KB5005568 is breaking my network adaptor

Juan de Villiers 1 Reputation point

After doing the kb5005568 update, my DC network adaptor still has all the same settings as before but is unable to communicate with the network. It can connect to and identify the domain network name but can't ping anything on the network nor be pinged from any device on the network. When switching to DHCP, the IP addresses switch the the failover linked local IP address range even though the network has a DHCP server on it. Rolling back the update allows connectivity again.

The server is a 2019 Server and is hosted on a 2012 HyperV Server.

I would like to apply the update since it is marked critical. Anything I can check or possible solutions?

    I'd start by checking here and with manufacturer that the hardware supports Server 2019

    might also check the manufacturer's site for the latest firmware, ROM bios, chipset and driver support pack.
