Symptom Workaround
You may encounter a problem when using the “Preboot Execution Environment (PXE)” to start a device using a WDS server that is configured to use Variable Window Extension subsequent to receiving this patch. This may lead the connection to the WDS server to close prematurely while downloading the image. This mess doesn’t affect devices or clients that are not using the Variable Window Extension. To mitigate the issue, disable the Variable Window Extension on WDS server using one of the following options:

Option 1:
Open an Administrator Command prompt and type the following:

Wdsutil /Set-TransportServer /EnableTftpVariableWindowExtension:No

Option 2:
Use the Windows Deployment Services UI.

  1. Open Windows Deployment Services from Windows Administrative Tools.
  2. Expand Servers and right-click a WDS server.
  3. Open its properties and clear the Enable Variable Window Extension box on the TFTP tab.

Option 3:
Set the following registry value to 0:

“HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\

Services\WDSServer\Providers\

WDSTFTP\EnableVariableWindowExtension”

Restart the WDS Server service subsequent to turning off the Variable Window Extension.

Microsoft is active on a resolution process and will send an update in a future release.

Some operations, for example, rename, that you execute on files or folders that are on a CSV may fail with the message – STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5). This issue takes place when you do the operation on a CSV owner node from a process that does not have administrative authority. Do one of the following –

  • Complete the work from a process that has administrator privilege.
  • Do the execution from a node that does not have CSV ownership.

Microsoft is trying to fix the issue and will offer an update in a future release.
