Microsoft ha qualche tempo fa annunciato un Cumulative Update (CU) previsto per giugno 2010, attualmente non rilasciato (sul sito si evidenzia il delay), ma nel frattempo a reso disponibili le prime hotfix, che verosimilmente comporranno il CU.

Per prima cosa è importante -soprattutto se il sistema SharePoint è già in produzione- studiare le nuove modalità di update di SharePoint 2010:

Quindi occorre fare richiesta e scaricare le hotfix:

  • SharePoint Foundation 2010 hotfix package (STS-x-none.msp), KB2028568
    Patch for SharePoint Foundation
    Ecco i problemi che risolve:
    • Consider the following scenario:
      • You define a big sandboxed solution that contains some list templates.
      • You define a web template that uses the list templates.
      • You enable this sandboxed solution and create a webpage by using the web template.

      In this scenario, memory of the size of the sandboxed solution is leaked for each list that is created. Therefore, the W3wp.exe process very quickly stops responding.

    • On a computer that has in Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 installed, the memory usage increases together with the caching of certain objects linearly.
    • After you upgrade a content database, the search engine crawls everything in that web application again.
    • When you click Check Permissions for a security group, you receive the following error message if the Claims authentication is configured:
      System.InvalidOperationException: Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object. at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPUserToken.GetClaimsUserLoginName()
    • Consider the following scenario:
      • You set SPField to Hidden at the content type level.
      • You move an item between folders in the same list. This item is associated with a content type.

      In this scenario, the associated SPField properties are imported at the list level instead of the content type level during the Content Migration API (also known as PRIME) import phase.

    • The variation system does not remove the web part from target sites when the last web part is removed from the source page.
    • An incremental content deployment fails if websites are moved to a new location and if the earlier parent site is deleted.
    • An incorrect order of the data in the proc_DeplGetListItemVersionsFields stored procedure causes data loss for versions such as list item versions during export, import, or content deployment.
    • When you rename a folder in the MSW website that has many backlinks, downtime occurs for the MSW website.
    • The Microsoft Office SharePoint Server administrators notice that the worker processes fail after a user performs an authoring operation. Additionally, the in-process requests are lost, and the integrity of the worker processes is potentially compromised for all the users of that web application.
    • You cannot connect to a site through the Outlook Social Connector or another Windows-based client if the website uses the Windows-based Claims authentication.
    • The user name that is visible and the internal unique identifier do not match if you use a SharePoint Foundation 2010-based Claims authentication. For example, LiveID deployments must use a user principal name (UPN) for the logon name and use a Unique ID (PUID) as the unique identifier for some Personally Identifiable Information (PII) reasons.
    • A folder content type loses a column in a website that is created from a customized website template.
    • If a list item or a document library item has both approved and draft versions, the search crawl query cannot find the item. Therefore, the query builder cannot return the item. For example, a document has an approved checked-in version. However, the document cannot be searched if the document is checked out or if the document is pending approval.
  • SharePoint Server 2010 hotfix package (Osrchwfe-x-none.msp, Pplwfe-x-none.msp, Spswfe-x-none.msp), KB983497
    Patch for SharePoint Server
    Ecco i problemi che risolve:
    • After you move a site to a new content database, the Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 sync does not work on that site.
    • If you change your information, a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 site still displays your old information after you log on to that site.
    • The Welcome Name field is not synced with a user profile as expected if the user obtains access to a site through an Active Directory group. This issue occurs even if the administrator uses the synchronization job to sync profile details for inactive site users.
    • If a user profile synchronization service uses a named SQL instance, the service no longer starts after you provision the service. For example, this issue ocurrs when you stop the service.
    • You cannot obtain most activity properties from the ActivityManager object without obtaining the LinkList property first.
    • When you add a Windows user to SharePoint Server 2010, the user's properties are not populated from Active Directory. Additionally, the user name is the logon name.
    • When a SharePoint Server 2010 farm administrator runs the User Profile Change Cleanup job, the performance of the SQL server that hosts the profile database is poor.
    • Profile import is slow when a group is deleted. Additionally, the deletion can take hours in some cases. If the group deletion is completed in a transaction, many other database requests are also blocked.
    • If all members are removed from a group but the group itself is not deleted, the memberships are not removed.
    • When you create a Business Data Catalog (BDC) sync connection, you receive the following error message:
      An error has occurred while accessing the SQL Server database or the SharePoint Server Search service. If this is the first time you have seen this message, try again later. If this problem persists, contact your administrator.
    • When you run a BDC import, the import data file is created by running queries on the SharePoint Server 2010 profile store and the BDC back-end store. If an error or exception occurs, all the data is lost.
    • If a customer's Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server does not respond within 30 seconds, there is no way for the administrator to create a profile import connection.
    • If there are more than 1,000 tag events or rating events during a gatherer run, only the first 1,000 events are processed.
    • You clear an activity that you follow in your edit profile screen. However, this action cannot be undone.
    • The "people search" result relevance is poor for organization type queries.
    • If there are more than 1,000 events during a gatherer run and these events do not fall under certain criteria, only the first 1,000 events are processed correctly. Duplicate events may be generated for the rest of the events.
    • When a taxonomy service has a large change log, an offline term store that has never been online cannot recover itself online.
    • 2201116  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2201116/ ) A deadlock occurs in SQL Server when you import many users and groups in Office SharePoint Server 2010
  • SharePoint Server 2010 hotfix package (Filterpack-x-none.msp), KB2124512
    Patch for SharePoint Server search filters
    Ecco i problemi che risolve:
    • You crawl a Microsoft Office Excel 2003 document that contains double-byte character set (DBCS) characters, such as phonetic data, in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010. In this situation, several unspecified strings are not indexed. Therefore, you cannot search these strings.
    • You have an Office Excel 2003 document. The header or the footer contains DBCS characters. When you crawl the document in SharePoint Server 2010, the strings in the header, the footer, and certain numeric values are not indexed.
  • SharePoint Server 2010 hotfix package (osrchmui-ja-jp.msp, osrchmui-ko-kr.msp, osrchmui-zh-cn.msp, osrchmui-zh-tw.msp), KB2182938
    (Japanese, Chinese and Korean SharePoint Server patch only)
    Ecco i problemi che risolve:
    • When you run a search for the compressed files (.zip) in the East Asian versions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, you receive incorrect results. This problem occurs because zip is translated as postal code incorrectly in the search interface of the East Asian versions of SharePoint Server 2010.
  • Search Server 2010 hotfix package (Word-x-none.msp), KB983319
    Search Server patch
    Ecco i problemi che risolve:
    • When you perform a search on a site that is running Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, you receive the following error message:
      Internal server error exception

      This problem occurs when you view the SharePoint site by using a browser that does not have the default language specified.

    • You change the preferred name of a user in the user profile on a site that is running SharePoint Server 2010. Then, when you search for the user by using the preferred name, no result is returned.
  • SharePoint Server 2010 hotfix, KB2281364
    KB not live yet but you can request hotfix here.

Suggerisco di aggiorna la vostra infrastruttura se ricadete in uno o più dei problemi risolti dalle fix, oppure di aspettare il rilascio della Cumulative Update, che vi consentirà un unico download/fix. Evidenzio l'importanza della KB983497 per chi oggi soffre dei problemi sugli User Profiles.

Al termine degli updates il sistema incrementerà la versione, passando alla build numero 14.0000.5114.5003.
