Delay in accessing a file server when a Windows 7-based computer connects to the file server.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a client computer that is running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
  • You connect the client computer to a file server that is running Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2.
  • You connect the client computer to the file server again by using a different universal naming convention (UNC) path.
In this scenario, when other client computers try to access the same file server, they may encounter delay.
Cause:
This issue occurs because the Windows 7-based client computer uses the same client ID for the connections that use different UNC paths. Then, the file server cannot identify the appropriate connection to send an oplock break request.

Applies to
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1, when used with:

The SMB Redirector may hang when the SMB protocol is used in Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1.

Symptoms:
When the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol is used in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or in Windows 8.1 to access files that reside on a remote system, the SMB Redirector may hang, and the system seems to stop responding.

The implementation is based on the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. The SMB protocol lets the client computer to access files on another computer that implements the SMB Service part of the file-and-print sharing functionality, and access to a shared printer.

Splwow64.exe process doesn't end after a print job finishes in the 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that is running the 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You print something by using a 32-bit application.
  • The print job is finished.
In this scenario, the Splwow64.exe process does not immediately end.

Note The Splwow64.exe process is used to translate the driver model of a 64-bit operating system and a 32-bit program.

Cause:
This issue occurs because the Splwow64.exe process stays in the memory for additional time to increase system performance after a print job is finished. Therefore, the Splwow64.exe process does not end as expected when a print job is finished.

Resolution:
After you apply this hotfix, the hotfix sets the default time-out value for the Splwow64.exe process to remain in memory to two minutes. Therefore, the Splwow64.exe process shuts down two minutes after the last print job is finished. Additionally, you can configure this time-out value by changing the registry value in the "Registry Information" section.

Note: After applying this Hotfix you'll have to configure the time-out value in the registry. Backup your registry before any action.

Server stops responding when you lock or unlock files on a network by using the SMB2 protocol in Windows.

Symptoms:
A computer that is running Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 stops responding when it uses the Server Message Block Version 2 (SMB2) protocol to lock or unlock files on a network.

If you enable the special pool feature on the computer, you receive a Stop error message that resembles the following:
Code:
STOP: 0x000000D5 ( Parameter1 , Parameter2 , Parameter3 , Parameter4 ) 
DRIVER_PAGE_FAULT_IN_FREED_SPECIAL_POOL

Notes
  • The parameters in this Stop error message vary, depending on the configuration of the computer.
  • Not all "0x000000D5" Stop errors are caused by this issue.
Cause:
This issue occurs because of a race condition between the NTFS file system driver (Ntfs.sys) and the SMB2 server driver (Srv2.sys).

When the race condition occurs, a structure in NTFS file system driver is released prematurely. Therefore, the issue that is described in the "Symptoms" section occurs when the Ntfs.sys driver accesses the released structure.

CredUIPromptForWindowsCredentials API does not select the smart card logon certificate from the pvInAuthBuffer parameter.

Symptoms:
Assume that you use a smart card in which multiple smart card logon certificates are stored. Programmatically, you want to preselect one of the stored smart card certificates in the credential information dialog box when you call the CredUIPromptForWindowsCredentials API. To do this, you populate the pvInAuthBuffer input parameter of the CredUIPromptForWindowsCredentials API with the credential of the certificate that you want to preselect. This issue is that the CredUIPromptForWindowsCredentials API does not preselect the certificate that is supplied in the pvInAuthBuffer parameter. Instead, the default certificate that is stored in the registry is preselected.

Cause:
If the credential that is supplied in the pvInAuthBuffer parameter does not match the first certificate that is stored in the smart card, the default certificate that is stored in the registry is used instead. The default certificate is located in the following registry subkey:
Code:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\Credential Providers\{8bf9a910-a8ff-457f-999f-a5ca10b4a885}\SessionData\1\Certificate
Note The default certificate is stored in the registry subkey after a previous successful smart card logon.

You get a restricted IP address after the wireless interface is re-enabled in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
This issue occurs if the computer has joined an environment that has the Network Access Protection (NAP) feature enabled on the DHCP server. When this issue occurs, the DHCP server recognizes the client as non-NAP capable.

To work around this issue, restart the Network Access Protection Agent (NAPAgent) service on the client computer.
