  • To do an in-place repair you can run setup.exe from the root of the installation media.

  • You might check the log for error details or possibly try a repair install.

  • Hi,

    Does it work after reboot?

    In addition, I want to confirm with you that under what kind of circumstance the problem occurred.

    I suggest you could open Event Viewer to see whether some Event ID has been logged.

    And please also try Dave's suggestion, do a repair install.

    Best Regards,

    Mary

  • No luck after reboot also.

    The problem is persistent, so there is no trigger.

    Event viewer shows:

    I will try a repair install, but it being a live server, it may not be done today

  • Hi,

    For these events, that seems to be some service wrong.

    You may also try the services.msc to do a check.

    In addition, here is the related events information. Maybe you could also take a look.

  • I don't see a repair install option for Windows server 2012. There is only a load image and cmd option (or a complete re-install). Please advise.
