This article describes update KB3141515 for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2016, which was released on February 14, 2017. This update has a prerequisite.

This public update delivers the first feature pack (Feature Pack 1) for SharePoint Server 2016 that contains the following features:

  • Administrative Actions Logging

  • MinRole enhancements

  • SharePoint Custom Tiles

  • Hybrid Auditing (preview)

  • Hybrid Taxonomy

  • OneDrive API for SharePoint on-premises

  • OneDrive for Business modern experience (available to Software Assurance customers)

The OneDrive for Business modern user experience requires an active Software Assurance contract at the time that it is enabled, either by installation of the public update or by manual enablement. If you don't have an active Software Assurance contract at the time of enablement, you must turn the OneDrive for Business modern user experience off. See New features included in the November 2016 Public Update for SharePoint Server 2016 (Feature Pack 1) for more information.

Improvements and fixes

  • This update deletes the Napa install option from SharePoint Server 2016.

  • This update changes how IIS application pools are stopped and restarted during SharePoint patching to provide better patching performance.

  • This update fixes the following issues in SharePoint Server 2016:

    • You don‘t receive the Check Out & Open prompt when you open documents in SharePoint Server 2016 in Adobe Acrobat DC.

    • When you set up an External Identity Manager, the group membership isn't synchronized as usual. This update now includes a new timer job "Updates Profile Memberships and Relationships Job" that runs by default every five minutes to update the changes after an import.

    • After you join a new server to a farm, the new farm can't detect the side-by-side farm settings and it won't copy the side-by-side files. This issue causes incorrect rendering of some webpages.

  • This update fixes the following issues in Project Server 2016:

    • Timephased data on material resources may be incorrect if updates come from PWA. For example, you have a material contour that resembles the following:10,10,10,10In PWA, the team member reports the following:5,10When the update is displayed in Project Professional, the material contour resembles the following:5,10,25Instead, the contour should be like:5,10,12.5,12.5

    • After you edit a project in PWA, formulas that rely on the Now() function and the [Current Date] property aren't calculated.
