Major issues that are resolved by this update
Issue 1You cannot view Office 365 information through the Dashboard. This issue occurs if the proxy settings are configured to automatically detect the proxy server in Windows Internet Explorer.
Issue 2The file history retention policy does not work together with certain time formats.
Issue 3A hard block occurs on the hardware checks for a hoster.
Issue 4The system returns user tokens instead of cookies in Web API. This may cause a cross-site request forgery (CSRF) issue.
Issue 5The Dashboard crashes when a user add-in is configured as a leftmost add-in.
Issue 6The Domain Configuration Wizard fails if the domain name contains "homeserver" (for example, the domain name is "smithhomeserver.com").
Issue 7The certification authority (CA) root certificate is incompatible with DirectAccess. Therefore, after you deploy DirectAccess on a server, a Windows 7-based client cannot establish a DirectAccess connection to the server.
Note This fix takes effect only if Update Rollup 1 for Windows Server 2012 Essentials is applied before DirectAccess is deployed on the server.
