Please, also clarify what you mean by "not available". Did the featured image just disappear from your old posts, and/or are some images not to be found in the media library?

If you're using Auto Post Thumbnail plugin, that might be it.

It was recently updated for 3.4, and the changelog includes a link to the script for updating thumbnails in existing posts.

The related changeset is [20613]: get_attached_file() now only returns the file name if the file actually exists, relying on the correct _wp_attached_file value in the database.

I have Tried Deactivating all the plugins and activating them again, but that didn't work.
Problem area --> I am having featured images set for many posts in my WordPress, and it is a multisite network. When i update my WordPress to 3.4.1 80% of my featured images are not appearing on my website. The problem is in all the sites except my home site. The images are there in my media library, but when i open in my post the featured image is not available there. It is working fine when i re-upload images to my post.

I not using any plugins for the featured image.

Do the normal theme check, but you're the only person I've heard of having this issue, and a lot of people use Multisite, so the odds are against it being a bug in WP, and more that it's your site :/

(Normal theme check being - please switch the sub sites to twenty eleven and see if they start working,)
