Known issues when you install Office 2010 SP1 and SharePoint 2010 SP1

Found this KB should be easily available for all my users .

This article lists the known issues and behavior changes that you may experience when you install Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010, and Office server products.


The following are issues that you may experience when you install these service packs:
  • SharePoint Server 2010 SP1 has an issue that causes workflow tasks to become locked and unrecoverable, as follows. Assume that you have a running out-of-box (OOB) workflow task (for example, an "Approval – SharePoint 2010," "Collect Feedback – SharePoint 2010," or "Publishing Approval" task). When a task assignee edits the workflow task (for example, by approving or rejecting the trial), the task is locked and cannot be recovered. For more information about this issue, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    2737435 "In Progress" Workflow tasks are locked after updating to SharePoint 2010 SP1

    To resolve this issue, install the hotfixes that are provided in the following articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    2687614 Description of the SharePoint Server 2010 hotfix package (Coreservermui-xx-xx.msp): October 30, 2012
    2687557 Description of the SharePoint Foundation 2010 hotfix package (Wss-x-none.msp): October 30, 2012
    Note You must install these hotfixes after you install SharePoint 2010 SP1.
  • Before you install the SP1 packages, make sure that you have sufficient disk space. For caching, the packages may require up to four times their file size in remaining disk space during installation.
  • You must restart the computer at the end of the installation process.
  • If Office Web Apps will be used in a mixed version environment, where Office Web Apps has SP1-or-later applied while SharePoint Server 2010 remains on the RTM version, you must install the following two updates before you install SP1 for Office Web Apps:
    • 2510639 Description of the SharePoint Server 2010 update: April 12, 2011
    • 2510648 Description of the Office Web Apps update: April 12, 2011
  • Install the service packs in the following order on every server in the farm:
    1. Service Pack 1 for SharePoint Foundation 2010
    2. Service Pack 1 for SharePoint Foundation 2010 Language Pack (if applicable)
    3. Service Pack 1 for SharePoint Server 2010
    4. Service Pack 1 for SharePoint Server 2010 Language Pack (if applicable)
  • After you install Service Pack 1 you must run the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard or the psconfig –cmd upgrade –inplace b2b -wait command one time on every server in the farm. This step updates the farm to the latest version and is required in order to have full SharePoint functionality. If you do not run the wizard, the farm will run with reduced capacity. For example, Search will not be able to index content.
  • You must restart the User Profile Synchronization service after installing Service Pack 1. For more information about how to start the service, see the "Start the User Profile Synchronization service" section of the following Microsoft website:
  • After SharePoint Server 2010 SP1 is installed, the Workflow feature is disabled when a new site collection is created. To use the Workflow feature in a new site collection, enable it in the Site Collection Settings page.
  • After you install SharePoint Foundation 2010 SP1 and SharePoint Server 2010 SP1, we strongly recommend that you install the install the June 2011 Cumulative Update refresh package. The June Cumulative Update includes several important security and bug fixes that are not included Service Pack 1. For more information about these updates, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    2536601 Description of the SharePoint Foundation 2010 cumulative update package (SharePoint Foundation server-package): June 30, 2011

    2536599 Description of the SharePoint Server 2010 cumulative update package (SharePoint server-package): June 30, 2011

SharePoint Foundation 2013 known issues

Recommended configuration for crawling large hosts

When defining content sources to crawl in SharePoint Search, the maximum number of threads that can simultaneously make requests to a host is set to 12 by default OOB. This value affects the rate of content discovery from the host. For all small and medium sized hosts (<10M), this thread count is sufficient. But if the target host is >10M, we recommend you increase the thread count.

Workaround For large hosts (>10M items), we recommend you set the number of threads to 32 or more. This is over-and-above the recommendation to have dedicated crawl targets that helps manage load on front ends efficiently without impacting performance observed by users of that host.

Some "15" or "2010" strings not updated to “2013” in SharePoint 2013 Preview Management Pack

Some "15" or "2010" strings aren’t updated to "2013" or "2013 Preview" in the User Guide, file names, and some user interface strings of SharePoint 2013 Preview Management Pack.

Workaround No workaround is available.

Management Shell shows an error when open
When you open the Management Shell, you see the following error message:

Could not create a CmdletConfiguration for CmdletName Start-BulkOperation, CmldetClass, CmdletHelpFile C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\CONFIG\PowerShell\Help\Microsoft.Office.Education.Institution.dll-Help.xml.

Cannot process argument because the value of argument"implementingType" is null. Change the value of argument "implementingType" to a non-null value.

Workaround This error doesn't block any scenarios. The shell works for all cmdlets.

PerformancePoint items missing from BI Center left navigation pane

If you create a new BI site collection, you'll see it with navigation links missing.

Workaround To see the links, go to Site Settings > Navigation and change the site to use structural navigation.
