Last week, we mentioned that the January 11th, 2022 updates caused some Domain Controllers to restart unexpectedly. Our advice, then, was to uninstall the updates when encountering this problem. However, uninstalling these updates also rolled back other fixes that address critical vulnerabilities in Windows Server. It results in a situation where you don’t want to be in for several weeks or months.
Today, Microsoft offers a solution by releasing additional updates for the Operating Systems affected by the Domain Controller boot loops.
