FIX the Windows Update Log issues with Windows 10 and Server 2016
Include al necessary symbol files and updates to base OS and current updates. Many environments do not allow server access (and in some instances workstation access) to the internet to update symbol files as needed. I have tried every posted articles suggestions on getting the windows update log into useful, understandable English, with the only success being to reimage my windows 10 Enterprise desktop. I refuse to do so with my domain 2016 servers!
This is the most ridiculous thing EVER.
Someone needs to be fired over this.
Voted...As I sit here running get-windowsupdatelog over and over in an attempt to get as close to realtime as possible, I cant help but wonder who actually thought this would be better...and on top of that, I can no longer find the install time in the log it creates because its not even logged!!!!!!!!!!!
I've personally been telling people not to upgrade to server 2016, and this is one of the reasons. If I can't troubleshoot patch failures, I have a massive security problem on my hands. This "bug" is more of a critical threat to all Windows 10 and Server 2016 devices. With Meltdown and Spectre out there in the world you're leaving many people vulnerable. Hurry up!
