L2TP over IPSEC VPN Connection No Longer Working After January 2022 Update

We also just recently reported about the first cumulative update for Windows 10 and Windows 11, it turns out that there have been reports of other problems that arose shortly after this update was launched.

This new issue relates to VPN connections and only affects L2TP over IPSEC, the error message itself reads “The L2TP connection attempted failed because the security layer encountered a processing error during the first negotiations with the remote computer”, based on information from the Borncity page, this issue will not affect Open VPN, so if you are an Open VPN user, it should be safe.

Well besides that, reportedly IKEv2 is also affected by this problem, so you may not be able to run it normally.

Please note that this problem only affects the VPN configuration that you do on Windows 10 and Windows 11 directly without the help of other applications such as Open VPN and others, and yes, this problem does not only affect Windows 10 but on Windows 11 as well.

Until I wrote this article, unfortunately, there is no information and resolution steps that Microsoft presents in the release notes of each update. However, I will inform you again if there is an update that is presented on the related release note page.

So what do you think? comment below guys.

Microsoft Pulls Troubled Windows Server Update

Microsoft Pulls Troubled Windows Server Update

The latest Patch Tuesday update which has been released previously is known to have caused many problems, including boot loop on servers running Windows Domain Controller, messing with Hyper-V, and rendering storage using ReFS unusable.

Microsoft finally pulled the Windows Server update which was released as Patch Tuesday, after many users reported that the update had a number of bugs, as described above earlier.

Windows users had two misfortunes on the same day that Microsoft also released another update that fixed 97 security vulnerabilities in its monthly Patch Tuesday, which also caused Windows installations to crash for some users.

That update includes Windows Server 2012 R2 KB5009624, Windows Server 2019 KB5009557, and Windows Server 2022 KB5009555 updates. All of the updates listed were found to be problematic.

“Admins at Windows Domain Controller please be careful when installing the January 2022 security update. I’ve been getting a lot of reports of Windows servers not booting at all after installing that Patch Tuesday. Lsass.exe triggers a BSOD with error 0xc0000005. This affects all versions of Windows Server that behave as a domain controller,” said a user who goes by the name BornCity.

The domain controller behaves as a server to process security login requests for Windows computers. Microsoft Hyper-V is the default hypervisor for the latest Windows Server updates, capable of managing virtual machines running the Windows x86-64 operating system.

Then what has changed due to the buggy update is the Resilient File System (ReFS), which is a file system designed in such a way to protect your data and help it stay safe even when it crashes.

The problem with this update also raises its own polemic, because this then raises concerns from admins or organizations and on the other hand it will be increasingly difficult to convince them to immediately update their system if it turns out that the update that was sent turns out to be problematic.

Experts suggest that although Microsoft always recommends updating immediately for device security, it’s best to test it on a single device first, to determine its reliability, before deploying it to more devices.

Former CEO: Microsoft Should Separate Windows and Office

Former CEO Microsoft Should Separate Windows and Office

A former Microsoft executive who was quite prominent in the 1990s had a crazy idea for the company, which was to suggest that Windows and Office be made into separate services. Of course, that would never happen, and it was an outlandish idea for the time.

But if you look at the current conditions, the idea is actually quite interesting, considering that Microsoft is currently focusing on cloud services and doesn’t have much time for Windows to be as good as it can be.

“The right thing to do now is probably looking to the future of cloud services,” said former Microsoft executive Ben Slivka during an interview some time ago.

According to him, Microsoft should separate their Windows and Office services to drive the growth of the cloud computing business.

For information, Slivka is the person who led the development of Microsoft Internet Explorer through the release of version 3.0, and he also had time to write an internal memo that the Web is the next big platform.

The memo he wrote on December 12, 1995, in which he argued that the web would evolve into a full-featured computing platform that would one day surpass Windows. Slivka also stands out for her e-mail messages about Microsoft’s antitrust issues of the era.

Suggesting a separation of Windows and Office is a provocative idea and is seen as mere hype. And it will never happen for a number of reasons. The first is that both services have generated huge profits and revenues of billions of dollars each quarter, and the fate of Office today is closely tied to Microsoft’s cloud service development efforts.

But it’s also worth highlighting that Microsoft’s success with their services and other businesses has a lot to do with their old habits of continuing to support the legacy technology they rely on. Leaving Windows would send a contradictory message to companies now transitioning to cloud-based solutions, and there are still synergies between Microsoft’s legacy business and technology and cloud solutions.

Still, for those who continue to doubt Microsoft’s fidelity to Windows and its ability to keep the product modern and relevant, the idea of ​​a split is an interesting one.

Of course, Microsoft will be devoted to Windows will be able to provide better services than companies that focus on cloud services. Windows is in many ways the only major Microsoft business that doesn’t really align with their cloud services focus.
