Configuration Manager 1802 Hotfix KB4342419 was released to address an issue where smsexec service terminates unexpectedly. This occurs while reassigning distribution points in Configuration Manager 1802. However there is no crash dump log generated to understand why the smsexec actually terminated. In addition there is “Event 1000, Error 0xc0000374” logged in event viewer.
If you are experiencing exactly the same issue mentioned above, this hotfix is for you. But if you are in a situation where smsexec service gets terminated and even hotfix installation is prevented, follow the steps mentioned in the below screenshot.
