    LANDESK Security and Patch News  



    ·       (October 22, 2015) Microsoft has released KB3094486 to address an issue that occurs on Windows Server 2012 R2-based domain controllers.

    Microsoft Key Distribution Service (KDS) doesn't start if domain controllers are located in a child organizational unit (OU) of the Domain Controllers OU. When this issue occurs, you receive an error message that looks something like this:

      System error 1064 has occurred. An Exception occurred in the service when handling the control request.

    This issue occurs because KDS assumes that the domain controllers are in the Domain Controllers OU instead of a child OU of Domain Controller.
