NFS and Client for NFS components. However, Windows 8 includes only Client for NFS.

For more information and a step-by-step guide for the services for NFS, go to the following Microsoft website:
 Microsoft Services for NFS provides a file-sharing solution for enterprises that have a mixed Windows and UNIX environment. This communication model consists of client computers and a server. Applications on the client request files that are located on the server through the redirector (Rdbss.sys) and NFS mini-redirector (Nfsrdr.sys). The mini-redirector uses the NFS protocol to send its request through TCP/IP. The server receives multiple requests from the clients through TCP/IP and routes the requests to the local file system (Ntfs.sys), which accesses the storage stack.

Figure 2 shows the communication model for NFS.
