TinkerTry was first to report the issue with Windows Server 2019 code disappearing. I had stumbled into issues with trying to locate the license key last night, for the Windows Server 2019 ISO I had downloaded back on October 3rd. I was simply trying to append some updates to my article:
- Fall 2018 is quite the season with Microsoft Windows Server 2019, Windows 10 October 2018 Update, and VMware vSphere 6.7 Update 1 releases!
Oct 03 2018
Turns out it was not just the license key missing, it's was the code too, ISOs, VHDs, everything, as pictured below. I tweeted about this at 9:58 PM - 5 Oct 2018, and when I noticed the code still missing this morning, I checked around to find a few new "Windows 10 pulled" articles had just popped up overnight. I also then recalled one of my sons had issues with trying to get his Microsoft Surface to update its Windows 10.
I notified Brad Sams, hoping to get some sort of official confirmation from Microsoft. He quickly created his own post that kindly references a later spot in my same twitter thread. Special thanks to Doug Arcidino @doug_arcidino, for confirming my inability to download wasn't just me, quickly.
Once the new bits are available as ISOs, I'll have to revisit my article too, but that's ok, just trying to help folks find definitive info while we await further details and recommendations from Microsoft.
That's about it for now. I'll keep appending details here below the article as they develop. Well, right after I kick off a 2TB restore from backup, to the Windows 10 October 2018 Update system I wrote this article on ;)
