Windows 11 update KB5010795
  • Microsoft release update KB5010795 for Windows 11
  • The update fixes VPN connections and ReFS mounting issues.
  • A similar update is also available for Windows 10 and Windows Server 2022.

Microsoft is now rolling out the update KB5010795 as an out-of-band release for Windows 11 to fix a specific problem with Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections and removable media formatted using the Resilient File System (ReFS) from mounting.

The out-of-band update KB5010795  bumps the version number to build 22000.438, and according to the official logs:

  • Addresses a known issue that might cause IP Security (IPSEC) connections that contain a Vendor ID to fail. VPN connections using Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) or IP security Internet Key Exchange (IPSEC IKE) might also be affected.
  • Addresses an issue that might prevent removable media that is formatted using the Resilient File System (ReFS) from mounting or might cause the removable media to mount in the RAW file format. This issue occurs after installing the January 11 Windows update.

The same fixes are also available as update KB5010793 for Windows 10 21H2, 21H1, and 20H2, and for Windows Server 2022, the update is described as KB5010796.

The update bumps the version number to build 19042.1469 (20H2), 19043.1469 (21H1), and 19044.1469 (21H2), and build 20348.473 for Windows Server 2022. In addition to the same fixes as the update for Windows 11, this rollout also :

  • Addresses a known issue that might cause Windows Servers to restart unexpectedly after installing the January 11, 2022 update on domain controllers (DCs).
  • Addresses an issue that prevents Active Directory (AD) attributes from being written properly during a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) modify operation when you make multiple attribute changes.

Although version 1909 is no longer supported, this release gets the out-of-band update KB5010792 to fix only the VPN connections problem.

Windows 10 version 1607 also receives the out-of-band update KB5010790 that bumps the version number to build 14393.4889 and fixes all the same problems as the update for version 21H2.

Finally, the original version of Windows 10 is also getting the out-of-band update KB5010789 that bumps the version number to build 10240.19179 and addresses the VPN connections and ReFS mounting problems.
