Summary

This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft Project Server 2010 hotfix package that is dated September 14, 2012.

INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • When enterprise flag fields are defined in a project, and you publish the project, the MSP_TASK_CUSTOM_FIELD_VALUES_SHADOW table in the published database contains two times as many records as the original table.

    Note To resolve this issue, apply update 2687386 on the Project client application. For more information about the update, click the following article number:
    2687386 Description of the Project 2010 hotfix package (Project-x-none.msp): August 28, 2012

  • Assume that you set a baseline cost value for a task that contains negative cost values. When you publish the task while it is synchronizing with the Reporting database, the negative cost values are converted to 0 in the MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay and MSP_EpmAssignmentBaselineByDay tables.
  • On the History page for certain projects in Project Server 2010, error messages are displayed in the status updates field. These error messages are displayed even though you already applied the updates to resolve the issues that caused the error messages.
  • Assume that you assign a resource to a task, and the resource's calendar contains nonworking time. Additionally, assume that you enter actual work for the task. When you open the task, the actual work is displayed in the wrong time period.
  • Assume that you submit actual work for a resource that has a nonzero cost rate on the My Tasks page. When you publish the project that contains the resource, the actual costs that are calculated through the actual work are not updated in the reporting database.
  • When you configure a Project Server 2010 server to run in single entry mode, and then you open a project, tasks that are manually scheduled in the project are not displayedin the Add an Existing Task dialog box. Therefore, you cannot enter time for these tasks.
  • When you start a delegation session as a delegate in Project Server 2010, auto-approval rules for task updates do not work as expected.
  • Assume that you assign some material resources to some summary tasks in a project. When you edit and publish the project through Project Web App, the number of material resources in the published project is much greater than the number of material resources in the original project.
