Consider the following scenario:
This problem occurs because update 977338 of OCS 2007 R2 does not correctly check the changes already made by update 969819. Therefore, update 977338 tries to update the changes again. However, the SQL database update fails and the Compliance database remains as update 969819. When Group Chat Compliance Server starts, it validates the Compliance database. If the Compliance database is not in the expected state that is made by update 977338, Group Chat Compliance Server shuts down.
To fix this problem, apply the following update package:
