    My WDS Stopped Working Today After 30 Windows Updates

    Hi all. I just wanted to alert other WDS users to a problem I came across today.

    I logged on to our WDS and found that there were 8 Windows updates waiting to be applied [all critical]I allowed them all to deploy.

    Upon restart I found that the 'Windows Deployment Services Server' service would not start. I am still looking at what updates were applied and what might have caused the problem.

    I restored C:\ and Services State from backup and restarted the server. Happily normal service has now been restored.

    As a word to the wise: Check your WDS servers to make sure that they are still viable.

    HTH.
