Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • After a user is deleted from Office SharePoint site collection, the user ID is displayed in the Office SharePoint Audit report instead of the username.
  • You create a view for an Office SharePoint list. In the view, you set the condition to greater than or equal to on a column of the list. However,you receive no alert when you configure the alert to send only when an item is changed or is created in the view.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You add a user in an Active Directory domain security group.
    • You add the domain security group as Farm administrators of an Office SharePoint site collection.
    • The Office SharePoint site collection reaches the storage quota limit.
    In this scenario, the user who is the Farm administrator cannot change the storage quota limit of the site collection.
  • You use the Manage Content and Structuretool to copy a document from one document library to another document library.On the destination document library, you set the values of the hidden properties of the two columns labeled Modified and Created toTrue. However, the two columns are hidden.
  • You enable the Create major and minor (draft) versionssetting in the Office SharePoint document library.Additionally, you select the following choices in the Site Collection Audit Settings page:
    • Opening or downloading documents, viewing items in lists, or viewing item properties
    • Editing items
    However,the wrong versions of the document are audited in the Audit reports after you do the operations that are mentioned earlier on document/list/item.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You have an Office SharePoint list view that has a filter. This filter evaluates a Lookup field.
    • The Lookup field enables the Allow multiple values setting.
    • You subscribe to an alert that is based on the list view.
    In this scenario, you will not receive the notification unless the value of the lookup contains the alone value.
  • When you fetch content from an Office SharePoint list and then you update an item in the list, a deadlock may occur. The deadlock causes the Incremental Content Deployment to fail.
  • When you export a list that has many check-in or check-out requests for the list items at the same time, a deadlock occurs. This causes the Incremental Content Deployment to fail.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create a Content Deployment path from an Office SharePoint site to another Office SharePoint site.
    • You create an incremental deployment job for the path.
    • You change the URL of the Office SharePoint site.
    In this scenario, the Incremental Content Deployment job fails.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You have an Office SharePoint list that contains over 1000 unique scopes and filter criteria set.
    • You add two List View Web parts that refer to the list on the same page.
    In this scenario, Office SharePoint reuses the scopes that are queried by the first Web part on the second Web part. Therefore, no results are displayed in the second Web part.
  • When you restore an Office SharePoint site that contains document workspaces to a different URL, the Publish to Source location feature is unusable and you may experience an error message.For example: "There is no publish location associated with <URL of document>"
  • If a user only has Contributor permission on a folder in an Office SharePoint list, they cannot add new items when they are in Datasheet View.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create an Office SharePoint site collection on a wildcard path.
    • You use Form Base Authentication (FBA) to log on to an Office SharePoint non-root site and you do not select the sign me in automatically check box.
    In this scenario, when you try to edit documents in the Office SharePoint site, you will receive an error page.
  • In Office SharePoint, Full Crawl does not index all items of recurring meeting workspaces.
  • You use the calendar month view for an Office SharePoint list. If a multiple day event has the event End Date after the current calendar view, the End Date will not be displayed in the view.
  • The Microsoft Office SharePoint Audit record incorrectly reports "System Account" for users who visit the Office SharePoint site for the first time.
  • When Office SharePoint indexes a Microsoft Office Excel 2003 file that contains phonetic data of Double-byte Character Sets (DBCS), several unspecified strings are not indexed.
  • You use Office SharePoint site manager to copy or to move an item that has Lookup fields in its content type. If any other item of the same content type is opened in the imported list, the first item will display the Document Information Panel incorrectly when you try to use Office Word to open and to edit this item.
  • You use multivalued lookup columns in an Office SharePoint list.You create an alert on the Office SharePoint list to send notifications. When a document is uploaded or is checked in but the values of the multivalued lookup columns are not changed, you will receive a notification e-mail message and the multivalued lookup columns are marked incorrectly as Changed in the notification e-mail message.
  • You deploy Office SharePoint Server 2007 on an x64 platform.If you try to create an Office SharePoint site from a template and the server uses more than 4 GB of memory, sometimes you cannot create the site.
  • You create a custom calculated column on an Office SharePoint list. When the Office SharePoint server starts Full Crawl or when a user opens a document in the list in read-only mode, the value of the custom calculated column is changed.
  • When many sites and pages are created or are edited in an Office SharePoint server, variation propagation jobs fail because of deadlocks on the content database.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You enable the Variationssetting of an Office SharePoint site collection.
    • You add an external link on an Office SharePoint page in the site collection.
    • The URL of the external link contains the URL of the site collection that hosts the variations page.
    • You use Update Variations to propagate the page to the variation target
    In this scenario, the external link is corrupted.
  • A memory leak may cause the application pool to recycle the AppDomain because many instances of the SPHttpApplication reach memory limits.
  • You disable the RSS Feed on the Office SharePoint Web Application. When you browse to a document library, the View RSS Feed option on the Actions menu is not there. However, the RSS Feed button in Internet Explorer is still active.
  • You break the permission inheritance of a sub site in an Office SharePoint site collection.Then, you re-inherit the permission of the sub site and you use incremental content deployment to a destination site.In this case, inheriting permissions in the sub site cannot be incrementally deployed to the destination site.
  • If an e-mail message is forwarded from a Mac Mail client to an Office SharePoint document library that has the e-mail access feature enabled, the attachments in the e-mail message will not be saved in the document library.
  • You enable the Create major and minor (draft) versions optionin an Office SharePoint list and you configure immediate alerts. If a document does not have a major version, a notification is not sent when you delete the document.
  • Incremental content deployment fails if you move Office SharePoint sites to a new location and you delete the earlier parent site.
  • Office SharePoint Search starts to crawl again when a user upgrades an Office SharePoint content database.
  • When you open a Workflow status page, you may receive the following error message if the user who started the Workflow is deleted:
    Unknown Error

  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You import or you export an Office SharePoint list that has many columns and list items that have many versions.
    • You perform full content deployment on an Office SharePoint list that has many columns and list items that have many versions.
    In this scenario, versions of some list items have no metadata after they are imported. This behavior only occurs intermittently.
