KB4088878 & KB4088875 causes network connectivity issues on Windows Server 2008 R2 OR Windows 7 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi all,

    KB4088878 & KB4088875 may causes network connectivity issues on Windows Server 2008 R2 OR Windows 7.

    =====================

    Symptoms

    ====================

    1.A new Ethernet virtual Network Interface Card (vNIC) may be created with default settings in place of the previously existing vNIC, causing network issues. Any custom settings on the previous vNIC are still persisted in the registry but unused.

    2. After you install this rollup, virtualized applications in Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) versions 4.5, 4.6, and 5.0 may have problems loading. When these problems occur, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:

    Launching MyApp 100%

    Note In this error message, MyApp represents the name of the App-V application.


    3. After you install this rollup, if outgoing NTLM traffic is blocked by using the following group policy setting:

    Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\SecurityOptions\Network Security: Restrict NTLM: Outgoing NTLM traffic to remote servers

    Group Policy object (GPO) backup operations will fail with both Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) as well as PowerShell with the following error message:

    A directory Service error has occurred

    Additionally, gpmgmt.log will log the following errors:

    [XXX.XXX] DateTime [WARNING] LdapConnectServer: ldap_bind_s failed with 0x80072095

    4. After you install this rollup, in some cases, you may notice that the robocopy mirroring (/MIR) command is not working as expected. It is observed that instead of only copying modified files from Source to Destination, robocopy is also copying the files that were not modified. Command where the issue is observed:

    Robocopy <source> <destination> /MIR [<options>]

    5. 32-bit applications can't change local Group Policy in 64-bit version of Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

    =========================================

    Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an upcoming release. You also could follow this  link for a workaround:

    Convenience rollup update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server

  • Why did Microsoft release ANOTHER update that wipes out network settings?!?!?!

    After you apply this update, a new Ethernet Network Interface Card (NIC) that has default settings may replace the previous NIC and cause network issues. Any custom settings on the previous NIC persist in the registry but aren't used.

    Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

    IP address settings are lost after you apply this update. Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

  • Yup, this just wiped out most of our environment over the weekend. Had to login as Local Administrator and re-apply network settings on each server...
