Windows 8.1 wsus problems
Posted on 2014-11-13
Hi, we now have several windows 8.1 laptops on our domain network but we are having problems using wsus to update them.
Domain functional level is windows 2008 r2 and we have one 2012 R2 DC.
We are applying wsus through GPO.
The laptops receive all the correct GPO settings and recieve the updates (event logs show files downloaded)
That's about it, the updates never seem to get installed.
There's an error along the lines of:
"Installation ready: updates are ready... to install updates an administrator should log on.. windows will prompt with further instructions..."
Non admins are approved to approve updates via the gpo (and have checked the registry)
Logged on user is an administrator of the laptop anyway.
