  3. Breaks NPS Azure Radius  ( needs to run repair on installer ) 
  4. Document the firewall status before upgrade ( whats enabled on what profile ) 
  5. TS Upgrades ( works with 2019 as well )  -> Upgrading your Remote Desktop Services deployments to Windows Server 2016 | Microsoft Docs
  6. Your SMTP Virtual services configuration will be wiped out during an in-place upgrade.
  7. When upgrading fileserver server with DFS , I had to manually start the DFS Server
  8. Need to fix WDS Service
