Updating windows server 2016 to r2
and without proxy, Windows Update works just as it should! You are checking the configuration of older machines by opening up Internet Explorer and double-checking proxy settings…
Again this is one time operation and not reversible!Next, Install Windows Server 2016 including the latest cumulative updates, drivers and firmware.In this example, I used Server Core as clean install instead of in-place upgrade. Get-Storage Pool -Friendly Name "Tiered*" | Select Operational Status, Health Status, Provisioning Type Default, Version, Resiliency Setting Name Default, @, Fault Domain Awareness Default, Logical Sector Size, Physical Sector Size As you can see, the Operational Status is set to “Read-only”, the Health Status is “Unknown”, the Version is “Windows Server 2012 R2”, the Resiliency Setting is “Mirror”, and the total capacity for the pool in our example is “10TB”.I did not look at the installation instructions (note: don’t ever do this …updates are fussy and why I am writing this blog post) and plowed head installing the executable associated with KB2919355. Going back and looking at the instructions, buried in the last step is what I lovingly call an “oh by the way” – you have to install KB2919442 (also not shown as an optional update in WU) first. So to install SQL Server 2016 on Windows Server 2012 R2, here is the installation order for these fixes: If you are still having issues, you’ve got other problems going on that you will need to investigate. Note that if you are using Windows Server 2016, you will not encounter this issue. If you want to take advantage of Windows Server 2016 with SQL Server 2016, contact us – we can help get you up and running with features such as Storage Spaces Direct which I blogged about a few days ago and SQL Server just officially announced support for at Ignite.
This is very useful If you are adding new disks, this operation helps move existing Spaces allocations to them, and optimization improves their performance.
