Release Notes for Service Provider Foundation for System Center 2012 R2

 

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Orchestrator

These release notes apply to Service Provider Foundation, a component of System Center 2012 - Orchestrator. They contain up-to-date information about known issues that you might experience.

For release notes that pertain to the Service Provider Foundation software development guide, see the Release Notes for Service Provider Foundation Developer's Guide.

Description: Although you can complete the installation of Service Provider Foundation 2012 R2 on a server with Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2012 SP1, they will not function together correctly.

Workaround: None. You must uninstall Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2012 SP1, then install VMM 2012 R2, and then install Service Provider Foundation 2012 R2.

Description: Specifying a NetBIOS name for a Service Provider Foundation (SPF) server will not work. Instead, SPF names must be in fully qualified domain name (FQDN) format. SPF is a feature in Orchestrator.

Workaround: Use FQDN format to name SPF servers.

Description: Updating Domain, User Name, or Password values individually for a Service Provider Foundation (SPF) Run As account will fail. SPF is a feature in Orchestrator.

Workaround: When updating a Run As account with a new Domain, User Name or Password, all values must be entered at the same time.

Description: Installation of Service Provider Foundation fails on a computer that has only IPv6 enabled for the network adapters.

Workaround: Enable IPv4.

Description: Service Provider Foundation cannot accommodate moving a virtual machine from one cloud to another.

Workaround: None. This is a known limitation.

Description: You can create a new virtual machine from a template by using a blank virtual hard disk (VHD). However, a 13206 error appears in the summary page. The virtual machine will be unusable if it is created with a VHD that contains no guest operating system.

Workaround: Create the virtual machine with a guest operating system.

Description: Sporadic timeout exceptions might occur when you are creating a virtual disk drive with a large VHD.

Workaround: Retry the operation.

Description: In attempting to create a new user role on a second Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) server, the administrator user role might be unable to create a new user role, because the attempt is treated as an accidental impersonation.

Workaround: Recycle the VMM application pool.

Description: If you create a tenant with a specified key and issuer name and then update that same tenant (such as by using the T:Microsoft.SystemCenter.Foundation.Cmdlet.Set-SCSPFTenant cmdlet) to a new key and issuer name, the new key for the tenant will not be updated in the database.

Workaround: Recreate the tenant as shown in the following example.

PS C:\> $tenant = Get-SCSPFTenant -Name "TenantToFix"
PS C:\> $issuerName = (Get-SCSPFTrustedIssuer -Tenant $tenant).Name
PS C:\> $stamps = Get-SCSPFStamp -Tenant $tenant
PS C:\> $userroles = Get-SCSPFTenantUserRole -Tenant $tenant | Select-Object Name
PS C:\> Remove-SCSPFTenant -Tenant $tenant
PS C:\> $tenant2 = New-SCSPFTenant -Name "FixedTenant" -IssuerName $issuerName -Key $key2 -Stamps $stamps
PS C:\> $userroles | foreach {New-SCSPFTenantUserRole -Tenant $tenant2 -Name $_.Name}

Description: If you perform a silent installation of Service Provider Foundation using passwords that contain double quotes that are not correctly escaped, they can cause the application pools credentials to use the Network Service instead of the expected Service Account.

Workaround: In Internet Information Services (IIS), verify the application pool identity credential is set correctly for each of the Service Provider Foundation web services. For more information about silent installs, see Setup Command-Line Options for Service Provider Foundation.
