DSC and Other issues with KB3150513 on Windows 2016 after installation

I installed the KB3150513 on some Windows 2016 Based systems. The Installation doesn’t ask for or enforced a reboot.
A couple of minutes later I pushed an updated DSC configuration and I saw the following Error Message:

The request to list features available on the specified server failed.
A DISM session could not be opened.

Workaround for Get-Help issue with Exchange 2016 on Windows Server 2016

I shared my experience with Exchange 2016 on Windows Server 2016 in the last few weeks.
The most annoying problem, in my opinion, is the Get-Help Issue! I must admit, that I use Get-Help a lot, mostly because the Help is great and why remember every option if you can use Get-Help?

Nevertheless, there is a workaround!

Open a PowerShell Session (On the Exchange Server, or remote) and then type this:

1
add-pssnapin -name Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.SnapIn

More experience with Exchange 2016

A while ago, I published an article about my experience with Exchange 2016 so far. Here is a minor update. Since my post, I found another Issue: The Exchange servers seemed to hand during a restart (reboot)!
We applied some patches on Monday and my two (2) servers hang during the restart. The RDP Session was terminated, but then nothing happened. I waited nearly an hour per node, but nothing happened. Even the local console (Via Hyper-V) was unresponsive. Only a hard Power Cycle fixed my issue.

The Patch was applied successful, so I decided to restart both nodes again today, but I had the same issue again.
