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

Hi Gotthard,

I've got it installed over the weekend and all is good.

Please do post back your experience.

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

Re: Expieriences with 2014 R2 SP1?

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.

Re: Expieriences with 2014 R2 SP1?

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?

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

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

Re: Expieriences with 2014 R2 SP1?

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.

Hi

The database version does not change with a support pack so this is not a bug.

i cannot confirm the shared folder envelope bug.

silent setup somehow runs more smoothly when you change the version line in the setup.cfg from 14.2 back to 14.0
