  • Server 2016 LTSC patches take for-e-ver. There are numerous reasons why – and not much you can do about it

    AskWoody reader (and Server expert) @alQamar has discovered a very disconcerting pattern when updating Server 2016 LTSC Core and LTSC GUI machines.

    An update to Server 2016 LTSC can take ten times as long as a similar update to Server 2019 LTSC.

    There are tons of reactions about Server 2016 and Client being slow updating. While most reliability issues have been fixed by today – update speed has not, not even with the latest Servicing Stack Update 02-2019
