2016 Essentials working but keeps showing a message on restart


  • OK so I upgraded my essentials to 2016 from 2012 R2. Yes it wasn't pretty, well seemed OK but there were lots of errors on the server logs. I remediated and documented every one of them and the fixes. Only thing I still have is on every reboot I keep seeing the final message I saw when the install was done that Essentials 2016 has successfully configured windows server essentials.  Only other thing on that screen is a reference to registering with Microsoft cloud services which I definitely am not doing.  Any ideas how to get this message to go away?
