Netlogon back to Manual startup type after DC upgrade

    General discussion

  • Hey,

    Since there doesn't seems to be a way to report feedback for Windows Server like there is for Windows 10, I'm creating a post here. (If anyone knows how to report feedback for Server 2016, please share).

    Anyway, after upgrading a Windows Server 2012 R2 Server Core machine configured as a AD DC.

    Before upgrading, the NetLogon service is set to Automatic, after an in-place upgrade, the service has it's startup type changed to Manual.

    After changing it back to Automatic, things work like they should.

    I haven't tested on a full UI server, so not sure if this is a Server Core issue, or a general upgrade issue.

    So if anyone else experience issues after an upgrade, this might be the reason.
