After installing August and September security patched the end users receive an error can not contact domain controller when users are attempting to change their password.

Domain controllers are running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1,   clients are Windows 7, Windows 8.  

Is there a security patch needed on the domain controller to fix this issue?   Does anyone know steps to fix without uninstalling the security updates?

Looks like it may be this case as shared in the forum
Check that you have UDP/TCP 464 (kpasswd) open between your clients and your DC's....
he default Active Directory service group did not have it open -- We just recently made the move to Win 10 so I figure maybe that's why it used to work.  Looks like Win7 defaulted to kpasswd but would fall back to SAM.  I'm thinking Windows 10 is kpasswd only.
I figured this one out by looking at the DNS SRV records and noticed the _kpasswd entries "[0][100][464] DCNAME.DOMAINNAME" and spotted a few drops in my firewall.

Out of interest, which particular step solved it? (and why would this be needed, updates don't modify firewall rules?)

Mcknife,  we opened up UDP/TCP 464 on our firewall.
