Microsoft confirms authorization issues after patch day updates

Windows users are reporting increasing problems with apps and services after the latest patch day updates. Microsoft has now confirmed an authorization issue and is collecting reports to determine the cause. That reports that Neowin online magazine Specifically, concerns the latest Patch Day updates for Windows 10 and Windows 11. Microsoft is currently collecting reports that after the updates of Windows 10 and 11 PCs, authorization with the NPS, RRAS, EAP, and PEAP protocols is no longer possible used to be.

The problem is related to the way the domain controller handles the assignment of certificates to computer accounts. However, this confirmed bug does not affect client Windows devices and non-domain Windows servers.
