WSUS on Server 2012 fails to download files into WsusContent folders - Can't resolve http://au.download.windowsupdate.com

    Frage

  • My WSUS is configured to use Microsoft Updates for syncing. When I approve an update, it is supposed to download it. It tries and fails. The log shows it is trying to get the files from "/msdownload/update/software/secu/2012/05/windows6.1-kb2699988-x86_f43fbd9dd869604a8c9a80608d1ec2a6ed7e9db3.cab" for example.

    There is no "/msdownload/update/software.." so the download fails.

    I can open IE and go to "http://au.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/software/secu/2012/05/windows6.1-kb2699988-x86_f43fbd9dd869604a8c9a80608d1ec2a6ed7e9db3.cab"

    IE will prompt to download, which I can do.

    How do I tell the WSUS to get the files from "http://au.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/..." ?

    It's like it doesn't know the full path.

  • Pls run BITSADMIN /ALLUSERS /RESET and clear out the BITS queue,and run WSUSUTIL RESET to see whether it works.

    BITSADMIN was deprecated in Windows Server 2008 R2 and I don't believe the tool even shipped with Windows Server 2012. There is now a PowerShell plug-in (and it may be shipping with Win2012) that provides functionality to manage BITS operations.

    Yes, here is a technet article describing how to use Powershell commands for bitsadmin functionality.

  • Hi,

    If you can access the target file via Internet Explorer from the console of the WSUS server,are you required to use a proxy server to access the Internet via the browser?

    If so, is WSUS configured to use that proxy server?Perhaps you are not configuring the proxy options correctly.

    Regards,

    Clarence

  • In the WSUS console on a server 2012, my co-worker went into the Options, "Update Source and Proxy Server", under the "Proxy Server" tab, KEPT the check mark for "Use a proxy server when synchronizing", but UNCHECKED the "Use user credentials to connect to the proxy server".

    I can at least now log in and download updates.

    The folders under WsusContent now have files in them.

    This drove us nuts!
