Service Manager 2016 UR2 released

February 27, 2017 Posted by Anders Asp

As in the title – Update Rollup 2 for SCSM 2016 was released a couple of days ago. It’s a small UR that fixes the known issue with SM crashing when trying to create a new Exchange Connector through the wizard. Other than that there are some fixes to the HTML5 portal:

  • You as an administrator create a new Exchange Connector through the System Center 2016 Service Manager console. When you click the Test Connection button in the Server Connection pane of the Create Exchange Connector wizard, you receive an exception.
  • Requests that are created through the Self-Service Portal always have the Source field of the work item set as Portal and the Status field set as New. These values are not overwritten when a template or Request Offering input mapping is applied.
  • In the Self-Service Portal, the Request Offering forms display validation errors in English, even when a non-English language is selected.
  • The Self-Service Portal does not display the full name of users (such as the reviewers list for Review Activity and implementer for Manual Activity) but instead only displays the domain\user-name information for the user.
  • The My Requests and the My Activities pages do not load in the Self-Service Portal if the object associated to a work item class has duplicate properties that have the same name because of class inheritance.

Download the UR here:

Note that there’s no need to install anything unless you are running the HTML5 portal. The Exchange Connector fix is just an updated DLL file.
