November 19, 2019—KB4525252 (Preview of Monthly Rollup)

Applies to: Windows 8.1Windows Server 2012 R2Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Enterprise

Improvements and fixes


This non-security update includes improvements and fixes that were a part of KB4525243 (released November 12, 2019) and also includes these new quality improvements as a preview of the next Monthly Rollup update:

  • Addresses an issue with evaluating the compatibility status of the Windows ecosystem to help ensure application and device compatibility for all updates to Windows. 
  • Addresses an issue in which netdom.exe fails to correctly identify trust relationships when an unconstrained delegation is explicitly enabled by adding bitmask 0x800 to the trust object. The bitmask setting is required because of security changes to the default behavior of unconstrained delegations in Windows updates released on or after July 8, 2019. For more information, see KB4490425 and the article, 6.1.6.7.9 trustAttributes.

Known issues in this update


Symptom

Workaround

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.

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.
Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
