Issues that this hotfix package fixes
This hotfix fixes the following issues that are not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
Consider the following scenario:
You publish a SharePoint Portal Server 2007 publishing portal site through Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2006.
The Web application that hosts the publishing portal site is configured to use Allow Anonymous Access and Windows Authentication (NTLM).
Output caching is enabled on the publishing portal site through ISA Server 2006, but output caching fails.
If you press F5 in Internet Explorer to refresh the Web page, the date on the output page is updated. The date should remain constant for the period of time in which the cache is not invalidated. To see the date on the output page in Internet Explorer, right-click the Web page, click View Source, and search for the code that resembles the following:
Rendered using cache profile:Public Internet (Purely Anonymous) at: 2008-10-10T12:00:57
You add the Scheduling Start Date field and the Scheduling End Date field to a Web page. You try to publish a page with Immediately option, you may receive the following error message:
You must specify a valid date within the range of xxx and xxx.
When you review a document library through Site Content and Structure, filtering does not work when the column value contains a semicolon (;).
If you configure the Max. Cache Size setting of the Site collection object cache to more than 2000, an integer overflow exception may occur. You may receive an error message that resembles the following:
Unable to display this Web Part. To troubleshoot the problem, open this Web page in a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible HTML editor such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer. If the problem persists, contact your Web server administrator.
Non-core search Web part queries are not recorded into usage logs.
You add the Scheduling Start Date field and the Scheduling End Date field to a Web page. You set the values for the Scheduling Start Date field and the Scheduling End Date field, and then you wait until the Web page expires. When you try to publish the Web page, you may receive the following error message:
The end date of a page must be in the future. Please edit the end date and try again.
Incremental crawls fail to be scheduled when you have multiple Shared Services Providers (SSPs), and one SSP contains many sources.
You use the Team Site template as the template for the Top-level site in Office SharePoint Server 2007. A subsite owner of the top-level site does not have access permissions to the top-level site. When the subsite owner tries to create his own subsite, the owner may receive an "Access Denied" error message.
You may receive an "ELEMENT NOT FOUND (COM-INTEROP): exception when you are running crawls that overlap. This issue causes the crawls to fail, and SharePoint server does not index any further documents.
When you click the Local Office SharePoint Server Sites link in Content Sources, you may receive the following error message:
Unexpected Error has occurred
Search returns zero results during an index merge process.
This hotfix fixes the following issues:
959122 Users cannot create a new variation of a page that they created in a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 site
960254 Error message when you click Checked out to me in the "Manage Content and Structure" page after you filter the picture library by a custom column: "Cannot find column [repro]"
After you apply this Cumulative Update, scheduled incremental crawls or full crawls never run.
Create a new daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. Or, edit an existing daily, weekly, or monthly schedule.
If the Repeat within the day check box is checked, and you already have a repetition interval, you do not have to do anything
If the Repeat within the day check box is not checked, enter 5 minutes in the Run Every text box. Additionally, enter 6 minutes in the For text box.
