SharePoint and fun with SP1

May 1, 2012 3 comments

Recently I was asked to take a look at a SharePoint 2010 system that was having a few problems. Looking at the patching status it was still running SPS2010 RTM, so the 1st job was to at least get SP1 installed, then the latest CUs on top, and so the fun started…

I downloaded the appropriate service packs, and kicked off the foundation SP1 install and got the following.

The error appeared straight away, no upgrade log was written, nothing in the ULS logs and nothing in the Windows logs.

I used /? switch on the end on the Service Pack file to get the usage options.

 

sharepointfoundation2010sp1-kb2460058-x64-fullfile-en-us.exe /?

Next I used the log option to have a look at the output of the Service Pack install

C:\patches>sharepointfoundation2010sp1-kb2460058-x64-fullfile-en-us.exe /log:c:\
patches\sp.log

 

There is quite a lot of information written to the log file, but nothing that pointed to the reason of the failure, next was to extract the patch and see which patch file was causing a problem.

C:\patches>sharepointfoundation2010sp1-kb2460058-x64-fullfile-en-us.exe /extract
:c:\patches\sp

the c:\patches\sp folder now contains the extracted patch files and the EULA text file

Running the patch wsssp1-x-none.msp was giving the following error.

So the Service Pack wouldn’t install because one of the patches inside it didn’t realise that SharePoint was installed, interesting as the error I would have expected to if SharePoint wasn’t installed would have been this one…

I tried running the Config Wizard, but that didn’t help either, after checking with one of colleagues who knows all about packaging software he thought that the failing msp was probably looking for a specific registry key or value.

So I decided to try running a repair from Control Panel, to reset all the original Server settings while not effecting the content or configuration databases (this process ran for quite a long while)

Then I re-ran the Config Wizard, (which now asked about removing the server from the farm).

Finally, after all this the Service Pack would finally install.

Another day done in the world of SharePoint.

Security Validation Issue – Form Services issue with SP1+June 2011 CU (Release 2) #in #SP2010 #SharePoint #MSProject #ProjectServer

July 20, 2011 10 comments

We are testing Service Pack 1 heavily in my project that I have talked about on this blog many times.

One of the features of our implementation is a number of developed InfoPath forms.  We found one issue previously that required a hotfix and it looks like SP1 and June 2011 CU (Release 2) has introduced another.

My colleague Paul Busby has mentioned it here:

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010customization/thread/6d5ffcb6-7563-4234-9282-e767b56b97b2

and another user has also confirmed the issue.

I shall be sending the details below to Microsoft through our partner support and hopefully we can get a resolution.

 

Scenario:

  • Form Services
  • Administrator Approved Form
  • Server Version: 14.0.6106.5002 (Office 2010 SP1 + June 2011 CU – Release 2)
  • Client Version: 14.0.6023.1000 (Office 2010 SP1)
  • NB: June 2011 Cumulative Update does not include updates for InfoPath 2010
  • Microsoft June 2011 Cumulative Update for Office 2010 Client Applications – KB2259686: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2259686/en-us

The form has two views:

  • View one has a people picker
  • View two is blank

The form is uploaded via Central Administration and activated to a site collection

A form library is created and the associated content type is attached

Upon creating a new form, the form loads

Screenshot 1

When the user switches views in the form, a Security Validation Error occurs:

Screenshot 2

Further Details:

  • We have discovered that it appears to happen when switching to or from a view that contains a people picker field.
  • Turning off security validation, allows the form to continue to work, but this is not something we want to go live with
  • This issue has been found on a client DEV and TEST environment as well as a newly installed RTM machine upgraded to SP1 + June 2011 CU Release 2
