Note: The message below is the same as the previous out-of-band update announcement but now with update information for Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
Microsoft is releasing Out-of-band (OOB) updates today, November 17, 2022 and November 18, 2022 for installation on all the Domain Controllers (DCs) in affected environments. This update addresses a known issue which might cause sign in failures or other Kerberos authentication issues. You do not need to install any update or make any changes to other servers or client devices in your environment to resolve this issue. If you used any workaround or mitigations for this issue, they are no longer needed, and we recommend you remove them.
To get the standalone package for these out-of-band updates, search for the KB number in the Microsoft Update Catalog. You can manually import these updates into Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. For WSUS instructions, see WSUS and the Catalog Site. For Configuration Manger instructions, see Import updates from the Microsoft Update Catalog. Note The below updates are not available from Windows Update and will not install automatically.
Note: You do not need to apply any previous update before installing these cumulative updates. If you have already installed updates released November 8, 2022, you do not need to uninstall the affected updates before installing any later updates including the updates listed above.

Note: If you are using security only updates for these versions of Windows Server, you only need to install these standalone updates for the month of November 2022.

Monthly rollup updates are cumulative and include security and all quality updates. If you are using Monthly rollup updates, you will need to install both the standalone updates listed above to resolve this issue, and install the Monthly rollups released November 8, 2022 to receive the quality updates for November 2022.
