Windows Server 2016 on Hyper-V stuck at stopping

A Windows Server 2016 guest VM on Hyper-V hangs while stopping after Windows Updates
… and the guest server VM won’t reboot

Reset the type of debugging information written to the log file.

wmic recoveros set DebugInfoType = 0

It might only be an issue if the PageFile is on a different VHDX. Here are two Microsoft forum references:

If necessary, kill TrustedInstaller.exe if the server is hung during reboot working on updates using Sysinternals Suite:

c:\path\to\pskill.exe \\servername TrustedInstaller.exe
