Release Notes for Cisco BBSM 5.1 Microsoft IIS Cumulative Patch
These release notes describe the Cisco Building Broadband Service Manager (BBSM) 5.1 Microsoft IIS cumulative patch (MSIISRollup.exe), which is also known as Patch 5207. The purpose of this patch is to install the latest Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) security patches.
Note The most current Cisco documentation for released products is available on Cisco Connection Online (CCO) at http://www.cisco.com. Online documents may contain updates and modifications made after the paper documents are printed.
MSIISRollup.exe can be installed on BBSM 5.2, build 1.0, and any build of BBSM 5.1 with any level of patches applied.
MSIISRollup.exe corrects the following vulnerabilities on the BBSM server running IIS 5.0:
•Out of process privilege elevation
•WebDAV denial of service
•Script source access
•Cross-site scripting in IIS administrative pages
•Reduced server availability
This patch eliminates other vulnerabilities as well. For additional information, refer to Microsoft Security Bulletin MS02-062 at this website: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/bulletin/MS02-062.asp
Note MSIISRollup.exe is cumulative and supersedes the patches that are provided in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS02-028 and MS02-018.
BBSM service packs and patches can be installed locally onto any BBSM server. They can also be installed onto multiple BBSM servers that have Internet access from another computer in a remote location.
Caution This patch disconnects all client sessions. Do not install this patch on any BBSM server that does not have Microsoft Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Microsoft Service Pack 3 (SP3) installed.
Since this is a IIS patch, Internet service will be interrupted during the installation, and you will not see a success message upon completion. You will see different messages depending on whether you are connecting to the BBSM server through the internal or external network. When you connect from the internal network, you will see this message or something similar indicating that a communication error has occurred: HTTP proxy reports: (The specified network name is no longer available.)
When you connect from the external network, you will see this message: The page cannot be displayed... The operating system and browser version that you are using can also affect the type of message that you see. In either case, the connection to the server is lost; however, the patch installation continues, and the server restarts upon completion.
Note For remote installations, you must wait approximately 5 to 10 minutes or however long it normally takes for the server to restart and for the atdial service on your server to initialize. If you are using the Windows 2000 (SP2 or later) or Windows XP operating systems to install the patch remotely, the ASP files load very slowly. To prevent this, uncheck the Client for Microsoft Networks check box in the NIC Properties window.
Use this procedure to install MSIISRollup.exe onto your BBSM server:
Step 1 Using your Internet Explorer (IE) web browser, go to the Cisco BBSM 5.1 Software Download website at http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/bbsm51.
Note Because of some known issues and incompatibilities with Netscape Navigator, you must use the IE browser when using the WEBpatch feature.
Step 2 Download MSIISRollup.exe to a temporary location on your computer.
•For a local BBSM installation, go to Step 5.
•For a remote BBSM installation, continue with Step 3.
Step 3 In the IE browser Address field, type http://<ext_NIC_addr>:9488/www, where <ext_NIC_addr> is the external NIC address of the remote BBSM server. For example, type http://10.10.1.2:9488/www, and press Enter.
Step 4 Log on with your username and password. The remote BBSM Dashboard appears.
Note You must have administrator privileges to log on. Do not enter any information in the Domain field.
Step 5 From the BBSM Dashboard, use the WEBpatch utility to install this patch.
Refer to the Cisco BBSM 5.2 User Guide for instructions on installing and transferring BBSM patches.
Note After the installation is complete, you can verify that the patch was installed. From a remote location, access the BBSM Dashboard, and click WEBpatch. Click the Patch Log tab. From the Patches drop-down menu, select 5207. If you see CPatchUtil::InstallPatch started, MSIISRollup.exe was successfully installed.
From the local BBSM server, choose My Computer > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. If you see Windows 2000 Hotfix (Pre-SP4) [See Q327696 for more information], MSIISRollup.exe was successfully installed.

Technical Assistance Center
The Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two levels of support are available: the Cisco TAC Web Site and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center.
Cisco TAC inquiries are categorized according to the urgency of the issue:
•Priority level 4 (P4)—You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.
•Priority level 3 (P3)—Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.
•Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.
•Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.
The Cisco TAC resource that you choose is based on the priority of the problem and the conditions of service contracts, when applicable.
Cisco TAC Web Site
You can use the Cisco TAC Web Site to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC Web Site, go to this URL:
All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco service contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site. The Cisco TAC Web Site requires a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to this URL to register:
If you are a Cisco.com registered user, and you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC Web Site, you can open a case online by using the TAC Case Open tool at this URL:
If you have Internet access, we recommend that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC Web Site.
Cisco TAC Escalation Center
The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses priority level 1 or priority level 2 issues. These classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer automatically opens a case.
To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to this URL:
Before calling, please check with your network operations center to determine the level of Cisco support services to which your company is entitled: for example, SMARTnet, SMARTnet Onsite, or Network Supported Accounts (NSA). When you call the center, please have available your service agreement number and your product serial number.
