WSUS won't install RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a brand new virtual machine running Windows 2012. After loading all of the Microsoft updates the next thing I do is try to get WSUS running. The operative word being "try" because when I'm done going through the installation steps I get the error message "The request to add or remove features on the specified server failed. The operation cannot be completed because the server that you specified requires a restart." Of course there is no indication as to which server needs to be restarted so I manually try to restart the ones that I know about WSUS Server (Disabled), Windows Certificate Server (Manual), and Windows Internal Database (Manual). Then I try to reboot the server and all of the services are gone as if I never tried to install WSUS.

    Does anyone know why WSUS won't install on a clean machine?
