You use a tool that calls the GetChanges() method in a loop in order to obtain a list of changes from a Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0 site. You notice that this tool takes a long time to obtain changes from the WSS 3.0 site.
You use the Check Names feature in Windows SharePoint Service (WSS) 3.0.The feature resolves names very slowly. This issue occurs when WSS 3.0 checks names from NT4.0 domains.
In a Discussion list, you delete a list item. The attachment that is related to the list item is not deleted in the back-end database.
When the Content Approval feature is enabled, only users who can approve items can receive alerts for minor version documents. After you apply this update, users who can also read items can receive alerts for minor version documents.
Note Draft Item Security determines whether users can read items or approve items.
You use the Content Deployment feature to transfer a site collection to another target. You cannot create new sites on the site collection after you transfer it. This issue occurs because the variation system does not propagate pages correctly. This issue also occurs because the wrong Content Types are used.
You perform the incremental deployment in the French version of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.When you perform the incremental deployment, the user information list has columns that are duplicated.
You propagate a Web page by using variation systems. The SPListItem.ForwardLinks property is not updated until the page is published in the target variation sites.
You have a sub-site that contains a lookup column that refers to a list in the root Web site. When you do an incremental content deployment, the deployment succeeds. However, you receive a warning message:
Unable to find a lookup list /sites/PublishingSite/RootDocLib. The list is not part of the exported package and does not exist in the destination site collection.
The lookup column is not deployed and the value for the column is not set. Additionally, the lookup value list is empty.
The SharePoint domain has a trust relationship with a remote domain. A user in the remote domain can access a Microsoft Office SharePoint Services (MOSS) site by using a domain local security group. A profile is created for the user at the site collection level. Then, the profile is stored in the UserInfo table that is in the content database. Information about user access is stored in the tp_ExternalToken column of the database table.
When the tp_ExternalToken column is updated by the timer job incorrectly, alerts are not sent. Additionally, the alerts would be security trimmed.
When you try to restore a site collection that contains content whose URL path length will be longer than 260 characters, the restoration fails. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
One or more files in the restored site collection will exceed the maximum supported path length. Please select a shorter destination site address and try again.
After you install this update, restoration will complete if your site URL path length is less than or equal to the original site URL path length. However, you will only be able to access content in the restored site that is within the maximum supported path length of 260 characters.
You use the –includeusersecurity option to import a site from a .cab file to a SharePoint site. Then, you see a list of deleted users when you click All People in the SharePoint site. However, you do not expect to see this list.
The following is a sample code that uses the –includeusersecurity option to import a site from a .cab file:
When you click X more items in a SharePoint calendar, the calendar view does not display all the items that it contains.
You create an ASPX page and then add a Dataformwebpart Web part in SharePoint Designer. When you try to delete the list items that have contributor rights in the Web part, you receive an "Access Denied" error. However, the list items are deleted.
When you upload oversized files to a Discussion Board, you receive the following error message:
One or more attachment file is over sized…
Additionally, five discussion topic items are duplicated.
You experience the performance regression that was detected in the 2009 August cumulative update (CU).
You open a UNC-based Web folder in an attachment folder of an Issue Tracking list item. When you drag a file attachment to the attachment folder, four duplicate comments are created for each item that is added.
You experience slow performance when you access a pages library that is deployed through the Content Deployment feature.
In a list, you have a folder that is based on a customer folder content type. The customer folder has a multiple value lookup column. When you rename the folder, the multiple value lookup values are lost.
You create a custom field that derives from the SPFieldLookup class. You add this field to a document library and then enable the field to have multiple values. After you add some values to the column, you run the Content Deployment feature. None of the values for the custom field is transferred successfully to the target farm.
When you run a SharePoint site in a .Net Framework 4.0 process, the site causes .Net Framework 4.0 assembly references to be written to the SharePoint configuration database. Then, you experience failures when you run the SharePoint site in the .Net Framework 2.0.This issue occurs because the .Net Framework 2.0 cannot resolve assembly references in the .Net Framework 4.0.
Note The .Net Framework 4.0 release is planned for March 2010.
You create a data view Web part that uses SQL databases as a data source. When you try to enable the filtering functionality and the sorting functionality, the Web part generates drop-down menus. However, the Web part does not filter or sort.
This issue does not occur when you use SharePoint Lists or SharePoint Library as data sources.
You upload files to a SharePoint site and mark them as "allow everyone to read." "Everyone" is defined as "all authenticated users."For multiple sites that share the same host, such as SharePoint Online, users from one site (Site A) are "authenticated users" on another site (Site B). Therefore, certain files from Site B are visible to users from Site A.
You input values in a page and then submit the page. When information for a mandatory field is missing, you receive the following validation error message:
You must specify a value for this required field.
Then, the lookup column does not keep the values that were changed during the editing process.
You have a multiple value lookup column. You also have a column that contains values that are calculated from another text column. If you use the multiple value lookup column and the calculated column together, you cannot open the Version History page. The Version History page fails, and you receive an unknown error.
Before you install a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 update, you detach the content databases and then install the 2009 August CU for the 2007 Microsoft Office system. When you try to reattach the databases, you receive the following error message:
Index was outside the bounds of the array
