In this article, we will list all the Issues which are fixed in this March 2016 CU. This Month MSFT released two versions of it. One includes the Fixes for LPs and others don't include the Fix for LPs,

Improvements and fixes:

This CU brings  couple of Project Sever Fixes and also bring the fixes for languages. Here is the list of fix published by MSFT

Project Server 2016:

  1. Adds the Web Service Definition Language (WSDL) proxy files for Project Server 2016.
  2. Adds translations for several group membership strings in multiple languages.
  3. Adds error messages for the exceptions of taxonomy replication and migration.
  4. Some database views in the reporting schema such as the pjrep.MSP_EpmProject_UserView are missing and they can't be recreated.
  5. Spelling check does not provide suggestions or correct misspelled words in a calendar app.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Administrative tasks should not be auto approved if the timesheet owner has the Adjust Timesheet permission.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. An issue that occurs when you pipe Set-SPContentDatabase with Get-SPContentDatabase.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.

SharePoint Server 2016:

  1. No issue fixed for SharePoint directly.

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.


As we know, this Month MSFT Release 2 CUs ( one Include the LPs and Other No LP).


  • To apply this update, you must have Microsoft SharePoint Server 2016 RTM installed.

Restart information:

  • If during the Installation of the Updates certain Component of the SharePoint is running then it will ask you for the Restart the server. So its depend upon your server.

Config Wizard:

  • You have to run the SharePoint Product and Configuration Wizard on all servers in the farm after the binaries installation. It should on one server at given time (this is not parallel activity). There is no such requirement like on which server we should ran the 1st, But as per my experience i would prefer to run it on Central admin server first followed by renaming servers.

Schema Change:

  • This update will update the database schema so that's mean schema will and Patch Version will be change.You will see the same Patch number and Build Number.

Patch Number:

  • 16.0.4510.1001

Special Notes:

  • This CU Contains the Feature Pack 1 in it, if you are applying this CU on the server which is prior to November 2016 CU level then you will see the feature pack 1 information in it. 
  • If you are updating a farm which is prior to February 2017 CU level then you will see the following issue.A problem in the installation of February 2017 CU prevents this timerjob from being installed correctly and this will lead to the following message in the health analyzer:
    “Verify that the critical User Profile Application and User Profile Proxy Application timer jobs are available and have not been mistakenly deleted.”To fix this use the following steps:
    • On the Central Administration website, click Monitoring.
    • On the Monitoring page, in the Health Analyzer section, click Review rule definitions.
    • On the Health Analyzer Rule Definitions – All Rules page, in the Category: Configuration section, click the name of the rule.
    • In the Health Analyzer Rule Definitions dialog box, click Edit Item.
    • Select the Repair Automatically check box, and then click Save.
