You may see installation failures of Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (KB951847) on the 3 EBS Standard Edition Servers.  Clients and other servers’re not affected. To correct, run following steps on all 3 EBS Servers: 1.  Log on to server and copy script to your server. 2. Either copy and paste contents in to a new file created locally on server or else unblock content. To unblock content, right-click on the file in Explorer, choose Properties, and choose Unblock on General tab. Click apply and OK. 3. Open an elevated command prompt and execute script. Note: You may see a few “Property ___ does not exist” errors. These’re innocuous and can be ignored. 4. If prompted, copy WFServicesReg.exe from another system to C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5 and C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v3.5 folders. The versions of WFServicesReg.exe in each folder’re different. The current version’s 3.4.5940.0 for both files. The \Framework folder version is 178 KB, while the \Framework64 version is 267 KB. 5. Run hotfix.
