Windows[German]Microsoft has released a slew of security updates for Windows 7 through Windows 11 and Windows Server 2008 R2 through Windows Server 2022, effective January 17, 2022. These are intended to fix the various issues (DC boot loop, IPSec VPN connection issue, ReFS support, Hyper-V boot issue) in the clients and server versions caused by the Jan. 11, 2022 security updates. Here is an overview of these special updates for Windows 7 through 11 and the corresponding Windows Server versions.

I had reported about the issues caused by the Windows security updates of January 11, 2022 in the blog post Microsoft Microsoft Januar 2022 Patchday Revisions (2022/01/14) as well as in the following posts.

Windows Server: January 2022 security updates are causing DC boot loop
Windows VPN connections (L2TP over IPSEC) broken after January 2022 update
Windows Server 2012/R2: January 2022 Update KB5009586 bricks Hyper-V Host
Microsoft patch day issues Jan. 2022: bugs confirmed, but updates not pulled

The out-of-band updates from January 17, 2022 shall fix, according to Microsoft the bugs for the Windows versions (Clients, Server) listed below.

The fixed bugs are described in the linked support posts as well as in subsequent blog posts.

All these updates are optional and some of them are only offered for download in the Microsoft Update Catalog.

Another tip for administrators who distribute the updates via WSUS. They need to be downloaded and installed from the Microsoft Update Catalog. Those who have disabled IE and are using Edge can use the approach I outlined in the blog post How-To: Import OOB Updates in WSUS without IE, but with Microsoft Edge to import via Edge.

    no mention of server 2019 (1809) ?

    • guenni says:

      Currently it seems that this update hasn't been released. I will add it, after it's release.

  2. Jason Davis says:

    Server 16 patch will not install…shows not applicable. This whole thing is a total shit show.

    • EP says:

      did you install KB5005698 servicing stack update first, Jason?

      KB5010790 requires latest SSU for Server 2016

      • Jason Davis says:

        Yes…it is already installed…downloaded it again and attempted to install just to be sure…greeted with the same not applicable message.

  3. Siegfried B says:

    What should I do now? I have uninstalled these updates:
    KB5009624 2022-01 Security Monthly quality Rollup
    KB5009595 2022-01 Security Only Quality Update
    Should I re-install them and then install the fix?

    • EP says:

      not exactly

      assuming you're using Server 2012 R2 / Win8.1,

      first re-install KB5009624 but DON'T reboot right away yet; then install KB5010794 and THEN reboot

    Hi,

    Am I missing something?
    If you import these updates into wsus that work but because they're optional the devices are no requesting them so its effectivley pointless. Is anyone else seeing the same thing?

    Cheers
    Vibs

  6. Michael Schoder says:

    Hi,

    i've installed the KB5010796 on two DC's. One DC with KB5009555 pre installed and the other DC without.

    Result : Both DC's restart after installing the patches. So no change at all.

    Cheers
    Mike

    I thought that it is safe to install KB5009624 on Jan 22 – had some entertaining weekend a week ago with crashing domain controllers and broken hyper-V. It was offered after checking for new updates toda, on January 22. And guess what – it is not fixed and broke my Hyper-V again. Microsoft, stop smoking weed on winter holidays, this is really frustrating!

    • guenni says:

      Well, KB5009624 is still the old Security Monthly quality Rollup. You need to install KB5010794 (Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2)
