Known Issues on KB4507459

Symptom Workaround

There occurs a problem for the Hosts that are administered by SCVMM. This is because SCVMM can’t mention or even run logical switches which are deployed on the hosts after each update installation.

After all, if you don’t follow the best practices, there is a higher potentiality to appear a stop bug in vfpext.sys on the hosts.

To solve the above issue, you must follow either of these two solutions-

1 – Do mofcomp among the subsequent mof files on the affected host-

  • Scvmmswitchportsettings.mof
  • VMMDHCPSvr.mof

2 –  As a workaround, you can also move towards the best tactics while patching so as to avoid a stop error in vfpext.sys in an SDN v2 environment (NC managed hosts).

 

After installing KB4467684, the cluster service may fail to start with the error “2245 (NERR_PasswordTooShort)” if the group policy “Minimum Password Length” is configured with greater than 14 characters.

On installing KB4467684, the cluster service won’t start. In fact, it starts showing the following error message-

“2245 (NERR_PasswordTooShort)” if the group policy “Minimum Password Length”

Basically, this issue appears when one uses more than 14 characters on the cluster services.

To extricate this issue, there is the requirement to set up the domain default “Minimum Password Length” policy. Here, it should be equal to or less than 14 characters.

The Company is yet to provide a permanent solution to this trouble.

A few specific functions, such as rename may result “STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)” bug.

This error message appears only if you do above operations on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV). This bug may also arise if someone uses Non-Admin account to do similar processes on a CSV owner node.

To fix this problem, you may perform the following tasks-

  1. Carry out the operation using a process that has administrator privilege.
  2. Execute the procedure from a node that doesn’t require CSV ownership.

Microsoft is yet to provide a permanent solution to this issue.

When you take help of Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) images from Windows Deployment Services (WDS) or System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) to start up your machine, there may appear the following error-

 

Status: 0xc0000001, Info: A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed“.
