Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell┬« is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Okay - just sounds serious that you cannot restart the server.  Presumably that means updates are not getting installed at all?

this is not about updates, i installed a feature (roles and feature) and it is asking for a restart

if some one logs in and open server manager the first thing it says is to restart as I installed a feature which needed a restart

I fear trying things will make it worst. I think you should bite the bullet and restart/uninstall again

After installing a feature there is no way i can stop the alert asking for a restart, i managed to restart the production server and got a hit from my boss as it was an unscheduled restart for what i have installed
