    KB3161608 (KB3161639) breaks vSphere Client inventory search

    aig Novice

      vSphere Client and vCenter Server 5.1.

      On Windows 7 SP1, after installing Microsoft KB3161608 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3161608 (this is a rollup the actual kb is KB3161639 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3161639) there is a problem searching with the vSphere Client:

      - The error message is:

      Login to the query service failed.

      An SSL error occurred, (The Request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.)

      - Also, Event ID 36888 (Schannel) is raised:

      The following fatal alert was generated: 40. The internal error state is 808.

      - Browsing with IE to https://vcenter_server:10443 returns:

      This page can’t be displayed

           while in Chrome it returns a valid response


      Uninstalling KB3161608 fixes all of the above.


      Has anyone else noticed it? any workaround?
