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

I'm deploying WSUS via GPO.
- WSUS is working well including ccorrespondig download packages.
- 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 ?
Anyone can help me ? Thanks.

Enviroment:
DC and WSUS: Windows Server 2012 Std
Clients: Windows 10, 7 and Server 2012 Std.

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?

SBS2008 WSUS 3 sp 2 broken again, reinstall won't work. I had a full working WSUS 3 sp2  on my SBS 2008 server. Fully patched. Somehow it did not synchronize anymore. Tried full reinstalling after everything else failed as described in many articles, like here; but at configuring database it fails. Please see attached log files for Setup WSUS. I'm clueless.
Only 7 workstations (win7) in the domain and they  are also fully patched. Installing from a terminal session with the server.





Error logs:
Windows Server Update Services 3.0 SP2 could not be installed. For more information, see the Setup logs "C:\Users\Sbsadmin\AppData\Local\Temp\WSUSSetupmsi_180909_1026.log" and "C:\Users\Sbsadmin\AppData\Local\Temp\WSUSSetup.log" .

Both are attached, any right diretion would be appreciated.

Some Windows 10 workstations on my network are still running early versions of Windows 10 (1507,  1607, 1703, etc).

All workstations are on the active directory domain, and WSUS 2012 is managing all of the updates. If you log into one of these workstations it says updates are being managed by your organization, and it appears that updates are getting installed. But why don't these workstations get upgraded to the latest version of Windows 10 through WSUS? Is this by design? Is there an option you need to set in WSUS to tell it to install feature/version updates, not just minor/security updates?

As a test, on a few of these workstations I went to the Windows Update control panel and clicked the link to check for updates from Microsoft. This apparently allows you to override the WSUS management. When I click on that link, Windows checks for updates and sure enough it finds (and starts downloading) 'Cumulative update for Windows 10 Version 1607', 'Feature update to Windows 10 version 1803', etc. In other words, this manual process seems to be the only way they can get upgraded to the latest release of Windows 10.

I'm trying to get all Windows 10 workstations on the latest build but I want to do it through WSUS.

In WSUS I created a view called 'Windows 10 Upgrade' and selected the classifications and products in the screen shots below:

Updates are in a specific classification

Updates are for a specific product

Hi Experts,

We have recently had some updates go through our company and they are crashing and/or blue screening many systems.

We have security and critical patches deployed automatically to workstations.

I haven't been able to pin point exactly which update it is and need to to stop it on the other systems and deny it in WSUS.  The only clue is update 434885.  

When I google, there are several.

Is there more than one of these that is known to crash systems?  What else can I do?  Has Microsoft addressed this?

I can't find anything concrete and didn't know if anyone knew exactly which updates these are.

Thank you,

Karen

I'm running WSUS version 10.0.14393.2007 where I have read that you can no longer browse to the wsus page via an internet page on the server or via a client machine. Is this correct

I have a server (domain controller) that has a group policy that defines the location of the WSUS server.  For some reason this setting is not being applied to the server and it can not find the wsus server to get updates, rather goes online to microsoft.  This worked until approx 3 weeks ago when I noticed it was not reporting to the wsus server.  I have tried to force the policy using gpupdate /force but it still does not update.  I also tried manually adding the wuserver location to the registry for a quick fix but it will not allow it.

I have a freshly installed Server running Windows Server 2016. However when I try installing the Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) role, I get the following error message at the end when it is in the process of installing the features and roles. "The request to add or remove features on the specified server failed. The operation cannot be completed, because the server that you specified requires a restart."

Hi,

I'm trying to find out if you can push feature updates for win 10 via WSUS on Server 2008 R2.
Everything I've seen so far suggests you need at least Server 2012.

We can push normal updates currently even if the machines report as Vista machines instead of Win10.

Is my research to date correct or has anyone any info I've missed.
