<ul>
<li>
The -UPDATE images include the most recent round of Microsoft patches,
plugging both known WMF holes and many others. The -SP* images of course
DON'T have the holes plugged, but that is no different from before.
</li>
<li>
Within the Emulab code, these images restore linktest to working condition.
</li>
<li>
The other changes are intended to make Windows booting and setup more reliable.
One is that sshd is turned off during rc.bootsetup, since it would
sometimes go into a loop, eating the CPU and preventing setup from
finishing before timing out. Unless you're logging in as root, it won't
do you much good to try to log in before accounts are set up anyway... In
case of trouble, log in via RDP or the serial console, and say "net start
sshd" in a shell.
</li>
<li>
I've also been chasing a random problem where one of the network
interfaces disappears from ipconfig due to a race condition within Windows
startup. rc.cygwin/rc.ifconfig now work harder at resetting the
interfaces, and reboot as a last resort if that fails. It seems that
fixing one interface can make the problem move to another one though.
Unless you use all five available experimental network interfaces in an
experiment topology, this should fix the problem.
</li>
</ul>
