Á við um: SharePoint Server 2016

This article describes update KB3115441 for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2016, which was released on August 9, 2016. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and fixes

  • Translates some terms in multiple languages to make sure that the meaning is accurate.
  • This update will allow to remove search results from the index until the next incremental crawl.
  • When you run the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard (PSConfig), an error occurs. The error message on the result summary page or in the result summary command line output is generic and doesn't provide enough information to help fix the problem. This update now presents detailed error messages to identify which failures affect critical configuration tasks and which failures affect noncritical configuration tasks in the PSConfig summary. Error messages about missing SharePoint features now include the feature title instead of just the feature GUID. Error messages are displayed when the upgrading or updating has been improved. Finally, the summary message includes instructions for how to retry the configuration tasks that failed.

  • Fixes the following issues:
    • When some products or updates are installed on a SharePoint Server 2016 based computer, the SharePoint configuration database may be unaware of the installed product or update. This can cause a failure when the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard (PSConfig) is running to do an upgrade. PSConfig will now automatically update the product and update state for the local server in the configuration database to avoid the failure.

    • When you run the PSconfig command tool in GUI or cmdlet mode, informative error messages aren't provided. After you install this update, you can understand the error easily.
