    This update fixes some known issues of HPC Pack 2016 update 3 as described below,

    - Improve the SOA performance and reliability.
    - Fix the issue that sometimes the cluster utilization rate is shown greater than 100% in the cluster utilization chart.
    - Fix the issue that NAT is not working if the OS of the head node is Windows Server 2016 or above.
    - Support UEFI boot for bare metal deployment.
    - Fix an issue that in some situation HPCUsers cannot call service registration REST API.
    - Fix an issue that in some rare condition, some compute nodes are in OK state, but cannot run tasks.
    - Fix an issue that a parametric sweep job cannot finish when all its tasks finish.
    - Fix an issue that old jobs are not cleaned up in time.
    - Fix an issue that “SortByNodes” query parameter doesn’t work in HPC Web API.
    - Support pagination in HPC Web API at endpoint “/hpc”: A “StartRow” query parameter can be used when getting list of jobs/tasks/nodes. The first row has index 0. When this parameter presents in request,
    a) The server will returns the requested range of rows defined by “StartRow” and “RowsPerRead”(default to 10).
    b) The total row count is returned in the response header “x-ms-row-count”.
    c) The response headers "x-ms-continuation-QueryId" and "x-ms-continuation-CurrentObjectNumber" will not be returned.
    - Support sorting order in HPC Web API at endpoint “/hpc”: A “Asc” query parameter can be used when getting list of jobs/tasks/nodes. The parameter has a default value “True”, to sort the list ascendingly. When given a value “False”, the return list is in descending order. The sort field is specified by “SortNodesBy”/”SortJobsBy”/”SortTasks” query parameters as before.
    - Enforce authorization of SignalR Hubs for job & task events.
    - Increase the life time of continuation token/rowset in web service to 60 min.
    - Fix an issue that start/stop IaaS nodes may fail unexpectedly.
    - Fix an error in auto grow shrink when the monitoring service is temporarily unavailable.
    - Fix a possible job scheduler hang when the scheduler service restarts.
    - Fix an issue that SOA message level trace cannot be viewed after system reboot.
    - Fix Web Portal connection and port leak.
    - Fix an issue that HpcMonitoring service may stop to persist minute counters.
    - Sort nodes by node group and node name for auto grow and avoid to retry the same batch of failed nodes.
    - Add change role button back to the context menu for Azure IaaS nodes.
    - Fix a scheduler SQL insert NULL exception when adding job/task allocation history caused by node GUID changing.
    - Fix an issue that Linux node with FQDN host name may not be recognized by scheduler.
    - Improve Linux node GPU instance name readability in metric info.
    - Fix an issue that Azure IaaS nodes are stuck at Provisioning state occasionally when auto grow shrink is enabled.
    - Fix an issue that sometimes compute node cannot join the cluster with “node name already exists” error.
    - Fix an issue that Cluster Manager cannot view reporting charts after moving HPCReporting database to another SQL server instance.
    - Fix some issues in French OS.
