November 27, 2017—KB4051034 (Preview of Monthly Rollup)

Applies to: Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1

Improvements and fixes


This non-security update includes improvements and fixes that were a part of KB4048957 (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 where local policy updates made by 32-bit applications such as Configmgr fail to apply on 64-bit Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 computers that installed KB3125574 and its related updates. This occurs because changes are written to the incorrect path %windir%\Syswow64\GroupPolicy\Machine\registry.pol instead of to %windir%\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\registry.pol.

  • Addressed delays when accessing shared Microsoft Office documents from a remote network drive. Files open, but accessing and saving files are affected. Access delays increase dramatically with increased file size.
  • 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 KB4048957.
