Released: Update Rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 2
Exchange CXP team has released Update Rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2007 SP2 (KB979784) to the download center. The release of the rollup via Microsoft Update will happen on March 23rd.
KB 979784 lists the fixes included in this rollup. Here are some highlights of the product improvements and critical bug fixes:
- We responded to some of the great feedback we get from the community including two issues posted to the Exchange TechNet Forums about our last rollup: Outlook web access signatures lose their blank line above the signature & Item Retention Period "TimeSpan overflowed because the duration is too long."
- A couple of painful deadlock issues are now prevented as noted in KBs 978517 and 979219.
- Two Store crash scenarios were repaired; see KBs 978528 & 979520.
- Several improvements for meeting request issues are also included in this rollup.
For those of you running Forefront, be sure you perform these important steps from the command line in the Forefront directory before and after this rollup's installation process. Without these steps, Exchange services for Information Store and Transport will not start back up. You will need to disable ForeFront via "fscutility /disable" before installing the patch and then re-enable after the patch by running "fscutility /enable" to start it up again post installation.
Again, you can read the list of issues fixed up in KB979784.
