Try rebooting the server and Enter Safe Mode.  Once in safe mode run msconfig.exe and go to services tab.  Look for Windows update and uncheck it and Apply and OK.  Will ask for a reboot.  Just try it out if it fixes your issue.  I had an issue with a server and I solved it using the steps I have mentioned.

If it is stuck then you have no choice but to reboot and see what happens.

Hi Experts,
We just got an employee at the remote location,

The server was found on but not responding...

as soon as we plugged in display and usb mouse and keyboard,,,
it restarted normally and is now working...

So the quiestion is do we need to have a screen and mouse and keyboard always connected ?
The server sued to restart without this devices....
Why now ?

Regards,
