Stop the "Windows update madness" on WS2016!
Dear Microsoft Windows Server team. We would like _complete control_ over when we would like our our WS2016 to install windows updates! No more slow / timeconsuming server restarts because of "Getting Windows ready. Do not turn off your computer" messages when we just would like a quick restart of a production server.. No more TiWorker.exe using 100% of a CPU core during "*********" and so on.. And please fix the issues with '2017-08 Update for Windows Server 2016 for x64-based Systems (KB4035631)' asap. Thank you.
I experinece exaclty the same problem on all my Server 2016 machines at work and in my private lab environment. Even with nvme SSD it take about 8 minutes to pass "Getting Windows ready" screen. On SAN without SSDs it takes about 50 min and for our 2012R2 servers everything is done in only 20 min.
