Issue :

Unable to upgrade CU . Cannot start service MSExchangeServiceHost on computer

Setup Information:

Assessment & Troubleshooting Steps:

The following error was generated when “$error.Clear(); if (get-service MSExchangeServiceHost* | where {$_.name -eq “MSExchangeServiceHost”}) { restart-service MSExchangeServiceHost }” was run: “Service ‘Microsoft Exchange Service Host (MSExchangeServiceHost)’ cannot be started due to the following error: Cannot start service MSExchangeServiceHost on computer ‘.’.”.
