I initiated a restart on a Windows 2008 server and it is stuck on one of the Windows updates. This is a virtual machine under HyperV. I can browse to the drives on the server, but cannot remote in using remote desktop. I believe many services were stopped during the restart.
I can connect to the server using HyperV Manager, but can no longer get to the start menu as the server seems to be partially shut down.
Do I have any option other than shutting off the server? There is the typical Microsoft warning not to shut off the system during the update process and I am concerned about the result.
