Update Rollup 3 for Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard is now available.

This update rollup contains all the updates that were included in the previous update rollup. Additionally, this update fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article.

Issue 1

You receive a warning message when you try to deploy a client computer that is running Windows 8 in Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard.

Note This issue occurs because Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard does not support client computers that are running Windows 8. However, after you apply this update, you do not receive a warning message.

Issue 2

After you run client deployment tools in Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard, Windows Store apps do not work on client computers that are running Windows 8.

Note The update described in this article adds support for user profile migration.

Issue 3

You cannot connect remotely to a Windows 8 client computer from the Remote Web Access webpage.

Issue 4

After you install the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 and then install the .NET Framework 4, you do not receive email notifications.

Issue 5

You cannot download a file or a folder whose path contains non-ASCII characters on the Remote Web Access webpage. 

Issue 6

Assume that the name of a user, group, or organizational unit (OU) contains a slash (/). When the user, group, or OU is a member of a group that is traversed during the Remote Web Access logon process, the user, group, or OU cannot log on to the Remote Web Access webpage.

Issue 7

When Windows Small Business Server uses the default configuration, Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) cannot synchronize Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) with Windows Small Business Server. Additionally, new updates for BPA are displayed only in the optional updates menu. 

Note After you install the update that is described in this article, the following changes occur in BPA and WSUS:

  • Update rollups for BPA are auto-approved as update rollups for Windows Small Business Server.

  • The "tools" category is added to WSUS.

  • The BPA installation is approved and is displayed in the "Updates with Microsoft Software License Terms that are pending approval" group.
