Microsoft confirms Windows Server issue behind domain controller crashes
2024-03-21 12:27

Microsoft confirmed that a memory leak introduced with the March 2024 Windows Server security updates is behind a widespread issue causing Windows domain controllers to crash.

The known issue impacts all domain controller servers with the latest Windows Server 2012 R2, 2016, 2019, and 2022 updates.

Until Microsoft releases a fix for this severe memory leak issue and if they're unwilling to monitor affected systems' memory usage and reboot them when needed, Windows admins are advised to remove the troublesome updates from their domain controllers.

After installing Windows Server updates released during the November 2022 Patch Tuesday, impacted servers would freeze and restart.

In March 2022, Microsoft fixed one more LSASS crash that caused unexpected reboots of Windows Server domain controllers.

New Windows Server updates cause domain controller crashes, reboots.
