October 11, 2016, update for SharePoint Foundation 2013 (KB3118371)

Applies to: Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013 Service Pack 1

This article describes update KB3118371 for Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013, which was released on October 11, 2016. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and fixes


  • Translates some terms in multiple languages to make sure that the meaning is accurate.
  • Fixes the following issue:
    As part of SharePoint database upgrade, the members of the db_owner role are deleted from the role, except for the "dbo" user and the user who runs the upgrade. This is done for enhanced security to make sure that an errant account isn't inadvertently left with the db_owner role permissions. However, there may be situations where this behavior isn't desirable. For example, RBS may be broken every time that an upgrade is run. In this situation, a registry key is added to bypass this behavior.

    Note Before you install this update, follow the steps in the Registry information section to create the registry key.
