Disconnected WSUS

Hi all,

I am trying to deploy a disconnected WSUS server on a network that doesn't have an internet connection. I have followed Microsoft direction from the start, beginning at creating a WSUS server on a connected network, downloading updated, approving the ones I needed and exporting the .cab and .log files along with copying all the updates onto the disconnected server. The problem that I am having is that I cannot get any clients to connect to the WSUS server at all, even with my group policy pointing to the server, it still says no PC have made contact. Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Mike.

You could start with checking the WSUS update log of a client to see if it is indeed trying to connect to your WSUS server.

C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log

I have checked the log, and it's blank, no tried on the side of the client. I have tried wuauclt.exe /detectnow on the client, that didn't do anything either. I also ran the gporesult /v to make sure the group policy is working and it is, just can't make the client connect to the server.

You can check this key to see if the Client has picked up the GPO properly.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

If the above is set correctly then you can try deleting this string.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\SusClientId

Then run these commands
net stop wuauserv
net start wuauserv
wuauclt.exe /detectnow

The client should re-populate the SusClientId with a new value and shortly after this should register in WSUS.

If the first key is wrong then the client isn't picking up GPO change.

I got it fixed. The problem was that Windows Update and BIT service was disabled on the client. After enabling those services and running wuauclt.exe /detectnow it started the download. Thanks. Mike.
