This article describes update 4011049 for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2016 that was released on August 8, 2017. This update has a prerequisite.

This public update delivers the first feature pack (Feature Pack 1) for SharePoint Server 2016 that contains the following features:

  • Administrative Actions Logging

  • MinRole enhancements

  • SharePoint Custom Tiles

  • Hybrid Auditing (preview)

  • Hybrid Taxonomy

  • OneDrive API for SharePoint on-premises

    Renaming project failed with error code hr = 0x80020009

  • When you try to rename a project to a name that contains the ampersand character, you receive the following error message:

    Renaming project failed with error code hr = 0x80020009

  • After you drill into a project and open the Project Detail page in the Project Center, you may receive the following error message:

    Sorry, something went wrong
    An unexpected error has occurred.
    Web Parts Maintenance Page: If you have permission, you can use this page to temporarily close Web Parts or remove personal settings. For more information, contact your site administrator.

    This error occurs if you don't have the Open Project permission.
