Just noting that it a serious concert that you cannot restart the server?

this restart is for a feature which i installed and not for windows update

Alan, its a production exchange server and it is a mistake which i installed that feature
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
