Never, ever shutdown and install updates, especially a server. It is bad practice.

Hmm, how does it differ from a restart or at least how else would you install the updates?

install the updates.. then shutdown. Don't shutdown and install the updates during the shutdown.. for reasons such as these, when there are problems, there is no way to recover gracefully.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
