Microsoft Acknowledges KB4480970 Bug for SMBv2 Shares, Provides Explanation and Guidance

Customers are experiencing a severe bug in KB4480970 where computers are unable to access network shares. Reports have been rolling in steadily since the roll-up for Windows 7 was released.

Microsoft has now updated the roll-up history page to reflect the bug, issue some reasoning, and apply some guidance for affected customers.

Problem:

Local users who are part of the local “Administrators“ group may not be able to remotely access shares on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 machines after installing the January 8th, 2019 security updates. This does not affect domain accounts in the local “Administrators” group.

Guidance:

To work around this issue use either a local account that is not part of the local “Administrators” group or any domain user (including domain administrators).

We recommend this workaround until a fix is available in a future release.
