After installing updates released June 14, 2022, or later ( KB5014678), PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) using an encrypted the PSCredential property might fail when decrypting the credentials on the target node. This failure will result in a password related error message, similar to: “The password supplied to the Desired State Configuration resource <resource name> is not valid. The password cannot be null or empty.”. Note: Environments which use non-encrypted PSCredential properties will not experience the issue.

DSC is a management platform in PowerShell that enables administrators to manage IT and development infrastructure with configuration as code. This issue is not likely to be experienced by home users of Windows.

Resolution: This issue was resolved in KB5015827.

Affected platforms:

  • ​Client: Windows 11, version 21H2; Windows 10, version 21H2; Windows 10, version 21H1; Windows 10, version 20H2; Windows 10, version 1809; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2016
  • ​Server: Windows Server 2022; Windows Server, version 20H2; Windows Server, version 1809; Windows Server 2019; Windows Server 2016

After installing KB5014021 and later updates, IE mode tabs in Microsoft Edge might stop responding when a site displays a modal dialog box. A modal dialog box is a form or dialog box which requires the user to respond before continuing or interacting with other portions of the webpage or app. Developer Note: Sites affected by this issue call window.focus.

Next steps: We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

Affected platforms:

  • ​Client: Windows 11, version 21H2; Windows 10, version 21H2; Windows 10, version 21H1; Windows 10, version 20H2

After installing KB5009555 or any updates released January 11, 2022 and later on your domain controllers, scenarios which rely on Read-only domain controllers (RODCs) or synthetic RODC machine accounts might fail to establish a Netlogon secure channel. RODC accounts must have a linked and compliant KRBTGT account to successfully establish a secure channel. Affected applications or network appliances, such as Riverbed SteelHead WAN Optimizers, might have issues joining domains or limitations after joining a domain.

Next Steps: Affected apps and network appliances will need an update from their developer or manufacturer to resolve this issue. Microsoft and Riverbed are presently investigating and will provide an update when more information is available.

Affected platforms:

  • ​Server: Windows Server 2022; Windows Server 2019; Windows Server 2016; Windows Server 2012 R2; Windows Server 2012; Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1; Windows Server 2008 SP2

After installing updates released January 11, 2022 or later, apps using Microsoft .NET Framework to acquire or set Active Directory Forest Trust Information might fail, close, or you might receive an error from the app or Windows. You might also receive an access violation (0xc0000005) error. Note for developers: Affected apps use the System.DirectoryServices API.

Next Steps: This issue was resolved in the out-of-band update for the version of .NET Framework used by the app. Note: These out-of-band updates are not available from Windows Update and will not install automatically. To get the standalone package, search for the KB number for your version of Windows and .NET Framework in the Microsoft Update Catalog. You can manually import these updates into Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. For WSUS instructions, see WSUS and the Catalog Site. For Configuration Manger instructions, see Import updates from the Microsoft Update Catalog.
