FIX: Windows Server 2016 Auto Restarting with Reason Code: 0x80020010 (or HOWTO: stop WinSRV2016 autoUpdates and autoRestarts!!)

The EventLog logged event by the issue is:

The process C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe (“servername”) has initiated the restart of computer “servername” on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: Operating System: Service pack (Planned)
Reason Code: 0x80020010
Shutdown Type: restart

After Disabling of Automatic Updates in Settings/WindowsUpdates in the local Settings interface ‘Settings’ , the server continue to auto update critical updates and auto-restart after it, WITHOUT any notification.

Here is howto stop this madness!?. There are some other methods described in windows documentation ( read the docs: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/update/waas-wu-settings ), but still to edit the Group Policy is best practice for managing windows updates in details, granular.

so, Open the Edit Group Policy interface, and navigate to:

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows update\Configure Automatic Update , the set it to ENABLE and choose OPTION 2.

and that’s should be what it says to be, but still , i will update this post if it’s not. 🙂

Here is a Exported_list file from the particular section, you can just import with in your group policy

QUICK: Brother ‘ P-Touch H105 ‘ Cable Label Maker – howto change to symbols

P-touch H105 CabelLabelMaker

1. Locate the symbol icon on your Brother Label Maker. On the vertical handheld label makers, the symbol button appears on the bottom with an “@” symbol, telephone and star icons. On desktop versions, the button appears as “Symbol” in the lower left corner.

2. Press the “Symbol” button once. This loads the basic set of symbols first. Press the “Symbol” button again to load the pictograph symbols. Press the “Enter” key to make your symbol group selection.

3. Use the charts in the manual that came with the label maker to access the symbol you need. If you do not have the manual, the PTouchDirect website offers free PDF downloads of each one.

4. Press the corresponding number for the row of symbols you want to use. For example, if you want to use the “$” symbol or the musical note, press the number “7.”

5. Use the on-screen arrows to scroll to the “$” symbol or the musical note. As you press the arrow, a preview of the symbol appears on the LCD screen. Press the “Enter” button to confirm the selection.

6. Press the letter of the group from which you want to select in the pictograph symbol collection. For example, press “F” and load up the collection of family faces. Use the arrows to scroll through and press “Enter” on the face you want to use.

7. Type in the exact location of a specific pictograph symbol using the charts. For example, instead of pressing “F” and loading the collection of family faces, you can type in “F7” and press “Enter” to load the baby face symbol. Once it loads, press “Enter” again to confirm the selection.

Tip

  • If you do not know the exact symbol you want to use and want to browse, keep pressing the “Symbol” key and arrows to see different options.
