    • Notes
      • "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file.  You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."  This is the message I experienced on two SharePoint 2013 farm servers after installing the above updates, rebooting, and then trying to perform routine administrative functions requiring administrator-level permissions.  The solution to this problem is relatively simple: run System File Checker at startup - you have to run it at startup since you can't open an elevated shell.  And, you'll need the local admin password to the machine, since you'll be launching it from the command prompt.  NOTE: this issue will prevent significant SharePoint functionality from operating if this issue manifests on the SQL server backend.  The reason being the administrator-level permissions are needed to execute various farm stored procedures.

      • 09/10/2015: We found that one or more of the August 2015 updates for Windows Server 2012 appears to have corrupted some of the Windows Server system files when installed by Microsoft System Center.  The affect was inconsistent and did not affect all servers.  The short term solution, when this was discovered while testing on development servers, was to use Windows Update to install updates. The corruption manifested as not being able to run any tool requiring Administrator privilege.  For example, an administrator could log into the server without issue.  However, trying to run any of the Administrator Tools would return the usual denied error.
