Today is the second Tuesday of February, so it is time to check for updates if you are running Microsoft Windows. The Redmond firm has released a set of cumulative updates for all supported Windows versions. Here are the patches available for Windows 11 and Windows 10.
Windows 11 (version 21H2) - KB5010386 (OS Build 22000.493).
- Addresses an issue that causes a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) modify operation to fail if the operation contains the SamAccountName and UserAccountControl attributes. The error message is, “Error: 0x20EF. The directory service encountered an unknown failure”.
All the patches released for Windows 10 include the above mentioned fix.
- November 2021 Update (version 21H2) - KB5010342 (OS Build 19044.1526).
- May 2021 Update (version 21H1) - KB5010342 (OS Build 19043.1526).
- October 2020 Update (version 20H2) - KB5010342 (OS Build 19042.1526).
- November 2019 Update (version 1909) - KB5010345 (OS Build 18363.2094).
- October 2018 Update (version 1809) - KB5010351 (OS Build 17763.2565).
It is worth noting that Windows 10, version 20H2, 21H1, and 21H2 share the underlying core, so they have an identical set of system files. That is why they receive the same cumulative updates.
These updates will be automatically installed on your computer. To speed up the process, open the Settings app (Win + I), and navigate to the Windows Update page. There, click the Check for updates button. Windows will perform the update check and download the latest available patches.
