Patch Tuesday is next week, but Microsoft has released a new cumulative update for those that are on the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, or version 1607. Specifically, it’s for users on the Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC), and those on the Windows 10 Enterprise and Education SKUs. Users on the Windows Server 2016 LTSC SKU will also get it. Windows 10 Home and Pro version 1607 are not supported anymore, and those users should upgrade to a newer version of the OS.
Addresses an issue that prevents the release of the on-demand Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) port allocated to a virtual machine (VM) after the SNAT port is no longer in use. As a result, the SNAT port becomes exhausted.
Unfortunately, there are also three known issues to be aware of:
