On September 8, 2020, Microsoft rolled out its most recent security update which includes changes to the services listed below:

  • Windows App Platform and Frameworks

  • Windows Graphics

  • Windows Media

  • Windows Cloud Infrastructure

  • Windows Authentication

  • Windows Cryptography

  • Windows Kernel

  • Windows Hybrid Cloud Networking

  • Windows Peripherals

  • Windows Storage and Filesystems

  • Windows Network Security and Containers

  • Windows SQL components

This update also includes a couple of known issues that Microsoft is working on resolving, but they have released a workaround for each issue.

Issue:

After installing this update and restarting your device, you might receive the error, “Failure to configure Windows updates. Reverting Changes. Do not turn   off your computer,” and the update might show as Failed in Update History.

Workaround:

This is expected in the following circumstances:

  • If you are installing this update on a device that is running an edition that is not supported for ESU.

  • If you do not have an ESU MAK add-on key installed and activated. 

  • If you have purchased an ESU key and have encountered this issue, please verify you have applied all prerequisites and that your key is activated.

 

Issue:


Certain operations, such as rename, that you perform on files or folders that are on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) may fail with the error, "STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)". This occurs when you perform the operation on a CSV owner node from a process that doesn't have administrator privilege.

Workaround:

Do one of the following:

  • Perform the operation from a process that has administrator privilege.

  • Perform the operation from a node that doesn't have CSV ownership.
