Windows Server 2016 Download Maps Manager Delayed Start

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.

Download Maps Manager Delayed Start

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 Fix

The simple fix is to disable this service. The easy way to do this is to:

Open Windows Powershell

Windows 2016 Server Power Shell

Windows Powershell

Type this command:

Get-Service -Name MapsBroker | Set-Service -StartupType Disabled -Confirm:$false


Disable MapsBroker in Powershell

Problem is now fixed, and this annoying service is off and will not bother you again.

  1. Didn’t work for me. Logged into admin account, loaded powershell and pasted the following:

    Get-Service -Name MapsBroker | Set-Service -StartupType Disabled -Confirm:$false


    Set-Service : Service ‘Downloaded Maps Manager (MapsBroker)’ cannot be configured due to the following error: Access
    is denied
    At line:1 char:32
    + … -Name MapsBroker | Set-Service -StartupType Disabled -Confirm:$false

  2. Larry, even if you’re logged with an admin account, you have to execute Powershell with full admin rights :
    Right click en Powershell / Execute as an admin. And this will work.

  3. Thanks for this post, just downloaded Windows Server 2016 Data Center into VMware today and had this issue, gone now!
