Windows Server 2016 Updates

Hi all,

We have installed our first Windows Server 2016 (Datacenter) in a Windows Server 2012 domain functional level and we are trying to connect it to our onsite WSUS server (6.3.9600.16384) but this is not showing up on the WSUS.

We confirm that the WSUS registry settings are fine, FW traffic is not being blocked and also tried to use wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow but the server is still not showing up.

Any further ideas please?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Server 2016 has a bug.
Please install the november cumulative update manually, reboot and then redetect to see if it then finds the december updates on its own.

Hi,

Compare this registry key with another working server HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate and see if there is any mismatch or missing entries?

We downloaded that KB and it is saying that it is not applicable to your computer and we confirm that the WSUS registries are all the same as Windows Server 2012 where is working fine.

Any further ideas why the new W2K16 is not showing in the computer list on my WSUS 2012?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
