Microsoft Releases OOB Updates to Fix Domain Controller Authentication Error After Patch Tuesday

After the latest May Patch Tuesday updates (Windows 11, Windows 10) , Microsoft confirmed that the update was causing domain controller authentication failures. Later, CISA also asked administrators to temporarily skip Patch Tuesday. Issues were occurring due to a certificate mapping error, and the company provided a workaround.

Microsoft released several out-of-band (OOB) updates today that address this issue. Advisory says:

After installing the May 10, 2022 updates on your domain controllers, you may experience server or client authentication errors.
