Windows 2003 server update- stuck in restart till touch console
Posted on 2007-04-10
Windows 2003 servers get stuck in shutdown/reboot after auto-windows update. When i go to the physical console (walk across the parking lot to the server room where it's on a KVM switch... we have three different brands, so I dont think it's a KVM problem) and move the mouse, miraculously it finishes shutting down and comes up normally.
This sucks. How can i fix this without having to touch the mouse?! I can't remote in. And i want it to reboot without any intervention by me anyway.
