KB5014738 causing issues to VMware virtual machines

Sahil Rana 1 Reputation point

Hello Folks,

We faced an issue after installing patch KB5014738 on windows 2012 R2 servers. These are VMs on vmware vsphere.

After installing the patch the remote services of machine went down and we could not RDP into the machine or access any share.

The only fix was to login using safe boot and uninstall the patch.

I searched and I could not find a single blog mentioning issues about this patch. Though there are references about the 4 problematic patches released with June updates (5014678, 5014692, 5014702, 5014746).

The issue we saw with patch 5014738 was similar to what the above patches are causing.

Does anyone know or have seen issues with patch 5014738 till now?
