October patch for Team Foundation Server

Gloridel Morales

This month, we are releasing fixes that impact Team Foundation Server 2018. The following has been fixed with this patch:

  • Add the ability to select the set of SSH key exchange algorithms. With this, you can disable SHA1 to use the industry-standard SHA2.

TFS 2018 Update 3.2 Patch 13

If you have TFS 2018 Update 2 or Update 3, you should first update to TFS 2018 Update 3.2. Once on Update 3.2, install TFS 2018 Update 3.2 Patch 13.

Verifying Installation

  • Option 1: Run tfs2018.3.2patch13.exe CheckInstall from a command prompt. tfs2018.3.2patch13.exe is the file that is downloaded from the link above. The output of the command will either say that the patch has been installed, or that is not installed.

  • Option 2: Check the version of the following file: [TFS_INSTALL_DIR]\Application Tier\Web Services\bin\Microsoft.TeamFoundation.WorkItemTracking.Web.dll. By default, TFS 2018 is installed to c:\Program Files\Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2018. After installing TFS 2018 Update 3.2 Patch 13, the version will be 16.131.30605.1.

    When deploying this patch to a proxy server I get following error:

    Error patching files: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path ‘C:\Program Files\Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2018\Version Control Proxy\Web Services\bin\Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Framework.Server.dll’ is denied

    I know that this specific patch is not needed by the proxy server, but we normally apply each patch also on our proxy server to be on the safe side 😉

      Meanwhile I got a tip (not from M$)
      The problem is the service “GVFS Cache Maintenance Service” which is not stopped be the setup routines
