Known issues that affect various versions of RSAT:

Problem: The RSAT FAT installation in Active Directory for Windows 10 failed with error code 0x800f0954. Effects: FAT RSAT on Windows 10 1809 (update October 2018) in the WSUS / SCCM environment. To install FOD on a computer connected to a domain that receives updates through WSUS or SCCM, you must change the Group Policy settings to allow downloading FOD directly from Windows Update or local sharing. For details and more instructions on how to change these settings, see this topic.

Problem: Installing RSAT FAT is not displayed through the Status / Progress settings application. Impact: FOD RSAT on Windows 10 1809 (Updated October 2018). Solution: To see the progress of the installation, click the Back button to see the status on the Manage Optional Features page.

Problem: The process of removing the RSAT installation might fail FOD over application settings. Impact: FOD RSAT on Windows 10 1809 (Updated October 2018). Solution: In some cases, deletion failure returns to the need to manually delete dependencies. In particular, if the RSAT A tool is required by RSAT B, the option to uninstall the RSAT A tool will fail if RSAT B is installed. In this case, first uninstall the RSAT B tool, then uninstall the RSAT tool. See the FAT RSAT list, including dependencies.

Problem: Installing the FOD RSAT doesn’t seem to work, but this tool is still installed. Impact: FOD RSAT on Windows 10 1809 (Updated October 2018). Solution: The restarting computer will complete the removal of the tool.

Problem: Missing RSAT after Windows 10 Upgrade. Effect: Each RSAT .MSU package installation (before the RSAT FOD) is not reinstalled automatically. Solution: RSAT cannot continue to be installed through operating system upgrades because RSAT .MSU is sent as a Windows Update Active Directory for Windows 10 package. Please reinstall RSAT after updating Windows 10. Note that this limitation is one of the reasons that prompted us to switch to FOD starting with Windows 10 1809. FAT RSAT will still be installed on the upcoming Windows 10 update.

Issue: The template disk created from the Template Disk Wizard does not run. Impact: WS_1709 RSAT Package User on Windows 10 1709 (Fall Creators Update). Solution: Use RSAT FODs, or use the RSAT WS_1803 package on Windows 10 1803 (April 2018 update), or use the RSAT WS2016 package on Windows 10 1607 (Birthday Update) to create a template disk for a Windows-protected VM, or on the RSAT tool in Windows Server, Version 1709 to create protective data files for Windows and Linux protected VMs.
