November 10, 2015, update for SharePoint Server 2013 (KB3101362)

Applies to: Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 Service Pack 1

This article describes update KB3101362 for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013, which was released on November 10, 2015. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and fixes

Fixes the following issues:
  • When you try to view a site feed that contains more than 5000 posts, the content can't be displayed and you receive the following error message:
    Looks like somebody deleted this conversation.
  • When you try to access a discussion board that has special characters (such as the plus character "+") in the title, you receive the following error message:
    Sorry, something went wrong. Cannot complete this action. Please try again, followed by correlation ID.
  • When you run the Connect to Outlook function for a task list that has the Send e-mail when ownership is assigned option enabled, multiple email alerts are sent.
  • Assume that you create host-named site collections and map an Intranet zone URL to the site collections. Then, you access an enterprise search center by using the Intranet zone URL. When you do a search in the search center and try to follow an item from the search results from the hover card dialog box, this operation fails with an internal error message.
  • If you set the MaxDownloadSize property of a Search service application to a value that's greater than 100 (default is 64), the indexing of files fails, and you receive the following error message: 
    Processing this item failed because the parser server ran out of memory.
    This update improves the format detection of files that are larger than 100 megabytes (MB) (up to 1 gigabyte) and is more successful in indexing these types of large files such as PowerPoint Presentations that have embedded videos.
  • You can delete a captured version of a document set even if you don't have the delete permission.
  • The Most Popular items function for out of the box document libraries doesn't sort on the Ever and the Recent options.
