I have WSUS running on a ConfigMgr server, and ConfigMgr is currently patching clients and servers through ADR's. We're in the process of removing our servers from ConfigMgr management due to costs, clients will remain within ConfigMgr.

My question is, can I use the existing WSUS feature to patch the servers via GPO's? I ask because with ConfigMgr, you basically install WSUS and then don't touch it again. All patch management is done within ConfigMgr. I'm concerned that approving updates within WSUS might start to break things for ConfigMgr.

Hello all,
I have a client that has several Windows 7 Pro computers (around 50) that get their updates from WSUS.  
One of the computers refuses to install any updates and give me a 0x80073712 error every time.
Here is what I did to rectify this:
1)   Ran the SUR (System Update Readiness) program.  At first it stated that there were 484 errors (8 from the CSI Manifest Missing and 476 from the CSI payload file Missing).
I went to another computer and copied the c:\windows\winsxs directory to this computer.  Then I ran the SUR and it said that everything was fine.
2)   Rebooted the computer and tried to do the updates and still get the error above.
3)   Ran a Windows fix and it stated that it fixed the 0x80073712 error.  Rebooted the computer and tried to do the updates and still get the same error above.
4)   I went into the CBS log and I get a lot of Failed to internally open package [HRESULT = 0x800f0805 - CBS_E_INVALID_PACKAGE] errors
I have no idea what to do next to fix this error.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Kelly W.

I have build up a new VM with WSUS role on Windows 2012 (Old WSUS server was on 2008).
On the new server under Administrative Console for WSUS its not showing any computers.
I have named the new server the same as old server, what do i have to do to start seeing computers under WSUS?
All computers are pointing to new server on group policy.

Thanks

Hello Experts,

I am having trouble implementing a Group Policy for a WSUS Server.

Thank you

When pushing out updates via WSUS, there is one specific update (KB4462923) on three Workstations. When looking through the update history on each of the PCS, it says it failed with error code 80071A90.

These are 64 bit Lenovo machines and the update has installed successfully on other machines of the same model, all 64 bit.

Anyone have any insight as to why this would be happening?

Hello, i have a server 2012 R2 that i found out was running WSUS and using 2+TB. What is the best way to clean up all of this space its consuming?

Hi

We have an RDS deployment which consists of a RD connection broker server and 4 sessoin hosts.  All are running Server 2012R2.

Recently we have lost the ability to shadow sessions.  The connection appears to be made OK and the user is prompted to accept the connection however nothing then happens, if you try again it generates an error message saying the session is already being shadowed.  I have also tested it from the command line and the same issue occurs.

I have tried to install the recommended KB4057401 patch on the Connection Broker and the Sessions Hosts, but I get an error message saying "The Update is Not Applicable to your computer"  As far as I can tell all the pre-requisite updates are installed and I have redownloaded the patch to make sure it is the correct version.

We do run WSUS as well for updates but I can't actually see the update installed on the individual servers.

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction, we don't rely on shadowing but it would be good to get it sorted :)

Thanks
Matthew

Hey fellow experts!

With WSUS, I need to deploy a ton of patches to computers in a test OU. If the updates run fine, how do I 'Re-deploy' the same set of updates to my users? I don't know of a way to go back in and approve them again, or how to find the EXACT updates? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance, guys.

I'm experiencing several issue with computer in my environment receiving updates from WSUS. The updates download but remain at 0%. When rebooting, the computer attempts to install updates taking a while longer than expected and shows windows is updating. I have to manually shut this down as the it is sometimes hours and no updates are installed. I've completed the following:


1. Run Windows Troubleshooter for Windows Updates
2. Checked the BITS, which continuously switched from automatic to manual and stops servers. Windows Updates remains at manual and services are started for this worked.
3. Settings for Updates have been verified on the workstation for how updates are selected with other pc on the network.
4. Should Windows defender remain enabled although we use a third party anti virus program (Trend Micro Worry Free Business security)?


What other information I can offer is this workstation was upgraded from Windows 7 to 10. I appreciate any feedback with this inquiry as it will help with future install of Windows 10 in our environment.

when can I expect to see an update appear as available on windows update and WSUS? MS released cumulative update KB4458469 on September 20, I check for updates from a computer and it finds nothing , my WSUS syncs everyday but it's not there but the update is available in the windows update catalogue and installs manually just fine.

Do they delay the release to windows update and wsus?

Thanks

- GPO for Automatic Update on Domain controler setting as following :
  1) Configure automatic updating: 4- Auto download and schedule the install
  2) Schedule install day: 0- Every day, Schedule time: 10:00
  RESULT: ALL clients was affected/managed by GPO, but the TIME check update incorrect. They always showed last checked update at 7:50 AM everyday. (See attached file)
What am i missing ?

Hi,

Windows Server 2016 Version 1607 does not update through WSUS and/or internet. Tried stopping bits and update service, deleting the SoftwareDistribution folder and also searched for updates with firewall on and off. The wsus server is correctly set through group policies. The updating process is stuck at 0% downloading. On some servers it helped deleting the softwaredistribution folder, on some it does nothing. I do not know what to do next.

Please help me!

Hello,

We are running WSUS on a Windows 2016 server to deliver Windows Updates to our Windows 10 workstations.

There is a workstation which is not searchable in All Computer in the WSUS console.  Does anyone know why?  Checking the Windows Update history on the workstation, the last Windows updates being successfully installed was few months ago.  For some reason, the workstation has no issue receiving the Windows Malicious Software Updates.  

From the WSUS itself, is it possible to run a report to know which computer(s) are not able to successfully communicate to the WSUS server?

Many thanks.

Hello Experts,

I need some help integrating a WSUS server to an Active Directory organization.

The WSUS server needs to know the systems it needs to update.

How do I do that?
