  • Context menus in the console do not display where they are expected. Instead, they appear at the upper-right corner of the window.
  • Work item scroll bars in the preview pane do not display correctly when you run in full-screen mode. When they do appear, they are inactive and cannot be used.
  • Forms and wizards are not always displayed correctly. Only the left navigation pane is displayed, and the right side area is blank.

Issue 27
The Service Manager console shows a generic SQL exception instead of the detailed Data Collision exception when you run in a non-English environment.

Issue 28
When you are grooming the database, the p_DataPurging stored procedure does not finish, and SQL registers an error that occurs with event ID 8623. The error states that the query processor ran out of internal resources and could not produce a query plan.

Issue 29
Adding multiple “RegEx”es to a group definition causes a SQL error when you add or execute the group.

Issue 30
The Configuration Manager connector does not handle updates to DeviceHasSoftwareItemInstalled correctly. This causes a divergence in the data that is synchronized between the Service Manager and Configuration Manager databases.
