  2. Hi Stefan,
    After installing the Sept 2016 CU in the farm, is there a place on the server(s) that shows that the security fixes listed in the Sept 2016 PU were installed? I’m not seeing them in the “view installed updates” link under “Programs and Features” on the server and I’d like to prove to my server team that the security update are installed. Thanks.


    1. Hi JBro,
      the sharepoint Security fixes are included in the CUs. You cannot find the KB articles for the Security fixes if you installed the CU as the CU includes them.


  3. Hi,
    After we installed the SharePoint Server CU, we noticed that the document ID service started showing strange behaviour.
    It follows the same template as before: [Prefix]-[List ID]-[Item ID], where we would expect a new list on a site to have an ID of 1.
    Now it seems as though it assigns a random 8/9 digit number, we use scripts and templates to create new sites and their new lists so we would a list with ID 1 to correspond to a certain type of list or library. The random numbers are an inconvenience and aren’t isolated to new sites.
    Is this a known issue or has this been seen before?
