Windows Server 2016 Download Maps Manager Delayed Start Red in Server Manager Dashboard
Its kind of annoying to find that after a fresh install of Windows 2016 Server you have a service that fails to behave correctly.And it is because your MapsBroker stopped or never started to work. The good news for users of a system that ships in a state that throws an error is that the fix is quite simple.
When you click on the service, you will see something like this.
Even if you attempt to force a start, it does not resolve this issue.
The good news is that this service is really not something you want anyway if you have a windows server doing actual server functions.
The simple fix is to disable this service. The easy way to do this is to:
Open Windows Powershell
Be sure to open this by right clicking on PowerShell and select Execute as Admin. This is necessary even if you are logged in as an admin.
Type this command:
Get-Service -Name MapsBroker | Set-Service -StartupType Disabled -Confirm:$false
Problem is now fixed, and this annoying service is off and will not bother you again.
