Wsus client not reporting but updating
Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), previously known as Software Update Services (SUS), is a computer program developed by Microsoft Corporation that enables administrators to manage the distribution of updates and hotfixes released for Microsoft products to computers in a corporate environment.WSUS downloads these updates from the Microsoft Update website and then distributes them to computers on a network. At first, it only delivered hotfixes and patches for Microsoft operating systems.System administrators can also configure WSUS to approve certain classes of updates automatically (critical updates, security updates, service packs, drivers, etc.).One can also approve updates for "detection" only, allowing an administrator to see which machines will require a given update without also installing that update.SUS ran on a Windows Server operating system and downloaded updates for the specified versions of Windows from the remote Windows Update site which was operated by Microsoft.Clients could then download updates from this internal server, rather than connecting directly to Windows Update.Today I had an interesting issue where a particular server’s WSUSContent folder increased in size incredibly quickly to the point where the logical disk it was hosted on ran out of space. There is a handy utility, WSUSUtil.exe, which allows IT administrators to reset the WSUS components and rechecks each update in the database, verifying the content is present in the WSUSContent folder and downloads it again if necessary from Microsoft.
- How do I check from command prompt if client is configured to get updates for WSUS(GPO Applied) ?Suppose if I prepare a new system and at that moment how can I force client to connect to WSUS and download update.? which generally prompts that new Updates are available etc... An update to WSUS 3.0 SP2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008 (both x64 and x86) seems to break Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and/or Internet Information Services (IIS) making clients unable to update via WSUS showing error 0x80072EE2.Some Machines for customers are reporting fine, however some are not.The Registry settings appear to be the same for all customers, however in the file I am getting the following from machines not repoting in to WSUS - 2015-05-27 :203 828 cc8 Service Update Network State Ipv6, c Network Interfaces = 1.
