Known issue 1


A new Ethernet vNIC may be created with default settings in place of the previously existing vNIC, causing network issues. Any custom settings on the previous vNIC are still persisted in the registry but unused.

This script can be run on physical or virtual computers:

Immediately after installing the Convenience Rollup but prior to restarting the following patch install.
After installing Convenience Rollup 3125574 and restarting even though the computer is in problem state. In this case, another restart will be required after executing the script.
