Note: An update with all the KBs is here

After applying this months security patches we get the below errors in the BizTalk Admin Console when either refreshing the Group Overview or trying to view any of the Platform Settings on both BizTalk 2010 (CU9) and BizTalk 2013 R2 (CU6).

1) Failed to load Group [dbhost:BizTalkMgmtDb] data providers. (Microsoft.BizTalk.Administration.SnapIn)

Additional Information:

Failed to load Group [dbhost:BizTalkMgmtDb] data providers.
(Microsoft.BizTalk.Administration.SnapIn)
An internal failure occurred for unknown reasons. (WinMgmt)

2) Failed to create a BizTalkdDBVersion COM component installed with a BizTalk server.

Class not registered (WinMgmt)

3) An internal failure occurred for unknown reasons. (WinMgmt)

BizTalkConsoleErrors

We tried restarting Windows Management Instrumentation and also rebooting the server, no change.

To resolve it we uninstalled all the KBs via Add Remove Programs (or Programs and Features) –> View “Installed Updates” and it resolved the issue.  We then uninstalled just one KB on another environment and identified the one causing the failure. Looks the culprits are

BizTalk 2013 R2

KB4338600  Description of the Security Only update for .NET Framework 4.5.2 for Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2

and

BizTalk 2010

KB4338602 Description of the Security Only update for .NET Framework 4.5.2 for Windows 7 SP1, Server 2008 R2 SP1 and Server 2008

And then I would be wary off the below as well if you have BizTalk on Windows Server 2012

KB4338601 Description of the Security Only update for .NET Framework 4.5.2 for Windows Server 2012

The below KB didn’t cause an issue on the BizTalk 2013 R2 environment (as BizTalk uses .Net 4.5.x)
KB4338605 Description of the Security Only update for .NET Framework 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, and 4.7.1 for Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2

Also reported on this thread An internal failure occurred for unknown reasons (WinMgmt)  and on Twitter it also impacted BizTalk 2016 with KB4338419  Description of the Security and Quality Rollup updates for .NET Framework 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, and 4.7.1 for Windows 8.1, RT 8.1, and Server 2012 R2
