WSUS failed to download Updates

Hi Experts,

I have installed WSUS application in one of the  server and is working fine. But due to issue of disk space I am needed to move WSUSContent to other location. I have used wsusutil movecontent command to move the everything to other location and it is completed without any error.

Now, the catch is that, I have moved all data to workgroup computer from the domain computer. Now when I am trying to download the updates, I am getting the following error

event ID 364:  content file download failed. reason error calling kernel32.dll createdirectory.

I have shared the folder in workgroup computer with full permission to Everyone and also have created one user with same user name and password in workgroup computer as user in the domain to avoid authentication issue. I have the registry setting as well and provide the path of WSUSContent to shared folder of workgroup content

But still got no luck.. Any help please..

wsus not supports network drives ...it should be on local drive or try adding USB HDD and check ?

Try to use iSCSI for it if you have some NAS box or other Windows Server.

WSUS storage has to be local as WSUS runs under the context of the “Network Service” account which will not have permissions to external network resources.

ISCSI should however work.
