Windows Server 2019 Essentials automatically disables SMB2 service when installing apps

Hi all,

We have an issue with Server 2019 Essentials and SMB2 service.

Anytime we install any application or program SMB2 gets disabled automatically by OS.

The other day i installed Acrobat Reader and puff, SMB2 was disabled.

As we use Server for network shares they all stop working and we need to restart SMB2.

We tried reinstalling several times, didn’t help.

We don’t use any special roles, only network share.
Drivers are all installed from Microsoft Update and the Update itself is the latest one.

Any idea why this would be happening?

Thank you

Hello @9800pro-0625

I would suggest to use Process Monitor to capture process details , and identify which process has caused such issue.
