Update Rollup 6 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011

The Update Rollup 6 for CRM 2011 has been released from Microsoft. The initial release was done about 10 days ago, but due to some issues they were pulled. The exact reasons are unclear, and since the update rollup cannot be removed, I hope you did not install the erroneous version the day it came out! But in case you did, the new Update could be installed on top of the old Rollup 6.

The new release so far seems good - no issues during the update and as far as I noticed, no issues after the update! The link for downloading the update is as follows:

Here are some of the issues that were fixed in the update rollup 6:

  • When you access Microsoft Dynamics CRM with Claims enabled over Internet-Facing Deployment (IFD), the 404 error pages are generated at random.
  • When you add a custom lookup field to the quick find field list in Quick Find view in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM client for Outlook, the custom lookup field displays no records.
  • When you assign records from one user to another user in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, you experience slow performance. Additionally, the assignment process may time out.
  • When you switch quickly between several Microsoft Dynamics CRM Account records, Microsoft Office Outlook crashes.
  • When you save appointments in Outlook, you experience slow performance.
  • Assume that you close opportunities by using a Microsoft CRM software development kit (SDK) in the Microsoft CRM client for Outlook in offline mode. When you try to change the client back to an online state, a playback error occurs.
The complete list of hotfixes and updates is available here:

If anything, the takeaway from the re-released rollup update is to start planning on backing up the crm database before any major upgrade. If things do not work out just the way you want it, there is the possibility of restoring the db to the pre-upgrade state.
