List of issues fixed

This service pack fixes the following issues that are not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • An exception is thrown when you deploy a Forefront Client Security (FCS) policy on Windows Server 2008

    When you deploy an FCS policy to an organizational unit (OU), an exception is thrown, and the policy is not deployed.
  • When you deploy an FCS policy on Windows Server 2008 to the Users tab, an exception is thrown

    The Browse dialog box for a Group Policy object (GPO) on Windows Server 2008 includes a Users tab. This tab does not exist in Windows Server 2003. If you deploy an FCS policy to a user or to a group, an exception is thrown.
  • FCS policies that are deployed to an existing GPO are tied to a specific domain controller (DC)

    FCS policies that are deployed to an existing GPO are tied to a specific DC. If the DC is decommissioned, you cannot change or undeploy that policy.
