    Patching takes unneccesarily long or fail randomly using the new Windows Update interface and forces me to use command line.

    Just had 2 servers in a row that would get stuck at “getting windows ready”, forcing me to use PSexec to remotely kill the Windows Modules Installer service that was stuck in a Stopping state before the OS would boot. And the only thing this server is running is some freaking backup software.

    Have had nothing but issues with patching on server 2016. Anyone else?

    I lost my print-server after an update attempts and restart. I had deployed 2016 hyper-V failover cluster.

    After 4-5 hours the rack was back online I recovered it via Veeam B&R. To achieve this again I had to pass hurdles and you are right but when it runs it freaking runs except when updates are on the way.

    Yep 2016 is not very good when it comes to updating.

    I beleive its been changed in 2019 as the update engine has been refreshed.
