I had a failed Windows update on a Windows 2016 Server. Now every time I run the Windows update it say there are no update.
After doing some research I found that a number of registry keys are missing from "Component Based Servicing". These are the keys available on the server at the moment.
Comparing this to another server which is working I can see the the keys ComponentDetect, Notifications, PackageDetect, UpdateDetect and Version are missing.
This explains why the server can not display and Roles or Features as well as not finding any updates.
I would like to add these reg keys by importing from a operational server which is at the same patch level and install software as this faulty one. Unfortunately it doesn't let me as I don't have the correct permissions. It will not even allow me to change the permission for the administrator.
Can anyone assist? I really don't want to rebuild the server which is a DC.
