Update rollup for the "Classification Management" item in File Server Resource Manager


You have the Microsoft File Server Resource Manager service that is running under the File Services role on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2. On this computer, you use classification properties or classification rules to classify some files. Under this configuration, you may experience the following issues.

Issue 1

Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a new classification property and a new classification rule.
  • In the properties dialog box of the new classification rule, you select Content Classifier in the Classification mechanism item of the Classification tab.
  • You click Advanced on the same tab, and then you select the Additional Classification Parameters tab. You type a parameter name and then type a value that has the OR logical operator (|), such as an "x|y" value. You click OK and then click OK again to apply the setting.
  • You reopen the properties dialog of the new classification rule to check the parameter that was typed.

In this scenario, the parameter is not saved successfully. For example, "x" is saved as its value and "y" is created as a new parameter name. Therefore, the new classification rule does not work as expected.

Issue 2

Compared with the RC version, the performance of the file classification and the File Server Resource Manager-generated reports are decreased by approximately 25 percent to 75 percent.

Issue 3

You use the File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) to handle several files. You do not have write permission on those files, or those files are marked as read-only. FCI produces an error for every file. Therefore, classification performance is very slow.

Issue 4

You cannot save file classification properties correctly when the related file paths are longer than 236 characters. Therefore, file classification for these files fail.


Cause of the issue 1

This issue occurs because File Server Resource Manager uses the OR logical operator (|) incorrectly to indicate the boundary between different entries in the parameter list.

Cause of the issue 2

This issue occurs because of the intensive tracing caused by the file classification and the File Server Resource Manager-generated reports.

Cause of the issue 3

This issue occurs because the File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) does not use the backup permission to update files and to ignore read-only files.

Cause of the issue 4

This issue occurs because of an incorrect length limitation on the file path.
