When checking the logs of the Storage Replica on a Windows Server 2016, 2019 or 2022, using the below command, you get the error saying that Storage Replica has failed an application IO.
Get-WinEvent -ProviderName Microsoft-Windows-StorageReplica -max 20
In this case, the replication is not working and there are no other issues pointing to what could be the problem. In my case the solution was to restart the Storage Replica service from the services.msc. After this, I ran the Get-WinEvent command again and it was replicating again.
When opening Server Manager on the server, in the notifications you will see an error stating Refresh Failed.
At this stage, you will not be able to add any features to the server and you will not be able to add or remove windows features.
A pop-up about collecting inventory data and a refresh error saying “
Configuration refresh failed with the following error: Invalid class” will show.
Before proceeding you can take a backup of this by using the command below
winmgmt /backup %computername%_MM_DD_YEAR.WMI_backup
To fix the problem you would need to do the following in a command prompt as Administrator.
This will resolve the problem and when you relaunch the Server Manager, you will be able to add the features with no issues.
You may have an issue with installing the
KB5004285 on your system. At first, the updates would install successfully, but when you reboot you will get an error saying “Failure configuring Windows Updates. Reverting Changes”
There will not be any error on your Windows machine, only a generic message that the update failed with the error message Code
800F0922 in the Windows Update History.
The error is due to an Acrobat Flash removal issue and the update will fail since it couldn’t find the folders. To resolve the issue, you need to create the following folders with the same case.
Once the above empty folders are created, simply re-run the updates and after a restart, they will be successful. Voila!
