As ADS installs from powershell, I get error 0x80040154 relating to automatic updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    So I am now trying to get myself a DC configured. Assuming the commands are the same as 2012 I issued the following command:

    add-windowsfeature -Name ad-domain-services -includemanagementtools

    The install bar progresses, but at the end I get a warning:

    Failed to start automatic updating for installed components. Error: 0x80040154

    Was this because AU needs to be enabled first?

  • Hello Nick,

    The build number is helpful.

    I can repro the same error on build 10074 and the features/roles still install it's only the automatic updating for installed components that fails. \

    This is a known issue and has recently been fixed. Please test in later builds as I do not know which build.

  • Hi  Steven,

    Yes I'm on build 10074. I've enabled automatic updates, but I am not sure how to/if it is possible for me to get a later build.

    I am currently interested in giving the ADDS Features a run around the park, and hopefully (later on) have a look at the AzureAD integration and how that works on the client side.
