Issues that are fixed in this update rollup
- Continuous WebJobs stop and do not restart until a tenant logs on to the Windows Azure Pack Portal. This is resolved by enabling the AlwaysOn feature of the website. You can do this by using the Set-WebsitesSiteConfig PowerShell cmdlet, and by passing 1 (true) or 0 (false) to the AlwaysOn property, as in the following example:
Set-WebsitesSiteConfig -Name "ExampleSite" -AlwaysOn 1
Note The AlwaysOn property is enabled on Dedicated instances. By default, it is not enabled on Shared instances.
- You cannot switch deployment slots by using "OnPrem" cmdlets. Support is added for Get-WebSitesSlotsDifferences, New-WebSitesSiteSlot, and Switch-WebSitesSiteSlots in Windows Azure Pack Web Sites.
- Microsoft ODBC Driver 11 for SQL Server and Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server are now preinstalled on workers.
- Monitoring for websites fails after you upgrade to Update Rollup 6 or Update Rollup 7.
- When a Worker instance is removed, the Front End role maintains a stale copy of the connection string and tries to reset the connection string periodically.
- "HTTP 404" or "Not Found" status response code is returned when hostnames are stored in Unicode.
- A time-out occurs when you query a large metering usage database if the database table has more than 3 million records.
- Option to use an external file server is restored for new installations. The External file server option is improved to enforce storage quotas while removing problems that interact with many different storage devices and new storage technologies on Windows Server. This includes Scale-Out File Server (SOFS).
Note To configure this option during controller configuration, select the "Use an external file server" option when you select the file server type.
