A couple of years ago, I wrote a blog article about setting up Monit monitoring on an Ubuntu VMon Hyper-V. Now it’s time to do the same, but then in Windows Subsystem for Linux, or WSL. So, without further ado, here is how to install and configure Monit monitoring in Windows 10 WSL.
Since WannaCry and Petya ransomware were spreading through Windows systems in 2017, it’s recommended to have Server Message Block (SMB) version 1 disabled in Windows clients and Windows Server.

After downloading the Windows 10 update through Windows Update, Windows Update returned errors 0xc1420127 and 0xc190010b, even using the Windows 10 media creation tool. And as always there are many reasons for these errors. In this short post, I’ll provide some possible solutions and tips.
