Follow the path to open Windows Update service again: Control Panel Windows Update. Find Windows Update service, right click it and choose Start. Close the Services window and the Administrative Tools window. On your keyboard, press Windows logo key and type in cmd on the search box. Type in windows update in the search box in the Start panel and choose Windows Update Settings to see the change.

The Power Shell-based Deployment Wizard can work remotely, allowing administrators to promote cloud-based servers to domain controllers without the Wizard running on the server itself.
Following the completion of this process, Power Shell scripts containing copies of commands used in the process can assist with the automation of additional domain controllers, allowing for large-scale Active Directory deployments.
