Microsoft has released a rare out-of-band update for Windows 11, Windows 10, and some versions of Windows Server. The update addresses issues with using specific VPN connections, and on Windows Server, fixes the errors that could have impacted the performance of the servers. Here’s what you need to know.

For Windows 11, there’s KB5010795, which addresses issues with VPN connections. On Windows 10 21H2, there’s KB5010793 which addresses issues with VPN connections and unexpected restarts on Windows Server domain controllers. For folks on Windows 10 version 21H1, meanwhile, there’s KB5010793 which brings the same patches.

On Windows Server 2022, there’s KB5010796. This one addresses the issues we’ve previously raised about Windows Server, covering VPNs, servers restarting, Azure Active Directory, and the Resilient File System format. We included links to the other KB versions for other shipping versions of Windows Server for you below. Changelogs are the same, however.
