Windows 2016 RTM new feature RRS feed

  • Question

  • I test Windows Servers 2016 Core and Datacenter with UDE, both are RTM. When I type "services.exe" in PS console I receive BSOD and server reboot. It happens each time! Could you please explain this strange behavior?

  • I'm guessing you were meaning to run the 'services.msc' MMC snapin?

    It's an unfortunate bug in how the system handles the exit of services.exe,  which is a critical system process.  The fix is already in the pipeline for release in a subsequent servicing package.

  • I'm curious if it works the same every time but I tested it in Windows Server 2016 Standard (Core) and Windows Server 2016 Datacenter with UDE. When I typed "services.exe" in PS console I received... BSOD and server reboot. It works each time for my virtual machines. Could you please explain this behaviour?

  • It also happens with Windows 10. You might mention it over here on uservoice.

  • Affects both Windows 10 AU and Windows Server 2016,  from an elevated powershell session.

    As I mentioned in my reply yesterday/below,  the fix is in the servicing pipeline.
