Improvements and fixes

  • This update improves the warning message when you try to use the Psconfig command-line tool to disconnect a server from a farm. The warning message will inform you that any services running on the server, including Search if it exists, will be removed if you disconnect the server from the farm.

  • This update improves the warning message when you try to use the Central Admin to delete a server. The warning message will emphasize that you should only use this mechanism to remove orphaned servers from the farm. If the server still exists, you should use PSconfig command-line tool or PowerShell to remove the server from the farm.

  • This update enables you to create all new sites for the existing content in the configuration of Self-Service site collection management in SharePoint Online when you migrate from SharePoint Server 2016 to SharePoint Online.

  • This update improves the translation of Task Mode setting name for the Spanish version of Project 2016.

  • This update translates some terms in multiple languages to make sure that the meaning is accurate.
