After applying the February 14, 2023 Microsoft update KB5022842 (OS Build 20348.1547) on a Virtualized Windows Server 2022 with Secure Boot Enabled and rebooting the server a second time, the machine might crash and not start up. This issue is reproducible without any Delinea products installed on the Windows Server 2022 system.
