Improvements and fixes


This non-security update includes improvements and fixes that were a part of KB4048958 (released November 14, 2017) and also includes these new quality improvements as a preview of the next Monthly Rollup update:

  • Addressed issue where smart card logons fail after the authenticating domain controller (DC) has been restarted. The error is: "Signing in with a smart card isn’t supported for your account...". The authenticating DC logs KDC event 19 and Kerberos Distribution event 29 in the System event log. The log states that a suitable certificate cannot be found for smart card logons.

  • Addressed issue to provide complete transparency about Replication Health. Replication Health represents the state of replication based on the following criteria: low free disk space, the Hyper-V Replica Log (HRL) reaching its maximum size, and violation of the Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) threshold.
  • Addressed issue that impacted some Epson SIDM (Dot Matrix) and TM (POS) printers, which were failing to print on x86 and x64-based systems. This issue affects KB4048958.
