Known issue with Cumulative Update for Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server

Important This update applies to the caching functionality of AppFabric 1.1 only. We recommend that you install the update only on servers that are running the AppFabric cache or that are using the AppFabric cache client.

Issue

After you install the update, the AppFabric Configuration Wizard incorrectly reports the status of the Persistence and Monitoring configuration as "Not configured." Additionally, the user interface status is incorrect.

To verify that the services are running, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Powershell administration console.

  2. Run the Get-ASAppMonitoring –Root command to verify the configuration of the state.

  3. Run the Get-ASAppInstanceStore –Root command to verify the instance store connection strings.


This issue can safely be ignored as it does not affect the functionality of either AppFabric Hosting Services or the services that are hosted by AppFabric Hosting Services.
