Freshly installed 2019 Windows server ISSUES. (build version mismatch, *some settings are managed.....) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am facing some annoying issues on freshly installed Windows Server 2019 Standard.


    1 thing is that I downloaded and installed it from official ISO:



    it clearly says 1909 ... but still after installation it shows 1809.. ? why?


    there are already versions 1903 and 1909 ... but there is no option to update .. and no clear informations on ms sites ? 100 pages of details but NO CLEAR INFORMATION how it works and why.


    next thing is that I have this annoying "*some settings are managed by your organization" notification ?

    why this shows up ? it is freshly installed system, locally, workgroup, no domain, no organization ?


    any hints and explanations very appreciated, thanks.

  • Ok I figured out how to get rid of the "*some settings are managed by your organization" notification from updates...

    regedit -> LocalMachine - Software - Policies - Microsoft - Windows -WindowsUpdate -AU ... and delete AUoptions key....

    I still did not figure out why my 1909 build is 1809 .. and why freshly installed windows got issues which has to be repaired by messing with registry ehh...

  • If you still want answers, you should repost in the correct group.  This one is for Virtual Server 2005, a virtualization product not compatible with Server 2019.

    Try the Windows Server 2019 General group here:
