Update Rollup 2 for Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard is now available.

This update rollup contains all the updates that were included in the previous update rollup. Additionally, this update fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article.


Issue 1


Consider the following scenario:


  • You enable the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) mode on a computer that is running Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard.
  • You configure a recurring backup task on the computer.
  • You try to perform a bare-metal recovery by using the Recovery Console.

In this scenario, the Bare Metal Recovery feature does not find any valid backups.

Note This update does not change any existing backups on the computer. Therefore, to resolve this issue, you must configure the backup task again after you install this update.


Issue 2


Assume that you try to log on to the Remote Web Access webpage of Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard by using a user principal name (UPN). In this situation, you receive the following error message:


Server Error in ‘/Remote’ Application.

The domain is null or empty
Parameter name: domain

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.ArgumentException: The domain is null or empty
Parameter name: domain

Issue 3


Assume that you try to connect to a client computer that is joined to a Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard-based network domain by using the Remote Web Access webpage. However, if your username contains Unicode characters, the username is displayed incorrectly when you are prompted to enter your user credentials. For example, this issue occurs if your username contains a Chinese character.


Issue 4


You cannot download files from the Remote Web Access webpage if you log on to the webpage by using a slate device. For example, you cannot download files from the Remote Web Access webpage to an Apple iPad.


Issue 5


Assume that you migrate from Windows Small Business Server 2003 Standard to Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard. In this situation, you cannot log on to the Remote Web Access webpage by using a nonadministrative account. When this issue occurs, you receive the following error message:


Server Error in ‘/Remote’ Application.

An error (87) occurred while enumerating the groups. The group’s SID could not be resolved.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.PrincipalOperationException: An error (87) occurred while enumerating the groups. The group’s SID could not be resolved.

    For Issue 1, they are talking about enabling UEFI *before* installing Windows, right? Cuz there is no way to enable it later (the boot drive for UEFI must be GPT, whereas BIOS mode requires an MBR disk and you can’t change it without erasing the disk – at least, not using diskpart anyway). It seems like any and all current versions of Windows just have far too many UEFI stability issues and gotchas to make it worthwhile at the moment. Windows 8 should hopefully flip this since it’ll require logo’d systems to be native UEFI.

    Correct. It was found by someone enabling it before they installed SBS. They found that it would backup fine with native windows backup but not with the SBS wizard.
