DC authentication errors after November update

The November 9, 2021 security updates für Windows causes an issue in network environments with domain controllers (DCs). This is because Windows clients may no longer be able to authenticate against their domain controllers. The authentication issues occur with certain Kerberos delegation scenarios at the Domain Controller (DCs). I had covered this issue in the blog post November 2021 Patchday issues: WSUS, DC, Events early on, based on reader comments. And Microsoft had then confirmed the whole thing. This morning I received various reader comments pointing to some out-of-band updates to fix the problem.

Out-of-band updates for Windows 10/Windows Server 2016/2019

Various German reader comments (thanks for that) on the blog post now point to the out-of-band updates to fix the problem.

Update KB5008601 for Windows 10 V1607/Server 2016

Update KB5008601 is available for Windows 10 version 1607, as well as Windows Server 2016, and upgrades the OS build to 14393.4771. Microsoft states the following fix is performed by the update.

Fixes a known issue that can cause authentication failures related to Kerberos tickets that you purchased from Service for User to Self (S4U2self). This issue occurs after you install the November 9, 2021 security updates on domain controllers (DC) that run Windows Server.

This update must be manually downloaded and installed from Microsoft Update Catalog. For systems managed with WSUS, the out-of-band update must be manually imported from the download. For the update, Microsoft notes that this update fixes the printer errors that occur on clients:

  • 0x000006e4 (RPC_S_CANNOT_SUPPORT)
  • 0x0000007c (ERROR_INVALID_LEVEL)
  • 0x00000709 (ERROR_INVALID_PRINTER_NAME)

does not fix. About the printer errors Microsoft Healt-Status-Dashboard has written something and mentioned workarounds. In addition, I had given hints in the blog post Windows PrintNightmare printing issues: Server loses settings, Error while printing (Nov 11, 2021). It is currently unclear to me whether the KIR solution for error 0x0000007c (ERROR_INVALID_LEVEL) given there still works.
