Version 1

    LANDESK Security and Patch News


    ·         (April 25, 2016) Microsoft has released KB3103709 which is an update for Windows Server 2012 R2-based domain controller.

    The following issues are fixed in this update:
    Issue 1 Faster inserts to Active Directory change notification queue delays servicing of Asynchronous Thread Queue (ATQ) thread pool, LDAP queries, and notification based replication.

    When this condition is true, domain controller (DC) Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) consumes 100% CPU usage. The following operations are blocked when change notification queues develop on a given DC:
    Active Directory Replication triggered by change notification is delayed.
    ATQ thread registration or unregistration is delayed.
    Writes to the DC are blocked.
    When the insertion string is ongoing, the processing of the notification queue is also blocked. Notification based replication is blocked during this operation.
    CPU usage for the LSASS process runs cold on DCs as all multiple operations are blocked and the only thread gets CPU time as Active Directory replication.

    Issue 2 Renames of domain-joined SQL server member computers fails with error "The directory service is busy".

    Can't rename a domain-joined computer, the rename fails with the following error message:

    The directory service is busy

    For more information about this issue, see update 3152220.

    Issue 3

    A single logon attempt on the website is counted as two logon attempts in Active Directory. Therefore, count of incorrect password increases by two instead of by one.

    Issue 4 LSASS occurs access violation together with error "0xc0000005" on Windows Server 2012 R2 DCs targeted by Azure AD Connect identity sync clients that run "Full Import".

    When a user runs "Full Import" on Azure AD Connect identity sync client against a Windows Server 2012 R2-based DC, access violation occurs on LSASS process, and the DC restarts with error code "0xc0000005". This issue occurs when the Active Directory Recycle Bin is disabled.

    For more information about this issue, see update 3145339.
    Issue 5

    Lsass.exe crashes on DC when a user runs a recursive Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) query against an Active Directory group.
