Some important notes from the You Had Me At EHLO blog:

  • Since the release of update roll-up 6, we have fixed about 50 issues and wanted to go ahead and provide them to customers.
  • First off, we fixed the SCR issue which have caused everyone some pain and which did not get completed in time to be included in the last update roll-up.
  • We have also fixed two issues which caused intermittent crashes in the IMAP4 service and resulted in event 4999 being logged in the event logs. The following KBs have more information on the scenarios which are fixed:  KB 957504 and KB 960292.
  • Additionally we have also done a design change to address encapsulation and the way it is handled by Exchange Server 2007.
  • And finally, from the installation perspective, a friendly reminder that the roll-up installer will overwrite any OWA script files if required to ensure proper operation of OWA. So if you have customized the logon.aspx page or other similar OWA pages, you will need to redo any customization after installation of the roll-up.

I have just installed it on my lab (Hyper-V) machines and all went well!

Please note that A LOT of users are having problems with this update, including:

- Information Store process not coming automatically up after the installation;

- windows installer interrupted;

- update hung on installation;

- message saying that Windows Installer was missing;

- at the end of the installation process a message popped up informing that the installation process did not succeed because of the fact that Windows Installer could not finish.

So, please test this before you actually apply it to our live servers!
