Cumulative Update 3 (CU3) for Project Financial Server 2010

Written by Alexandra Schiopu on July 28th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

Cumulative Update 3 for Project Financial Server 2010 provides the following enhancements in response to customer and partner feedback:

List of issues addressed by CU3:

  • Setup, installation, provisioning
    • The installer can be executed in silent mode, with the following command line parameters:
      • /s: starts the setup in silent mode,
      • /i: installs the package,
      • /u: uninstalls the package, and returns the following codes: 0 – success, 1 – error (invalid parameter) and 2 (other error)
      • /pk:<product key>: sets the product key
      • /ak:<activation key>: sets the activation key
  • Workflow
    • Better error handling for the case where the SMTP server is not properly configured
    • Better handling of the case where some approval tasks are deleted and the workflow could end up in the next stage
    • Better race condition handling on workflow submission to next stage that could lead to the following message: “An error has occurred in the workflow. Contact your system administrator”
    • Fixed incorrect logging of errors under additional workflow data when the web part used for entering minimum/maximum amount validation was in admin or view mode
    • Improvements to sending notifications to a group when a project is submitted to the next stage
  • Web Parts
    • Users without “Save project to Project Server” category permission are able to see all project’s web parts in read only mode
    • Fixed incorrect error reporting on submission of an Actuals period following the deletion of the approval group
  • Logging
    • Fixed the Unknown logging category under the Diagnostic Logging page in SharePoint Central Administration
    • The default logging is now information or medium for all categories. It was set toverbose for Queue and Setup.
  • Administration
    • An administrator account can be specifically defined to be used for calls to the PSI instead of the default site owner. A new people picker field has been added to the Edit Project Financial Server extension page, similar to the one used by Project Server for the administrative account
    • The product version was reporting an incorrect value when having other UMT products installed on the same machine
    • The total number of CALs is automatically assigned to the first created PFS instance in multi-tenant environments
    • Improved error reporting in the Manage License page if the PWA site is in an inconsistent state
  • Other fixes
    • Project Server 2010 SP1 support: prior to CU3, a JS error is displayed for certain project-level operations such as Save or Submit due to an infrastructure change introduced by Project Server 2010 SP1
    • Fixed minor typos
    • For a certain actual period, in Review Actuals only cost centers with values on this period are displayed in bold
    • Cost Categories no longer disappear when change user locale
    • Fixed digital signature envelope for UMT.CostModule.Upgrade.dll
  • Cube
    • Fixed difference in the values stored by the Project Financial Server and Project Server cubes for fractional numeric fields due to unnecessary rounding
