Windows 2016 – GISvc service not starting


After deploying some new Virtual Machines based on Microsoft Windows 2016 i noticed the following error in the Server Manager Dashboard


This turned out to the new VMware AppDefense that is found within VMware Tools 10.3.2
Since i am not using AppDefense i simply uninstalled that module

    Glad I found this. It’s the only error on the new SCCM I’m building out. Thanks for posting.

  4. Hi, If you just disable the service, you will not get the error 😉
