Expieriences with 2014 R2 SP1?

Hi,

accidentally I found the SP1 is in the wild

Anyone here already installed it? I just upgraded my primary domain from
HP1 to SP1 without issues during this procedure.
Other errors usually occuring 24 hours later...

I will report here in a week or so, when all domains and po´s (and...
are updated

    I upgraded my servers this past Monday and have upgraded 3 clients so
    far for testing before pushing it out company wide. No show stoppers,
    but I have run into two minor bugs.
    * Shared folders display an "envelope icon" next to them if you are
    not the owner, regardless of whether there is any unread messages or
    not. Support confirmed this is a bug.
    * Copy/paste a recipient from one email message to another throws up a
    message on send and is undeliverable. Support confirmed this is a
    bug.
    Minor, but annoying, so I am hoping they get fixed soon.
    Ken

  • Servers updates went smoothly
    But for the client GW 2014 R2 SP1, multi we have 2 open issues :
    - auto-update feature fails with missing language dll's errors. After un-install and re-install Client is OK
    - right click on "personnalized" welcome panel crashes the client. After resetting to default the user welcome panel, it works.
  • Hi,

    the delivered script for client install (install.bat) runs with
    parameter /unattended not really unattended. Visual c 2013 x86 pops up
    with dialog repair/uninstall/close

    There are two lines

    set GW_OPTS_VCRUNTIMES_2013=/qn

    had to change to

    set GW_OPTS_VCRUNTIMES_2013=/quiet /repair /norestart

    NTS told me the bug is fixed in all FTF after july 14th.

  • Ken,

    I can confirm the Shared folder/envelope bug here. Already opened a SR. Do you have any news?

    Other hopefully cosmetical bug: the Database Version from MTA and POA is still at 1420. Shouldn't it be on 1421?
  • "NTS told me the bug is fixed in all FTF after july 14th."

    That's good to hear. Hopefully FTF fixes the shared folder bug too. :p

    Nothing yet. I'm hoping an FTF is in the works.

  • Just an FYI for anyone interested. GW client install with ZCM works
    great. Steps are in the docs. I've been using it since I first
    upgraded to 2014. It takes me maybe 15 minutes to create the ZCM
    bundle and then I just set an install time. Makes GW client installs
    very easy.
