We're proud to announce that Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Update Rollup 6 released Thursday, Jan. 12th,2012! 

On Friday Jan. 13th, 2012 at 8 AM Pacific Standard Time, Greg Nichols and Ryan Anderson from the Microsoft Premier Field Engineering team, as well as Corey Hanson, Supportability Program Manager for Microsoft Dynamics CRM, provided information about the recent release of Update Rollup 6 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011. They also discussed the upcoming release of Update Rollup 21 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 during their:

For pointers to download locations, release dates, build information, and CRM Premier Field Engineering blogs and podcasts for all Microsoft Dynamics CRM Update Rollups, visit the "CRM Update Rollup Collateral Page" 

Note: The CRM 2011 Update Rollup 6 packages, originally released on Jan. 12th, 2011, were recalled early Jan. 13th. If you have downloaded any of these packages (build 1985) please discard them and download new versions available now (build 9692.1992). The new packages were released Saturday, Jan. 21st. 

If you did new installs with the Update Rollup 6 "slipstream" packages that were released (these would be the packages that include the full install bits as well as Update Rollup 6) you will get an error trying to patch those components to the new Update Rollup 6 build. This Knowledge Base article describes the issue: 

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2668504 . This Knowledge Base article is live, as well as the updated Update Rollup 6 KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2600640. 

The only workaround is to reinstall if you happened to use the Update Rollup 6 slipstream builds. For server you can connect to existing databases on the reinstall. The reinstall goes for any of the components that you installed with the Update Rollup 6 slipstream builds, (Client, Router, etc.). If you do not reinstall you will not be able to patch to the re-released Update Rollup 6 packages or future Update Rollups, as Update Rollup 6 represents a new baseline.

Update Rollup 6 Build number:
5.0.9688.1992

Note: Update Rollup 6 cannot be uninstalled. Specific database updates are applied during Update Rollup 6 installation that will not let you uninstall Update Rollup 6. You should back up your databases and application servers before you install this update.

Note: Update Rollup 6 establishes a new servicing baseline. This will enable uninstalls of some future CRM 2011 Update Rollups, but this also means that Update Rollup 6 will be a prerequisite for installation of post-Update Rollup 6 Update Rollups.

Note: As Update Rollup 6 is cumulative, containing all changes released in earlier Update Rollup releases, it also contains the Dynamics CRM Q4 Service Update features released via Update Rollup 5.  Some of these features include:

  • Outlook Client Updates:
    • Enhancements to the Reading Pane
    • Asynchronous promotion for tracked emails
  • Dialog Enhancements
  • Data Visualization Enhancements:
    • Chart Designer Enhancements
    • New Chart Types
  • Data Management Enhancements to:
    • Auditing
    • Duplicate Detection
  • Activity Feeds
    • Listening in on important activities in Social Media that take place around the people, accounts, contacts, leads or opportunities that you care about, including a Windows 7.5 phone application: "Business Hub"
    • Update Rollup 5 does not install Activity Feeds:

Packages are available for download via: 

  • The Update Rollup 6 Microsoft Download Center page (on Jan. 12th, 2012)
  • The Microsoft Update Catalog (on Jan. 24th, 2012)
  • The Microsoft Update detection / installation process (on Jan. 24th, 2012)
    • Note: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Updates will be pushed via Microsoft Update as Important updates

Hotfixes and updates that you have to enable or configure manually

Occasionally, updates released via Update Rollups require manual configuration to enable them. Microsoft Dynamics CRM Update Rollups are always cumulative; for example, Update Rollup 6 contains all fixes previously released via Update Rollups 1-5 as well as fixes newly released via Update Rollup 6. So if you install Update Rollup 6 on a machine upon which you previously installed no Update Rollups, you will need to manually enable any desired fixes for Update Rollups 1-6:

    • Update Rollup 1: no updates requiring manual configuration
    • Update Rollup 2 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 contains the following update that you must enable or configure manually - details on enabling or configuring can be found in this Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
      • 2535245 RetrieveMultiple optimization for basic depth needed for local and deep depth read privileges in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011
    • Update Rollup 3: no updates requiring manual configuration
    • Update Rollup 4: no updates requiring manual configuration
    • Update Rollup 5: no updates requiring manual configuration
    • Update Rollup 6 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 contains the following update that you must enable or configure manually - details on enabling or configuring can be found in this Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
      • 2664150  Steps to clean up the PrincipalObjectAccess table in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 after Update Rollup 6 is applied

 

Mismatched Update Rollup versions within a Microsoft Dynamics CRM deployment

In a scenario where you may be running many client workstations with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 for Microsoft Office Outlook, a common question is whether it is supported to run mismatched versions. For example, where Update Rollup 5 has been installed on the CRM Server but the Outlook clients are still on Update Rollup 1, or where Update Rollup 1 is on the CRM server but due to updates available to the Outlook client you have decided to install Update Rollup 6 on the clients without installing Update Rollup 4 on the server.

The general rule of thumb is to try to keep the versions in sync as much as possible. However, it is permissible (though not recommended as a long-term solution) to run mismatched Update Rollup versions on Outlook client and server, as Microsoft does do some testing of such combinations.

However, regarding the other Update Rollups (for example Rollups for the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Email Router or Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Reporting Extensions), it is not supported nor recommended to run mismatched versions. A best practice is to update these components at the same time you update your CRM Server.  Do the best you can to keep these Update Rollup versions in sync.

Internet Explorer 9 Compatibility

The Microsoft Dynamics CRM Sustained Engineering team extensively tested Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 against pre-release versions of Internet Explorer 9 and continues to address compatibility issues, as appropriate, against the RTW (Released to Web) version of Internet Explorer 9.  When necessary, Microsoft plans to release enhancements via future Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Update Rollups to assure compatibility with Internet Explorer 9.

There are three CRM 2011 application compatibility fix released via Update Rollup 6 related to Internet Explorer 9:

  • When you browse in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM web client by using Internet Explorer 9, Internet Explorer consumes excessive memory. Therefore, you experience slow performance
  • When you use the Schedule feature in a service appointment in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 with Internet Explorer 9, you receive the following error message:
    • Can't execute code from freed script
  • In Internet Explorer 8 or 9, ribbons are not displayed immediately when you open a form in Microsoft Dynamics CRM

There is a Update Rollup 5 fix for an expanding memory footprint issue associated with Internet Explorer, but it impacts all versions of Internet Explorer supported by CRM 2011  - those being Internet Explorer versions 7, 8, and 9.

  • Just received the Information from Microsoft that today the Rollup 6 will be removed.

    It seems there is something wrong.

    Microsoft wrote to wait till monday !

    Kind regards

  • IMPORTANT:

    Yes, thanks.  I wanted to report that an Microsoft CRM 2011 Client for Microsoft Outlook issue has surfaced, and the Update Rollup 6 packages for Client and Server are being temporarily removed from the Microsoft Download Center this morning pending our investigation. Please hold off on downloading Update Rollup 6 until new packages are available.

    If you have downloaded UR6 packages for any components, please discard them and wait for an update on our investigation and the release of new packages.  If you have installed them, please note that the issue appears to be related to Outlook Client sync and prepare to install a newer build when it is available.

  • Hi,

    From where we can download the hotfix for the issue "You cannot run reports in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM client for Outlook when Claims Authentication is enabled"

    Thanks,

    Deepak

  • Hi,  How do i get to know that about the latest CRM rollups

  • @Deepak - all the update rollups are cumulative, if this issue has been fixed in the current UR or prior you can get the fix by installing the latest update rollup.

    @Athul - to find the latest information around update rollups you can look no further than our blog :)  but in addition to our blog the CRM Team blog posts information around the update rollups at launch and the KB article for that particular UR will be published at the time of the launch as well. Regarding the schedule of update rollups our own Greg Nichols has written a nice post on the anticipated dates and information on the most recent update rollup - feel free to bookmark this as he's been keeping it up to date: bit.ly/CRMURReleaseDates

  • Where can we get the Orgdborgsettings tool?  We would like to disable the record count feature, but are unable to obtain the tool to set that option.
