Symptoms

After you install the November 2014 update rollup (3000850) in Windows Server 2012 R2, you may encounter one of the following issues.
Issue 1
The SIL hourly task examines the wrong certificate store when it tries to forward the data over HTTPS to a target URI.
Issue 2
After a virtual machine (VM) is migrated to a different hypervisor host, incomplete data is forwarded over HTTPS because the host change does not trigger a new local inventory as you expect.
