Our hosts decided to reboot. Only one of the hosts wouldn’t start VMs. They’d sit there fine while off but attempt to start them and they’d fail.

Are the cause. Uninstall and all will be fine.

wusa /uninstall /kb:5009595 /quiet /norestart

wusa /uninstall /kb:5009624 /quiet /norestart

Probably a good idea to remove from WSUS for now if still using WSUS.
