This service release also resolves the issue of Microsoft Windows Security Software Protection Platform (SPP) service events every two minutes in the Windows Application Event log while running Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 on HP StoreEasy Storage Systems.

These events are reported when the HP StoreEasy Dashboard application initiates the operating system license verification every time the application performs a health check. By default, this happens every two minutes. The messages that appear are warnings and do not affect system operations. With the updated HP StoreEasy Dashboard, the application checks the license only when you restart the system.
