Two critical issues have been identified in the ZMF 8.1.2 GA release, regarding conversion from releases prior to ZMF 7.1.3 and installs to 8.1.2 P sites from pre 8.1.2 D or DP Sites. Due to the severe impact of these issues, customers must install an 8.1.2 hotfix prior to performing the conversion to 8.1.2. 

Problem Description:
1) DEF292806 - Customers upgrading from ZMF releases below ZMF 7.1.3, going to 8.1.2, will experience component master corruption.
2) DEF293091 - In a staggered upgrade environment where P sites are upgraded to ZMF 8.1.2 prior to D or DP sites, installs to the P site will not submit the CMN20 job following the execution of CMN21.

Obtaining the ZMF 8.1.2 compatible hotfix:
Further information and the hotfix for these problems can be obtained from Solution S141939.
