Hey Guys,

I restarted the Exchange server 2016 CU9 and now it's not starting all Exchange services.  During restart it automatically updated Windows.  Server is up and the following services below are not starting.  It's stuck on Start Pending.

MSExchangeDiagnostics
MSExchangeHM

Any suggestions?  Also, what is the latest CU for Exchange 2106?

Should I upgrade to Cu14 from CU9?

Not just yet.

the 1st thing is to try to start them manually...
how?

Search the name on services.msc (those that are stuck)

run on CMD with high privileges :

sc queryex servicename

Open in new window


And finally, run
Taskkill /f /pid [PID]

Open in new window


The value of the PID is given by the previous answer (sc queryex servicename)


Then double-check that it's all working, also review the event viewer this would give you a clue about what's going on.

And finally, when it's all good you can proceed to update to CU14
Hello Jose, thanks for the useful info.  Somehow, all Exchange services started on its own.  I will mark this as complete.
