  • IISRESET results in W3SVC stuck in stopping status after July 2018 patches

    Jul 13, 2018 04:03 PM|Mark_9_1_1974|LINK

    Seeing that any time IISRESET is issued on a Windows 2008 R2 server after applying the following security updates (see list below) the W3SVC (World Wide Web Publishing Service) gets stuck in a stopping status.  Have seen other services also get into this stuck status, but predominantly W3SVC.  Cannot kill the process; have to reboot to correct until next IISRESET occurs.  :-(

    Anyone know which KB this is tied to and if there is any update on a fix?
