Issue 7

The Data Protection Manager console may require more time to open than expected when many client systems are being protected.

 

This Update rollup is suppose to bring Exchange Connector for Service Manager but I do not see it mentioned in the KB article. May be it will be released as an additional download like the Cloud Process Pack and GRC Pack.

Another strange thing in this update is that addresses issues in App Controller Setup. Does this mean that new full installation of SC 2012 SP1 with UR2 will be published on MSDN, Technet and VL sites?

I will update this article if more information appears.

Full KB article is located here. Read the installation instructions before applying.
