  1. Hi Anoop,

    I have installed latest hotfix kb4490575 on my SCCM 1810 branch, the installation shows successful but when i checked in “Show Status” it shows post check installation still in progress.

    I have checked all respective log files but nothing unusual found. Please let me know what we can do to fix this “Post Installation in progress issue”

    1) Hotfix shows installed successfully on both the level
    A) Monitoring – update and servicing status – select update package name “…1810 hotfix kb4490575” – show status (update pack installation status)
    B) Administration – update and servicing – Installed (status)
    2) Done multiple reboot and also note the previous hotfix kb4490434 installed successfully

      1. Hi Anoop,

        Thanks for your reply 🙂

        I did’t get any option for SCCM console update after hotfix update completion.
        The SCCM console currently showing version is 5.1810.1075.2000 is this correct ?

        (Usually when we complete hotfix update and close console and next time when we open, it should ask console update but in my case of hotfix kb4490575 and kb4490434 it did not ask me to update console)

        I have raise this question because the problem is my SCCM clients not updating, after analysis found that the shared folder of client package NTFS permissions are not correct, it shows in accessible.

        Even if i change NTFS permission for client package folder and keep same parent folder permission it again getting changed to in accessible permission state.
