WSUS Console Error

I have installed a bunch of updates on the WSUS Server and after that I coudln’t login to the console anymore.

So I did some research on the net and some users had to uninstal KB3148812 and others KB3159706.

Instead of uninstalling following steps helped me:

  1. Elevated Command Prompt "C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools\wsusutil.exe" postinstall /servicing
  2. Enable HTTP Activation under .NET Framework 4.5 Features in the Server Manager Add Roles and Features Wizard
  3. Restart the WSUS service

Switch on and Off Monitor from cmd

We have a monitor at our work which we use to monitor our company’s state. But how lazy I am I was looking for a quick solution to switch off and on this screen. So I don’t need to do this task anymore each morning;-) I did some research on the net but didn’t found a solution to do it with the Windows inbuilt functions. Then I discovered this great command prompt tool: Nircmd. It offers a lot of other functions. Just copy it into your Windows System 32 folder and you can simply run the command “nircmd monitor off” to switch off your screen. I used Windows Task Planer to run it each morning (switch on) and evening (switch off). Check out this great tool which offers heaps of other functions:

Shutdown Computer Remotely

We sometimes have fun at work and shut down each others computer;-)
I think you need to have domain admin rights to do so. If you are not logged in as domain admin you can run the “cmd.exe” with Shift+Right Click and “Run As” Domain Admin Login + Password.

Here the command:
