INTRODUCTION

List of issues that are fixed

This hotfix fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • If you do not enable some templates to be used in subsites, these templates still appear in the Meeting Workspace subsite.

    Note After you apply this hotfix, follow these steps:
    1. Click Site Settings in the Site Actions list.
    2. Under Look and Feel, click Page Layout and Site Template.
    3. Click to select the Reset all subsites to inherit these preferred subsite template settings check box.
  • You have Contribute permissions for a Windows SharePoint Services Web site. However, you cannot see the Manage attendees link in the Meeting Workspace subsite.
  • You create a content type that is named Duplicate Test on a SharePoint Web site. Then, you create a content type that is named Duplicate Test on the subsite of the SharePoint Web site. If you use the Stsadm command to export the parent site, and then you import the parent site to a new site, you receive the following error message:
    A duplicate name "Duplicate Test" was found.
  • If you want to communicate with the Directory Management service to enable incoming e-mail messages, you must add the local farm administrator account and the Application Pool account to the local Administrators group. However, this increases the risk that something unknown might occur in the farm.
  • You set the Allow Items from this list in search results? option of a list to No. Then, you save the list as a template. When you use the saved template to create a new list, the Allow Items from this list in search results? option of the new list is Yes.
  • If you copy files and folders to a different location in a document library, the number of list IDs increases exponentially. When the available list IDs become exhausted, an ID that is still being used will be reused. Therefore, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
    The URL 'url to uploaded doc' is invalid. It may refer to a nonexistent file or folder, or refer to a valid file or folder that is not in this current web.
  • An option was added to let users select an alternative representation of the currency symbol of a list.
  • You can send documents to Records Center only when you use the URL of the default zone to browse to the main site. If you use any other zone URL to browse to the main site, and then you try to send documents to Records Center, you receive the following error message:
    Error: Value does not fall within the expected range.
  • You have a document that has a date field and that uses non-U.S. date regional settings. If you try to send this document to Records Center, you receive the following error message:
    An error occurred while sending file to the record center.
    The MOSS RC Records Center is not properly configured for this request.
  • Workflow generated e-mail messages will not use HTTPS. Therefore, you cannot use workflow from a server that is using HTTPS.
  • After you upgrade a SharePoint Web site from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, you cannot use Windows SharePoint Services APIs to migrate content.
  • If you use a Form-based authentication provider, workflows that are configured to use groups fail.
  • When you request access to a Windows SharePoint Services page, the SharePoint site sends an e-mail message to the owner of the page. However, the e-mail message does not contain the UserDisplayName value. Instead, it contains only the AccountName value.
  • After you unghost a Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 site, and then you migrate it to Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, Windows SharePoint Services search does not work.
  • You have more than two content types in a list. You modify content type order on the Change New Button Order and Default Content Type page. After you back up and then restore the SharePoint site, the list becomes inaccessible, and you receive the following error message:
    Cannot complete this action. Please try again.
  • It takes several minutes for a copy operation to complete in a library.
  • When you try to perform a farm backup from Central Administration or Stsadm, the backup disk space requirements are not calculated correctly. Even though you have sufficient disk space, you may receive the following error message:
    This page contains one or more errors. Fix the following before continuing: There is not enough disk space. Free up space on your hard disk and then try again.

    After you have installed this hotfix, if you have verified that you have enough disk space, use the stsadm -backup operation with the -force parameter to back up your farm. The force parameter tells SharePoint to ignore the disk space check and proceed with the backup. Backups performed from Central Administration will continue to fail after installing the hotfix.
  • You have a custom Date/Time column that is equal to the Created/Modified column of a list. When you upload a file to the list, the custom Date/Time column does not show the correct value.
  • If you change the order of some questions in a survey, the content deployment job may fail.
  • After you modify the welcome page of a site, incremental deployment fails.
  • You cannot upload multiple documents to a document library. When you click OK to upload multiple documents, nothing happens.
  • When your Active Directory directory service policy requires more than eight characters in a password, you cannot use the Stsadm command to create a new site in Account Creation Mode. This is because the Stsadm command creates a hardcoded password that has a length of eight characters.
  • When inheritance is enabled on a subsite, you may experience the following problems on the child subsites:
    • If you visit the child subsites, and you do not append "/default.aspx" to the Web address, you receive an "HTTP 500" error.
    • If the permission inheritance on the child subsites is enabled, you receive the following error message when you try to break the permission inheritance:
      Error, Cannot complete this action
    • When you use the Stsadm -0 command to export from the site collection, you receive the following error message:
      FatalError: There is no row at position 0
  • You have two lists that are linked through a simple ID mechanism. When you browse the page that contains the two lists, you do not experience any problems. However, when you browse to another page, and then you return to the original page, the connection between the two lists is broken.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You set the regional setting to Germany. Therefore, the decimal separator is a comma (,).
    • You create a customized list in a team site.
    • You open the site in Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 to customize the Edit View page, and then you enter 1,23.
    In this scenario, the EditForm.aspx page ignores the decimal separator. For example, a value of 1,23 in the number field is replaced by 123.
  • On a Windows Vista-based computer, you check out a file that is greater than 5 megabytes (MB). When you try to check in the file, the file is truncated to 5 MB. Therefore, the file is corrupted.
  • An incremental content deployment job may cause 100 percent CPU usage on a computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server. Therefore, you cannot access a farm for several minutes.
  • When you perform a content deployment from one farm to another, the Content Query Web Part of the target site displays the following error message:
    There is a problem with the query that this web part is issuing. Check the configuration of this web part and try again.
    However, the content deployment job does not display an error.
  • After you apply the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Infrastructure Update, the URLs are not mapped according to the addresses that are specified for the alternative access mapping.
  • After you apply the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Infrastructure Update, the Edit View page is not opened when you click Edit on the current view. Instead, the Create New View page is opened.
  • After you apply the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Infrastructure Update, workflow occurs for only some e-mail messages that are received.
This hotfix together with hotfix 956056 also fixes the following issues that are not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • When you do a full-text query, you cannot use the equal sign (=) for the column of the Number type.
  • On a SharePoint site, when you search for common Chinese names, you may receive the following misleading message:
    The query you typed contains only words to exclude from results. Type one or more search words to include, and then retry your search.
  • A full crawl may take several weeks to be completed. Additionally, the crawl may stop responding, and you cannot stop it or cancel it.
  • After you install the following hotfix packages, you cannot use the Search Web service to search the encoded paths. For example, an encoded path may be "http://servername/shared%20documents."

    941422 Description of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 post-Service Pack 1 hotfix package: January 31, 2008
  • You create a custom security trimmer, and then you register it to two Shared Services Providers. When you search programmatically based on one of the providers, the correct search results are displayed, and all the security-trimmed URLs from this provider are available.

    If you search programmatically on another provider during the same session, the correct search results are displayed as expected. However, the URLs that are passed to the security trimmer are from the previous provider.
  • You develop a solution that is based on Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. The basic part of the solution is a custom security trimmer. In this scenario, you add items to a list, and then you modify the permissions on these items. However, when you try to search items from the list, the items in the search results do not have titles, and the URLs are invalid.
  • The queries that have stemmed words take a longer time to return results.

    For example, a query for "zone" takes 5 seconds. However, a query for "zone 2" takes 15 seconds. (The number "2" in "zone 2" is the stemmed word.)
  • When you try to crawl a content source, the offline files in the content source are indexed unexpectedly. The offline files are the files that have the PR_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_OFFLINE attribute set.

    Note After you apply this hotfix, offline files are not indexed any longer.
  • You may experience the following symptoms after you start a crawl:
    • Event ID 9502 is repeatedly logged in the Application log.
    • The Mssearch.exe process reaches more than 80 percent CPU usage consistently.
    This issue may occur if invalid content is crawled.
  • When you configure the Search Core Results Web Part to return a custom managed property of the Date and Time type, only the date part is returned. This issue occurs regardless of how you configure the Search Core Results Web Part.
Note To resolve these issues, you must install both hotfix 956056 and hotfix 956057.
