On March 12, 2013, Microsoft released KB2775511 containing 90+ post SP1 QFEs that improved boot, logon and post logon performance and reliability on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 computers. Aliases for KB2775511 include Enterprise Hotfix Rollup (EHR) and the “SBSL Rollup”.

This article have been updated a couple of times and describes known issues with the hotfix package, installation and any binaries included in the rollup.

TechNet: Ds-Heuristic Mode and Manual steps to enable List Object Mode

KB2775511 There may occur deadlocks in SCOM. Discussed here There are a pending fix for this

KB2775511 May be safely deployed if

  • Slow link detection policy is not enabled OR you pre-populate UseSMBBasedBandwidthAndLatency=1
  • DisableLeasing=1 is pre-populated in the registry OR testing verifies that at risk configurations/applications do not exist
  • Users subject to GPP have sufficient permissions to read the name and objectsid attributes the corresponding computer account in Active Directory AND testing confirms that GPP settings reliably apply in loopback and non-loopback scenarios
  • You test and have fallback | mitigation plans and can implement them efficiently in environment in question
