    Be aware, there have been two releases of ADS 2020 update 1.1.
    The first release had an installationbug, but some people managed to work arround the issue, but ended up with a lower buildnumer.
    Now patch 1 for ADS 2020 update 1.1 doesn’t install because of the lower buildnumber.

    IF you installed the first version of ADS 2020 update 1.1 and used the repair workaround to get it working, you won’t be able to install patch 1.
    To get around this isssue download ADS update 1.1 again as it has an updated buildnumber. Go through your normal update procedure. Afterwards patch 1 will install fine.

      Thanks Rene, I hit this exact issue, and the patch was refusing to install. Following your advice, it’s all sorted now 🙂

      • Andre Wanlin

        Rene, any chance you could post the build numbers you are referencing? Might help us determine if we fall under your suggestion or not. We did not have issues installing Azure DevOps Server 2020 Update 1.1

        I’m running the RTW build as well and hit this bug. Is there any possibility of MS providing an updated version of the patch that handles this versioning issue instead of having to perform a repair install of the application to get to the point where the patch can be installed?

        If you could post the system requirements for Azure DevOps Server 2022, that would be very helpful. I’m interested in learning the minimum versions of Windows Server OS and SQL Server.

          • Lindeman, Andy

            Thanks! So to be clear, you’re not anticipating any changes for 2022 from the minimum requirements of Azure DevOps Server 2020, correct?

            Just want to be certain- if I need to upgrade Windows Server OS or SQL Server versions, I need to notify my IT folks- and get this on their list of future work. Otherwise I can perform the upgrade myself… 🙂

    Hi Gloridel

    Can you share a little more information on “Resolve issue with inconsistent Test Results data” so that we can determine if it deems us to install this patch?

    Thank you in advance.
