Improvements and fixes

This CU brings a lot of SharePoint & Project Server fixes, here is the list of fixes published by MSFT.

Project Server 2016

  1. Some database views in the reporting schema such as the pjrep.MSP_EpmProject_UserView are missing and they can't be recreated.
  2. Spelling check does not provide suggestions or correct misspelled words in a calendar app.
  3. You can't add dimensions or measures to an OLAP cube definition if there is more than one PWA instance defined in a given web app.
  4. OLAP cube builds times don't follow the requested pattern. For example, if you set a cube to be built hourly, there are some hours where the cube isn't built.
  5. If you apply a filter that uses the Does not Contain filter test to a project that you are editing in Project Web App, tasks that have the filtered characters are still displayed.
  6. Administrative tasks should not be auto-approved if the timesheet owner has the Adjust Timesheet permission.
  7. On the OLAP Database Management page, you can't set a new default OLAP database, or enable or disable existing databases if you have more than one PWA instance on the server.

SharePoint Server 2016


  1. Previously, files are copied side-by-side if the EnableSideBySide setting is true. Now, files are copied side-by-side regardless of the EnableSideBySide setting.
  2. An issue that occurs when you pipe Set-SPContentDatabase with Get-SPContentDatabase.
  3. Adds more logs to diagnose the issue in which a farm server turns to the Upgrade Required status after a successful run of psconfig with the No Action Required server status.
  4. It's difficult for a screen reader to understand the structure between sections on a discussion board. This is because there is only one heading. This update adds h2 and h3 labels to the discussion board for better screen reading.

Language-Dependent Fix

  1. Adds translations for several group membership strings in multiple languages.
  2. Adds error messages for the exceptions of taxonomy replication and migration.
  3. Updates the translations to make sure that the meaning of the word "Drivers" is correct in Project Server.
