Known issues in this update

Applies to Symptom Workaround
IT admins Using provisioning packages on Windows 11, version 22H2 (also called Windows 11 2022 Update) might not work as expected. Windows might only be partially configured, and the Out Of Box Experience might not finish or might restart unexpectedly. Provisioning packages are .PPKG files which are used to help configure new devices for use on business or school networks. Provisioning packages which are applied during initial setup are most likely to be impacted by this issue. For more information on provisioning packages, please see Provisioning packages for Windows. Note Provisioning Windows devices using Windows Autopilot is not affected by this issue.Windows devices used by consumers in their home or small offices are not likely to be affected by this issue. This issue is addressed in KB5020044.
IT admins Copying large multiple gigabyte (GB) files might take longer than expected to finish on Windows 11, version 22H2. You are more likely to experience this issue copying files to Windows 11, version 22H2 from a network share via Server Message Block (SMB) but local file copy might also be affected.Windows devices used by consumers in their home or small offices are not likely to be affected by this issue. This issue is addressed in KB5022913.
All users On October 5, 2022, the Jordanian government made an official announcement ending the winter-time Daylight Saving Time (DST) time zone change. Starting at 12:00 a.m. Friday, October 28, 2022, the official time will not advance by an hour and will permanently shift to the UTC + 3 time zone. The impact of this change is as follows:
  1. Clocks will not be advanced by an hour at 12:00 a.m. on October 28, 2022 for the Jordan time zone.
  2. The Jordan time zone will permanently shift to the UTC + 3 time zone.
    Symptoms if no update is installed and the workaround is not used on devices in the Jordan time zone on October 28, 2022 or later:
  • Time shown in Windows and apps will not be correct.

  • Apps and cloud services which use date and time for integral functions, such as Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Outlook, notifications and scheduling of meetings might be 60 minutes off.

  • Automation using date and time, such as Scheduled tasks, might not run at the expected time.

  • Timestamp on transactions, files, and logs will be 60 minutes off.

  • Operations that rely on time-dependent protocols such as Kerberos might cause authentication failures when attempting to logon or access resources.

  • Windows devices and apps outside of Jordan might also be affected if they are connecting to servers or devices in Jordan or if they are scheduling or attending meetings taking place in Jordan from another location or time zone. Windows devices outside of Jordan should not use the workaround, as it would change their local time on the device.
    | This issue is addressed in KB5018496. This update will not install automatically. To apply this update, you can check for updates and select the optional preview to download and install.If you cannot install this update, you can mitigate this issue on devices in Jordan by doing either of the following on October 28, 2022:

  • Select the Windows logo key, type “Date and time”, and selectDate and time settings. From theDate & timesettings page, toggleAdjust for daylight saving time automaticallytoOff.

  • Go toControl Panel> Clock and Region> Date and Time> Change time zoneand uncheck the option for “Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time”.Important: We recommend using ONLY the above workaround to mitigate the issue with time created by the new Daylight Savings Time in Jordan. We do NOT recommend using any other workaround, as they can create inconsistent results and might create serious issues if done incorrectly.
