Issues that are fixed in this update rollup
Update Rollup 2 for System Center 2012 R2 Service Provider Foundation resolves the following issues:
When you resize the dynamic memory of virtual machines to a new maximum memory size that exceeds the original maximum memory size, an error occurs, and the resizing operation fails.
When many subscriptions are created or edited at the same time, the subscriptions may end up in an out-of-sync state.
The Add-UserRoleProperties.ps1 script does not prevent a VMNetworkQuota object that has a null stamp ID from being created. Then, a failure occurs in the Windows Azure portal during synchronization of the subscriptions.
When you update a customer quota through SPF, an exception is thrown if one of the artifacts that is being updated is missing in Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM).
The Get-SCSPFVMRoleGalleryItem cmdlet does not populate the ResourceExtensionProperty property as expected.
You cannot create a virtual machine from a Windows Server 2012 R2 VHD by using Microsoft Azure Pack. This issue occurs because the product key of the VHD is not specified.
