December 13, 2016, update for SharePoint Foundation 2013 (KB3128011)

Applies to: Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013 Service Pack 1

This article describes update KB3128011 for Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013, which was released on December 13, 2016. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and fixes

  • Translates some terms in multiple languages to make sure that the meaning is accurate.

  • Updates translations of Wiki page alerts to make sure that the meaning is accurate in Dutch.
  • Translates the strings on the Submit button of the Multi-authentication selection page in multiple languages in SharePoint Foundation 2013.

  • Fixes the following issue:
    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. The PSConfig tool 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, 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 issue. This update now presents the detailed error message to identify which failure affects critical configuration tasks and which failure affects noncritical configuration tasks in the PSConfig summary. Error messages about missing SharePoint features now include the feature title instead of the feature GUID only. Error messages are displayed when the upgrading or updating is improved. Finally, the summary message for an upgrade failure includes instructions for how to retry the configuration tasks that failed.
