I have installed updates on my Windows 2012r2 Machine and as usual, I did a reboot. However, it seems that the machine has hung itself during the reboot process and does not do a proper shutdown. I can initiate a connection via RDP, but not connect to the machine, I can also send commands via powershell, so I have tried sending a Force reboot:
Restart-Computer -Force -Credential domain\adminuser -ComputerName COMPUTERNAME
The reply from the server is the following:
Restart-Computer : Failed to restart the computer 10.250.35.16 with the following error message: A system shutdown is in progress.
Is there a way to force the reboot and kill the processes?
