Last Tuesday, Microsoft released January 2022 Patch Tuesday update. However, the patch Tuesday update had several bugs including Windows Server DC Bootloops and Hyper-V break.

As we hinted before the January 2022 Patch Tuesday update was causing issues within several servers running on the latest Windows versions.
Besides the Windows Server DC reboots, Hyper-V service failure, and ReFS volumes mounting issue, Windows admin also reported facing issues with L2TP VPN connections after installing the recent Windows 10 and Windows 11 cumulative updates and faced the error message; “Can’t connect to VPN”.
For those who can’t immediately install OOB updates, they can uninstall the KB5009624, KB5009557, KB5009555, KB5009566, and KB5009543 updates which are causing these issues with an Elevated Command Prompt. They need to type the following commands:
Windows Server 2012 R2: wusa /uninstall /kb:KB5009624 Windows Server 2019: wusa /uninstall /kb:KB5009557 Windows Server 2022: wusa /uninstall /kb:KB5009555 Windows 10: wusa /uninstall /kb:5009543 Windows 11: wusa /uninstall /kb:5009566
Note: Removing the Windows updates will remove all the fixes for vulnerabilities patched during the January 2021 Patch Tuesday.
