INTRODUCTION

This article describes the Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 issues that are fixed in the hotfix package that is dated May 23, 2006.

Issues that the hotfix package fixes

This hotfix package fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • Garbage characters appear at the start of display names of certain users in Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 when Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 is deployed in an Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) environment

    Consider the following scenario. You deploy Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 in an ADFS environment. After a user who is a member of the ADFS account partner accesses Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, garbage characters appear at the start of the display name of that user in Windows SharePoint Services 2.0fter a user adds new content such as a list item to Windows SharePoint Services 2.0. For example, the display name of a user may resemble the following:
    %$#*\UserName@DomainName.com
  • Data in a document is removed after you check in a document to a document library

    You check out a document that is stored in a folder in a document library. Then you check in the document. When you view the document, the document no longer contains any data. The size of the document is changed to 0 (zero) bytes.

    This issue occurs if the name of the folder that stores the document is changed when the document is checked out.
  • A site owner receives an "HTTP 404 - File not found" error message when the site owner clicks a URL in an e-mail message that is generated by the Site Use Confirmation and Auto-Deletion feature

    Consider the following scenario. You install Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 in scalable hosting mode. You configure the Site Use Confirmation and Auto-Deletion feature in Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to automatically send e-mail messages to site owners to confirm whether Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 sites are still being used. A site owner uses Microsoft Outlook Web Access to open the e-mail message. When the site owner clicks a URL in the e-mail message, the site owner receives an error message that resembles the following:
    HTTP 404 - File not found
    This issue occurs because the URLs in the e-mail message contain an additional forward slash (/) character.
