Update Rollup 11 for Windows Azure Pack Web Sites Version 2

Introduction
This article describes the issues that are fixed in Update Rollup 11 for Windows Azure Pack Web Sites version 2. Additionally, it contains the installation instructions for the update rollup.

Issues that are fixed in this update rollup

  • The UseWebDeploySCM configuration value was changed from True to False by UR9.
  • Failure to upload file via FTP when you're using the External File Server configuration.
  • The FileServerType parameter of the Set-WebsitesConfig PowerShell cmdlet is case-sensitive.
  • The DataService component generates a high volume of HTTP logs, which exhausts the available disk space. This implements a cleanup operation that cleans up the DataService logs that exceed a configurable limit (DataServiceMaxLogSizeInMB). By default, this limit is set to 1024. To change this default setting, you can edit the value in the Settings area of the Web Management Console on the Controller role.
  • When you're running Web Jobs within a domain-joined deployment and with Windows Authentication enabled, the process environment block is not populated correctly. This causes problems in expanding environment variables and issues when you're connecting to other services—for example, SQL Server and LDAP Services.
  • Added support for the .NET Framework 4.6.1.
  • The RUNTIME.SITEUSAGECOUNTERS_INCREMENTUSAGECOUNTERS query is executed at too high a frequency. This causes high CPU usage on deployments of SQL Server. This has been resolved by adding additional indexes on Runtime.SiteQuotas and Runtime.OwnersQuotas.
  • TrustUnlisted is not honored by WAP Web Sites.
  • Added the capability to remove a controller that's marked as "Not Ready" when you're using the Web Management Console.
  • Default SKUs are not installed if the Pre-Configured External FileServer option is used during manual installation.
  • PHP Frameworks have been upgraded to be in sync with Microsoft Azure App Service, with the addition of PHP 7.0 (x86 and x64) and the associated SQL Server driver.
