WSUS client downloads SP files but won't install
Posted on 2012-03-14
I have a single domain with a WSUS server installed on Windows Server 2008 R2. The WSUS version is at 3.2.7600.226. I have several clients that are still using Windows XP Pro and are currently on SP2. We are trying to push out SP3 finally through WSUS (please don't think badly of us this is not by choice :) )
My problem is that some workstation will download and install the SP just fine but some will simply download the files and then re-schedule the SP to install the following week (we install updates on Sundays as they are approved). Then the following Sunday it will re-schedule the install for the next Sunday in an on-going vicious circle.
I have logged into one of these workstations and downloaded and installed the SP manually so I don't believe it is a computer rights problem.
Any help would be appreciated.
Also critical and security patches apply just fine through WSUS...
