  • Addresses an issue that renders fonts incorrectly.
  • Addresses an issue with the SetWindowRgn API. It incorrectly sets the window region’s coordinates relative to the client area instead of relative to the upper-left corner of the window. As a result, users cannot maximize, minimize, or close a window.

This occurs on devices that installed Windows Updates that contain CVE-2020-17049 protections and configured PerfromTicketSignature to 1 or higher. These updates were released between November 10, 2020 and December 8, 2020. Ticket acquisition also fails with the error, “KRB_GENERIC_ERROR”, if callers submit a PAC-less Ticket Granting Ticket (TGT) as an evidence ticket without providing the USER_NO_AUTH_DATA_REQUIRED flag.

  • Addresses an issue that might cause the IKEEXT service to stop working intermittently.
  • Addresses an issue with updating to Windows Server 2019 using a .iso image. If you renamed the default administrator account, the Local Security Authority (LSA) process might stop working.
  • Addresses an issue that causes a cluster disk to go offline, and the cluster log reports the error, “RPC_X_BAD_STUB_DATA”.
  • Addresses an issue that might cause stop error 7E in nfssvr.sys on servers running the Network File System (NFS) service.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents the User Profile Service from detecting a slow or a fast link reliably.
  • Addresses an issue that causes contention for a metadata lock when using Work Folders.
  • Addresses an issue that causes a Work Folder sync to fail with the error code 0x8007017c if you have turned on On-Demand File Access.
  • Updates the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) Device Management (DM) sync protocol by adding a check-in reason for requests from the client to the server. The check-in reason will allow the mobile device management (MDM) service to make better decisions about sync sessions. With this change, the OMA-DM service must negotiate a protocol version of 4.0 with the Windows OMA-DM client.
  • Addresses an issue with failover in an environment that only has IPv6 clusters. If the failover cluster has been running for more than 24 days, attempts to do a failover might not succeed or might be delayed.
  • Adds a new dfslogkey as described below:
    • Keypath: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/dfslog.
    • The RootShareAcquireSuccessEvent field has the following possible values:
      • Default value = 1; enables the log.
      • Value other than 1; disables the log.

If this key does not exist, it will be created automatically. To take effect, any change to dfslog/RootShareAcquireSuccessEvent in the registry requires that you restart the DFSN service.
