INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • When you decline a recurring meeting request from the meeting workspace, the e-mail message that is sent by the SharePoint server is not recognized by Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 as a meeting declination. Therefore, Outlook does not update the meeting attendee status to "Declined."
  • You migrate discussion boards from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. Discussion boards work fine after that. However, if you export and import a discussion board into another Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site, the thread relationship is broken, and all entries appear in one list.
  • Content deployment target site permissions that are not inherited can be removed.
  • The entries for e-mail-enabled lists are being deleted from the EmailEnabledLists table in the configuration database. When this issue occurs, incoming e-mail messages for these lists are not delivered. Therefore, the e-mail messages are deleted, and errors are logged for "Unkown alias."
  • If you have a list that has more than 500 unique scope IDs and if the Content Approval option is enabled, duplicated items may appear in the default view of this list.
  • In a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site, alerts for All day Calendar events do not show the correct start and end time in alert e-mail messages.
  • When you try to modify group membership of the built-in groups of site collections, you may receive a "System.UnauthorizedAccessException" exception. For example, this issue may occur when you try to add a new user to a built-in group. Built-in groups include visitors, owners, members, and so on.
  • If you use the SharePoint Content Migration API to export large sites, the performance is poor.
  • You create a new page in the source variation by using a customized page layout that has calculated columns. However, when you try to allow the variation engine to propagate the new page to the other variation label Web sites, it fails.
  • When you move through a specific blog category page, you cannot move to the Next page of blog entries. By default, the paging is set to 10 items per page. However, when you move to the next page in a category, a "There are no posts in this category" message is displayed. This message is incorrect. Paging in the All Posts area works as expected.
  • Before an incremental content deployment, you activate and then deactivate the feature that creates content types on both the source site and the destination site. During the incremental deployment, the content type delete operation fails, and the content deployment stops with an error message.
  • All meetings that you view under a meeting workspace display folder numbers instead of document names.
  • You create a versioned page, and you create a major version and a minor version. When you delete the versioned page and try to export the document library, it fails.
  • If you have an orphan site collection, the XML produced by the stsadm -o enumsites command is not well formed, as shown in the following example.
    <Sites Count="3"> 
    <Site Url="http://webapp/" ... /> 
    <Site Error="Error message">  
    <Site Url="http://webapp/..." ... /> 
    </Site>
    The last tag is missing an "s." It should be </Sites>. Also, the <site Error …> tag is not correctly closed.
  • After you install update 957691, you cannot set a user type column from the workflow when you create a new list item.
  • If you programmatically run the SPListItem.SystemUpdate(bool) method on a document library, the latest check-in comment will be removed.
  • If you add a Site Columns choice type that has a slash (/) in the column name to a document library, you cannot change the value of it on a SharePoint site. However, you can change the value by opening the document in Microsoft Word, editing the property, and saving it back to the document library.
  • When you build an application to control a document library, the SPFolder.CopyTo() method does not increase the List.ItemCount number, this will cause inconsistency in the list.
  • The Microsoft PKM Search Filter Daemon (Mssdmn.exe) crashes every 15 seconds when crawled using certificate authentication.
  • When you try to back up the Shared Search index, it always fails, and you receive the following error message in the backup log:
    [30/9/2008 2:11:46]: Verbose: Starting object: Shared Search Index. [30/9/2008 3:12:17]: Error: Object Shared Search Index failed in event OnBackupComplete. For more information, see the error log located in the backup directory. WebException: The current operation timed-out after 3600 seconds [30/9/2008 3:12:17]: Debug: at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.CatalogPauseTimeout.WaitAndThrowIfTimeout() at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchApi.CatalogResumeCrawl(GathererPauseReason reason) at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchSharedApplication.Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.Backup.IBackupRestore.OnBackupComplete(Object sender, SPBackupInformation args) [30/9/2008 3:12:17]: Verbose: Starting object: SharedServices_Default_Search.
  • When you search on a SharePoint site, the performance may sometimes be slow.
  • Search results are not security trimmed for anonymous users who access the sites that have the lockdown feature activated.
  • 961175 Description of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 hotfix package (Sts.msp): December 19, 2008
  • 967617 After you set the Enable RSS Feeds option to No on the Web Application General Settings page in SharePoint Portal Server Central Administration, the search result pages still show the RSS icon
  • 960487 A Windows SharePoint Service 3.0 site cannot be restored when the host header length for the site is greater than 56 characters
  • 963028 Description of a time zone update for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0
  • 967135 The Check Names function does not honor the Peoplepicker-onlysearchwithinsitecollection setting in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0
  • 967612 You cannot limit the People Picker on the site-collection level to find only users in a specific organization unit (OU) in a trusted domain in a SharePoint site
  • 967568 If users update content on the site while you are backing up a SharePoint site collection, the backup file may become corrupted
  • 967341 Error message when you perform a crawl in a SharePoint site: "Error in the Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services Protocol Handler"
  • 967053 After you apply hotfix package 956056, a file that has the offline attribute set cannot be crawled by Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007
  • 967671 When you crawl file shares that are accessed through a domain-based Distributed File System (DFS) in SharePoint Server 2007, you experience poor performance
  • 967733 When you include more than one search scope in a search on a SharePoint Server 2007 site, noise words are not filtered
  • 967209 When you perform a crawl in a SharePoint Server 2007 site, the crawl runs indefinitely
  • 967577 If you search the text in the AboutMe managed property in a SharePoint Server 2007 site, no results are returned
  • 967229 The Wssadmin service may leak memory when you have Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 installed
