Server 2012 Failure configuring Windows Updates Reverting changes Do not turn off your computer


  • Every time I add Remote Desktop Services Role, machine reboots 4 times on its own trying to install some kind of updates and RDS install fails. I know there is 8 probably but I cannot find their KB names. Event log does not show what they are or why they are failing. How to I stop these updates from applying? 

    Check the image below. It keeps failing on these updates circled and there is not way for me to stop them from attempting to install. The only way to see these in Windows Updates is if you enable RDS role and before you reboot. This is really frustrating, all I'm doing is attempting to install Remote Desktop Services for gods sake...

  • Hi, we have rebuild the system to 2012 R2 since then and that resolved the issue. I still don't know why it was doing this.
