  • Looks like the temporary profile “lost desktop” bug is hitting Server 2012 R2, too

    Günter Born has a couple of posts about our favorite unacknowledged February bug, the one that causes machines to reboot into a temporary profile, attacking Server 2012 R2.

    Even though the patchday February 11, 2020 is long gone, user comments are still arriving on my blogs reporting the problem with a temporary user profile in the Windows Server 2012 area… It is interesting to note that the temporary user profile only affects the user account that was active during the update installation.

    Here’s the scary part:

    There is no confirmation from Microsoft that this error is known. It also doesn’t look to me like the bug will be fixed on patchday in March 2020.
