Sharepoint 2010 - List Item Validation Failed

We have got a shared Sharepoint 2010 server running Windows Server 2008 R2 which is running multiple sharepoint sites under the same web application.

For one site, when trying to create a new permission group, we are getting a List Item Validation Error when trying to save the group. For the other sites, a new group is able to be successfully created without error so the problem appears to be isolated to the single site.

When looking at the logs for the correlation ID all that shows up is:

Verify the User Rights  through which you are logged in have full permission of the site. If permission is okay then try installing below Hot Fix .

The solution to the problem is to change the validation formula to handle the initial values e.g.

=[Start Date and Time]<=[End Date and Time]

Does that hotfix require the server to be rebooted or can it be run while people are actively using the system?

Aslo as far as I am aware, there has been no validation formula's set other then what is there by default when you add a group, so how would I check that?

You don't need to reboot the server.

Found the issue - there was a list validation set on http://intranet.xxxxxx.com.au/_layouts/people.aspx that was requiring an email address but even when an email was set, was still causing the error.

Pointed in the right direction by vinsvin and while the error was with validation, the formula and location were different than suggested
