Microsoft Office Server SP2 Bug Fix: License Expiration Notice KB 971620 & other SP2 Issues
Hello All - In case you haven't already run into this there is a slight bug when applying SP2 for Microsoft Office Servers which was released on April 28th.  You will have to re-enter your product license key via the Central Administration UI.  Microsoft has posted a Knowledge Base article about it.  Here's the link:

MS Office Team Blog entry on this subject is here:

I've been trolling around and saw some threads with a few problems but it seems to have been relatively trouble free.  I'm in the middle of finishing up some other solutions to be deployed to production so I won't be applying this patch till this development cycle is done.  I don't want to have to take them all through that level of testing again.  One thing at a time makes my life much easier.

Things I've read about so far are:

1.  Project Server gant charts are displaying incorrectly - no solution posted yet
2.  Environment where there were multiple WFE's had problems loading web apps - solution delete web app & recreate with same IIS site and content db.
3.  People picker doesn't show AD accounts - no solutions posted yet

Remember that everyone's environment is different so apply this to your development servers first and test test test!!  That will save you a lot of headaches.  Especially since getting through to Microsoft's Business Critical support for a SharePoint bug is a gauntlet to be sure!
