Enable or Disable Shutdown Event Tracker on Server 2016

The Shutdown Event Tracker can be displayed when you shut down a workstation or server. This is an extra set of questions that is displayed when you invoke a shutdown to collect information related to why you are shutting down the computer.

If you enable this setting and choose “Always” from the drop-down menu list, this feature is displayed when the computer shuts down. If you enable this policy setting and choose “Server Only” from the drop-down menu list, the Event Tracker is displayed when you shut down a computer running Windows Server. (See “Supported on” for supported versions.)

If you enable this policy setting and choose “Workstation Only” from the drop-down menu list, the Shutdown Event Tracker is displayed when you shut down a computer running a client version of Windows.

If you disable this policy setting, the Shutdown Event Tracker is not displayed when you shut down the computer. If you do not configure this policy setting, the default behavior for the Shutdown Event Tracker occurs.
