Description of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Cumulative Update Server Hotfix Package (Sts.msp): August 25, 2009

This article describes the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 issues that are fixed in the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 hotfix package that is dated August 25, 2009.

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • You send a message to a document library. If the message has a long subject and its attachment has a long file name, the attachment is dropped. Then, you cannot find the attachment in the document library.
  • Some application pages do not follow restrictions applied by the Enterprise Content Management Lockdown feature. For example, if you create a site collection by using the Publishing Portal template, anonymous users can access the /_layouts/webpartgallerypickerpage.aspx page. By default, the Publishing Portal template enables the Enterprise Content Management lockdown feature.
  • You move a sub-site to another location, and then delete its previous parent site. After that, if you run an incremental deployment job, the incremental deployment job fails.
  • You have limited access permission on a library level for a document library. Some Excel workbooks have their own item level permissions and you have edit permissions on those Excel workbooks. When you try to open one of those Excel workbooks, you receive the following error message:
    • Excel Web Access
    • An error has occurred.
    • Please contact your system administrator if this problem persists.
  • If you use the SPFolder.MoveTo method or the SPFolder.CopyTo method to move items and folders between document libraries, an incremental crawl does not obtain the moved or copied items.
  • If you move a folder to its own subfolder, the folder is unaccessible.
  • A user is a member of more than 200 site groups. If you log on as that user, and then call the SPWeb.AllRolesForCurrentUser API method for obtaining the SPRoleDefinition class, you receive an "HRESULT 0x80040E14" error.
  • If a content deployment job is running on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 sites when you are updating content, the deployment job fails randomly. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
    System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)
  • You import a team site that had custom site content types that were created in a parent and child relationship. Then, you cannot create a new child content type based on the imported parent content type.
  • When you try to view a page that contains a calculated column, you receive a "The SQL server might not be started" error message.
  • If you rename a folder name and then open a document in the folder, the approval comments for the document are removed unexpectedly.
  • If you delete a document from an Office SharePoint Server 2007 site when a content deployment job is running on the site, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
    System.IndexOutOfRangeException - There is no row at position 0.
  • You have some custom fields that have the PropertySchema field type. After you upgrade to Office SharePoint Server 2007 Service Pack 2, you cannot create a column by using those custom fields at the site column level.
  • You have a Web application that has more than five incoming URLs. You cannot change Alternate Access Mappings (AAM) settings after you install the 2007 Microsoft Office system cumulative update that was released in April 2008.
  • You visit user-created pages in a pages library. In this situation, the currently highlighted site in a SharePoint navigation bar is no longer highlighted.
  • When anonymous users try to view the properties of a file or the properties of a page that is checked-out, they receive an "An unexpected error has occurred" error message.
  • When you run a full crawl, certain .xml files that have no spaces between tags are not indexed properly.
  • You create lookup columns that enable multiple values in lists with items that do not inherit permissions from the list. When you try to visit a view of the list, you receive a "RENDER FAILED" error message. When you try to view the properties of an item in the list, you receive a "Must declare the table variable @_scopeTbl" error message.
  • You have some documents in external binary large object (BLOB) storage. You notice an inconsistency between the metadata property values that are stored at the item level and the metadata property values that are stored in the external BLOB storage.
  • You build a custom Web part to collect all the checked-out files that are present on a site collection. When you try to use the custom Web part, you find the following error message in the Application event log.
    Event Type:            ErrorEvent Source:        Windows SharePoint Services 3Event Category:     Database Event ID: 5586Description:Unknown SQL Exception 4104 occurred. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below. The multi-part identifier "ListOrds.JoinKeyId1" could not be bound.
  • When you try to add a new user to a SharePoint group, you open the People Picker dialog box. Then, the "Title" column is mistranslated in the Hungarian version of Office SharePoint Server 2007. The People Picker dialog box uses "Megszólítás" instead of "Beosztás" in Hungarian as the name of "Title" column.
  • You install Office SharePoint Server 2007 Service Pack 2 and the cumulative update that was released in April 2009. You create some sites in the Server_Name\sites format. However, you do not create a root site collection (\). When you run a full crawl, you receive the following error message in the Application event log:
    Log Name: Application  Source: Office Server Search  Event ID: 2436  Task Category: Gatherer  Level: Warning  Keywords: Classic  Description:  The start address <https://Server_Name> cannot be crawled.  Context: Application 'Shared Services Provider', Catalog 'Portal Content'
  • You use document libraries with versioning enabled. You use site collection auditing to audit all view events. When any action occurs, an audit event log is created. However, the auditing only works for the current versions of documents. It does not work in earlier versions of documents.
  • After you install Office SharePoint Server 2007 Service Pack 2, you receive the following error message when you try to visit the SiteSubs.aspx page:
    Unknown Error
    If you have enabled the stack trace in the Web.config file for the Web application you recieve the following error:
    Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationPages.SiteSubsPage.OnLoad(EventArgs e) at System.Web.UI.Control.LoadRecursive() at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint)

  • 974550 You cannot change the name of an Active Directory security group in SharePoint Server 2007
  • 973408 The value of the PluggableSecurityTrimmerId registry key is not updated after you register a custom security trimmer in SharePoint Server 2007
  • 973872 When you run a search in a custom scope in SharePoint Server 2007, no result is returned for a multiple value lookup field
  • 973101 Error message when you try to run a search query in SharePoint Server 2007 by using the SOME ARRAY clause: "Your Query Malformed"
  • 973875 An incremental crawl does not obtain moved items and moved folders if you use the SPFolder.MoveTo method to move the items and the folders in SharePoint Server 2007
  • 972955 Error message when you try to run a query in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0: "The search request was unable to connect to the Search Service"
  • 974086 The received alert e-mail message contains incorrect links after you extend a Web application to the Internet zone and then set up a search alert in SharePoint Server 2007
  • 974414 Server name mappings are only updated on the initial crawl of a content source or when new documents are added to the index in SharePoint Server 2007
