Issue 3
An incorrect message description is generated when security event 5140 is monitored. For example, the message contains incorrect information for Source Address, Source Port, and Share Name.

Issue 4
An empty target group is created when endpoints are enumerated. Additionally, a message that resembles the following is logged in the event trace log (.etl):

[Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Modules.Apm.ServerDiscovery] [] [Verbose] :TemplateAgentDiscoveryProbeAction.ProcessDataItem{templateagentdiscoveryprobeaction_cs148}( 00000000038E0B6A )Application instances for the next application components were not found in the system:

Issue 5
By default, when a generic performance report is exported, the object information (such as server name, disk label, and so on) is collapsed, and the information is missing.

Issue 6
When you start the network node dashboard on a computer that's running a 32-bit edition of Windows 7 Service Pack 1, CPU usage is near 99 percent, and the console may stop responding.

Issue 7
A user role that is created by using Windows PowerShell on a non-United States locale-based system does not show the Display name and Description fields in the console.

Issue 8
When you create an override on a group or when you use a cmdletadd to a group, you receive the following message:

The query processor ran out of internal resources and could not produce a query plan. This is a rare event and only expected for extremely complex queries or queries that reference a very large number of tables or partitions. Please simplify the query. If you believe you have received this message in error, contact Customer Support Services for more information.

Issue 9
When you select objects on the dashboard, you receive the following error message:

Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Presentation.DataAccess.DataAccessDataNotFoundException: Exception reading objects ---> Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Common.UnknownDatabaseException: The query processor ran out of internal resources and could not produce a query plan. This is a rare event and only expected for extremely complex queries or queries that reference a very large number of tables or partitions.

Issue 10
When network discovery is run, duplicate entries for the same device may be added to the database. This problem occurs when a different device key is found for the same device.

Issue 11
Availability Reports may be displayed as blank because the vStateDailyFull aggregate is returned empty. This problem occurs when the time zone on the data warehouse server is set to UTC+0X:30.

Issue 12
The monitored health state of the System Center Advisor agent is always in a "Warning" state on the Advisor Health State dashboard.

Issue 13
Application Performance Monitoring (APM) is not functional when you upgrade to later versions of Operations Manager.

Issue 14
A website cannot be discovered or monitored on a system that's running Internet Information Services 8 (IIS8) or Internet Information Services 7 (IIS7)if the HTTP binding is missing from the website configuration.

Operations Manager - UNIX and Linux Monitoring (part of KB2880799)

Issue 1
In rare cases, the Monitoringhost.exe process on the Management Server may crash with an access violation 0xc0000005 when log files are monitored on UNIX and Linux computers. When this crash occurs, it causes the managed UNIX or Linux computers to become unmonitored and in a "Critical" state.

Issue 2
When discovering a Linux computer, discovery fails during secure shell (SSH) discovery, or the operating system name and version are determined incorrectly. This issue can occur when multiple *-release files exist in the /etc directory, and one of the files is named os-release. Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

Failed during SSH discovery. Exit code: 2
Standard Output:
Standard Error: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `('


Operations Manager - UNIX and Linux Monitoring (Management Pack update)

Issue 1
A Solaris computer that uses lots of monitored resources such as file systems, physical disks, or network adapters, may run out of file descriptors and cannot monitor the resources. This is the result of the default user limit on Solaris being too low to allocate sufficient file descriptors. The updated agent now overrides the default user limit with a user limit for the agent process of 1,024.

Additionally, the Operations Manager agent's log file (/var/opt/microsoft/scx/log/scx.log) contains errors or warnings that resemble the following:

error = 24 (Too many open files)

Issue 2
A monitored Solaris Zone configured for dynamic CPU allocation with Dynamic Resource Pools may log errors in the agent logs and return incorrect values for Processor performance counters.

This issue applies to any monitored Solaris Zones configured to use Dynamic Resource Pools and a "dedicated-cpu" configuration that involves a range of CPUs.

Issue 3
If Linux Container (cgroup) entries are in /etc/mtab directory, errors are logged when physical disk discovery is enabled, and some physical disks may not be discovered.

Additionally, errors that resemble the following may be logged in the Operations Manager agent's log file (/var/opt/microsoft/scx/log/scx.log):

Warning [scx.core.common.pal.system.disk.diskdepend:418:29352:139684846989056] Did not find key 'cgroup' in proc_disk_stats map, device name was 'cgroup'.

Issue 4
Physical disk configurations that cannot be monitored or failures in physical disk monitoring for UNIX and Linux computers, may cause failures in Logical Disk instances (File Systems) monitoring.

New support included in this update
  • Debian GNU/Linux 7
  • Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) Application servers:
    • IBM WebSphere 8.0
    • IBM Websphere 8.5
    • Oracle Weblogic 12c

Note The JEE application server additions are a separate Management Pack release. However, they depend on updates to the UNIX/Linux agent.

Service Manager (KB2887775)

Issue 1
You receive many 33610 events on various rules and subscriptions. Additionally, the size of the EntityChangeLog table grows because of stalled grooming.

Issue 2
When you accidentally double-click a parent link of an extended Incident class object instead of single-clicking it, the console crashes. If the Incident class object has not been extended, the console does not crash if you double-click the parent link.

Issue 3
Service requests may complete unexpectedly leaving any included activities in a Pending state.

Issue 4
When you have many manual activities assigned to you, the "My Activities" view in the Self-Service Portal may not display the whole list of activities. In some cases, depending on the number of activities that are assigned to you, the "My Activities" view may be displayed without information.

Issue 5
The Exchange Management Pack may always be in a state of "Pending Association" in the management pack sync Job in the console. Additionally, the status of the "Management Pack" node in the Data Warehouse space is "Failed" and may display an Event ID 33410 from the source deployment.

Issue 6
Service requests that are manually canceled during execution are marked incorrectly as "Completed" when they should be marked as "Canceled."

Issue 7
When a new SqlNotificationRequest instance is created, new rows are created in the sys.conversation_endpoints catalog view that has state="CO." Because the SqlNotificationRequest class does not provide any method to close the conversation accordingly, the sys.conversation_endpoints catalog view grows quickly to a very large number.

Issue 8
Service requests that are put on hold are marked incorrectly as "Completed."

Issue 9
Intermittently, file attachments are saved with zero (0) bytes in the database. The File Attachment record shows the correct data size together with file names and so on. But there is no actual data saved to the database.

Issue 10
Service Manager cannot capture the failed status on invoked runbooks. Runbook activities therefore remain "In Progress" even though the invoked runbooks have finished with a "Failed" status.

Issue 11
After Service Manager 2012 is upgraded to Service Pack 1, the Service Dependents view under Business Services is not displayed correctly. Additionally, creating or editing a new Business Service by adding one or more configuration items as "Service Dependents," the Business Service information is not saved.

Issue 12
Other activities in a Service Request may start to run even though the current activity has not finished.

Issue 13
When a reviewer is added to a Review Activity, workflow notifications may not always run. Additionally, you receive an Event ID 33880.

Issue 14
After a self-service portal is upgraded to Service Pack 1, simple lists do not function correctly. For example, a drop-down option that was selected in a simple list is not unselected when another option is selected.

Issue 15
This update enables "Run As" accounts for use with Exchange Connector.

Issue 16
When Service Manager runs a task that was created by using the PowerShell authoring tool, the workflow does not run and you receive the following error message:

System.Exception: Loading managed module type in assembly "Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Modules.PowerShell, Culture="",

Virtual Machine Manager (KB2887779, KB2888944, and KB2888946)

Issue 1
For scale-out file servers, if one of the file server nodes is offline, Virtual Machine Manager cannot discover or register the scale-out file shares.

Issue 2
Virtual Machine Manager cannot deploy port profiles if one of the port profile's maximum size is reached.

Issue 3
The Virtual Machine Manager Service crashes when there is an empty value for the vNICperf counter.

Issue 4
A "RunAs" account cannot be defined by using a service setting and cannot support the validation for network load balancing.

Issue 5
New virtual machines cannot be created from a library virtual machine if that library virtual machine has a snapshot on it.

Issue 6
In some cases, if a user imports a user interface add-in, the user might be unable to access the Virtual Machine Manager Server connection because the PowerShellContext property is null.

Issue 7
System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 Virtual Machine Manager cannot be uninstalled if any previous Update Rollup is applied to the system.

Issue 8
Virtual machine creation fails because the VMNetworkServiceSetting property cannot be set.

Issue 9
A new virtual machine deployment together with multiple pass-through disks may fail because Virtual Machine Manager cannot locate the boot or system volume during the installation of virtual guest services.

Issue 10
The Virtual Machine Manager Service may crash when it tries to discover a virtual machine on specific Storage Area Networks (SAN) storage.

Issue 11
In some cases, Virtual Machine Manager cannot update the VMWare host, the virtual machine or networking information.

Issue 12
Virtual Machine Manager tries to reset a virtual local area network (VLAN) ID when there is no change in the virtual machine network (VM network) or virtual machine subnet (VM subnet) of the network adapter.

Issue 13
When you migrate the storage of an online highly available virtual machine (HAVM), the cluster resource for the storage is not updated.

Issue 14
Virtual Machine Manager may report 0-percent CPU usage or 0 kilobytes (KB) available memory on the Hyper-V host.

Issue 15
Failed or canceled cross cluster migration does not clean the highly available virtual machine (HAVM) resource that is left in the target cluster.

Issue 16
The Virtual Machine Manager Service may crash because of Foreign Key violations in the tbl_ADHC_FibrePort table. This can be caused by a port that is deleted by Virtual Machine Manager before mapping is added.

Issue 17
Forecasting reports do not work if you use Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) 2012.

Issue 18
A Server Message Block (SMB) protocol dialect shows 30,000 network-attached storage devices when Virtual Machine Manager is run on a German locale.

Issue 19
You try to create a virtual machine by using a virtual machine template. When you use some specific virtual hard disks (VHDs), the virtual machine creation may fail at the "Install VM component" step.

Issue 20
VMware templates imported from the Virtual Machine Manager 2012 Service Pack 1 console that are deleted from the Virtual Machine Manager console are put in the "Missing" state.

Issue 21
When a Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) channel is used after having aborted, the Virtual Machine Manager Service may ultimately crash.

Issue 22
You migrate a virtual machine with live migration. If you then migrate the virtual machine with stopped migration (for example, the source location does not exist in the target host), the migration fails. Additionally, you receive the following error message:

Failed to change smart paging store for virtual machine.

Issue 23
You change the Preferred Owners and the Possible Owners settings of a highly available virtual machine (HAVM). When you migrate the HAVM from a cluster to a stand-alone host, the Virtual Machine Manager Service may crash.

Issue 24
When you run a physical-to-virtual (P2V) conversion or a virtual to virtual conversion (V2V), the conversion wizard should use the virtual machine network (VM network) parameter in the network adapter cmdlet instead of the logical network parameter.

Issue 25
When unmasking a logical unit number (LUN) to the host, you may receive the following error message:

Fibre Channel - SM_RC_NOT_ENOUGH_SPACE

Issue 26
You receive an error when you add a storage pool to Virtual Machine Manager. This problem occurs if the logical unit number (LUN) of the storage pool is part of multiple storage pools.

Issue 27
After you install the Microsoft .NET Framework security update 2840632, some of user interface (UI) controls may not work.

Issue 28
Servicing services that were deployed before Update Rollup 3 for System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 was applied might fail after Update Rollup 3 is applied.
