Windows 2012 Server Windows Update

    Question

  • Hi all,

    I have Windows 2012 Servers that take a long time to do windows update.

    All servers are not connected to the internet and I have a WSUS servers where are the 2012 servers are connected to.

    Whenever I click on Windows update. The server will sort of HANGED. Open up the windows update log and found it's trying to get the update from the internet world.

    I leave the W2012 Server for a while and about 15-20 mins. It will find my WSUS and get the updates accordingly..

    I am using the same policy WSUS setting on the rest of my servers and do not encounter such issue.

    Anyone know what is wrong or how can I stop the server from trying to get the update from the internet?

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    What is the current version of your WSUS server? For WSUS 3.2, did you patch the server?

    Clear the log, run wuauclt /detectnow and post the entire log.

    I don't see anything in this log snippet where this client attempted to talk to a WSUS server.

    I do see where its' trying to use Microsoft Update to selfupdate, and encountering a TIMEOUT -- as it should if it doesn't have a valid Internet connection.
