      edit: 10 2012 R2 server installed (not upgraded) their 09-2019 updates during the same time in a piece of that time residing on the same SAN / VMware Hosts.

      Karl W-E. commented  · 

      Last patchday 06.10. 09-2018 September CUs:

      2 VMs on VMware: 2016 (LTSC)

      update duration 7:30 pm to 11:30 pm.

      Why? The VMs did download the 05-2018 CUs in the local cache from WSUS.
      You cannot deny this installation via usoclient or PShell.
      After the installation of the 05-2018 patches, the 09-2018 were obtained and installed via WSUS.

      Please know that this behaviour won't be the same with Server 2016 1703 (SAC) or later or even 2019 Server.

      So it provingly is a servicing stack issue / TIworker.exe issue despite all current SSU were installed. Please fix your code Microsoft.

      No company will upgrade to 2019 (currently paused), or use SAC branch just for sake of having FAST updates.

      In the meantime I've upgraded 10 Server 2012 R2 machines + 3 clients from 1803 to 1809.
      Just to give you an idea HOW F... slow this Server 2016 1607 does do its updates. I am feeling desperate that you do not comment or solve this major issue.

      Karl W-E. commented  · 

      Patrick I hear you, let's hope that Server 2019 will be better. Infact Server 2016 is a bit like vista and technically old, based on Windows 10 1607, which was not their best release base anyway.

      I have good hopes for Windows 10 1809 / Server 2019

      Karl W-E. commented  · 

      ^^ they probably know but don't have the personel and time to do that. Still I think it has become easier with Windows 10 and 201x Server

      Karl W-E. commented  · 

      I also recommend to install the most recent SSU first before installing any other CU or update.

      Karl W-E. commented  · 

      Steve I absolutely agree I am sure that Server 2016 won't be addressed and MS will focus to fix this in Server 2019 aka 1809 and which is probably also the next LTSB.

      This is a sad thing but I doubt they will can handle this using a servcing stack update. BTW have you installed the Servicing stack update on any 2016 Server yet to test if this ease the process? There was a very unknown advisory in the Update History.

      Prerequisite: When installing both the servicing stack update (SSU) (KB4132216) and the latest cumulative update (LCU) from the Microsoft Update Catalog, install the SSU before installing the LCU.
      Note these SSU (servicing stack update do not come automatically to any Windows Version, neither 1507 (and LTSC), 1511, 1607 (and Server and LTSC), 1703. 1709 and 1803 are not affected

      https://support.microsoft.com/en-ushelp/4132216

      Please give it a try if this fixes your issues.

      On my behalf MS should automatically deploy these to anyone needed and code a prerequisite check. Cannot be that hard Microsoft, can it?

      Karl W-E. commented  · 

      David, Update log is available only via Powershell. This is a change.
      Anonymous try to enable software vGPU on ESX / Hyper-V this should heal your GUI slowness and greatly improve the performance on Citrix for free.

      On the topic I am sad that Server 2016 does not offer Edge, as a substitute to IE as IE is still loading while other products are already ready.

      So my plea is: faster updates (better utiliziation and GPOs to steer dism / installer worker)
      implement Edge on Servers, please.

                          lean I am sorry but WAC is far from being useful or to replace Server Manager. if you install a role that needs after installation actions, WAC will not notify you, you need to go into Server manager to complete the steps. But yes, the idea would be nice.
                          It also cannot be used to manage one thing at many servers like in Server Manager.

                              yes it is. and also I notice very often that docs.microsoft sites are no longer consistent. en-us sites have a complete different content rather than de-de

                              compare: Windows Admin Center, Exchange Compatibility Matrix and others. It is not a matter of "machine based translation". The contents are completely different.

                              correction: 8.1 and 8.2 are named in the compat matrix, 8.3 is missing.
                              however since 8.0 there are no documented feature changes that 8.1, 8.2 or 8.3 would bring except limiting the downwards compatibility.
