KB4512516 for Windows 10 1709 changelog
Following are the major highlights and improvements brought by this particular cumulative update.
- KB4512516 is a cumulative patch and comes with a bunch of security updates for several Windows components and Microsoft’s browsers, IE and Edge.
- The Patch Tuesday package also has updates towards improving security while browsing with Microsoft’s browsers, input devices, for example, keyboard, mouse, or stylus and connectivity functions like Bluetooth and networking technologies.
- This cumulative patch also addresses an issue which would otherwise prevent devices from starting or causes them to repeatedly restart when those devices are connected to a domain configured for using MIT Kerberos realms. This would affect both domain controllers as well as domain members.
Following are the KB4512516 known issues –
One of the main known problems with KB4512516 is that the devices which use PXE or Preboot Execution Environment images from WDS or System Center Configuration Manager for start-up are unable to start post the installation of this update on a WDS server. The error message, “Status: 0xc0000001, Info: A required device isn’t connected or can’t be accessed” will come up along.
Microsoft is actively working for a resolution for this issue and you may expect an update anytime sooner in this context.
Further, there are some issues that are detected with folders or files which are on a CSV (an acronym for Cluster Shared Volume). Renaming or performing such operations on those files and folders would often fail. Such failure in operation is accompanied by an error message, ‘STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)’.
This issue has a temporary workaround, as the developers suggest. Since the error occurs when a user tries operating in a CSV-owner node and from a process which does not have the administrative right. Therefore, as a temporary solution, try performing the operation from a process with administrator privilege and a node without a CSV ownership.
Microsoft and team are working actively on a resolution. We can expect an update in an upcoming release.
