Clearing a failed entry

    Frage

  • I have a client machine on our network that reported a failed update. I then had user run the failed update manually from the MS Download Center which installed successfully. My question is how can I clear the "Failed" status from WSUS?

    You can run in a CMD.EXe, open with Admin Rights, wuauclt /reportnow [ENTER]. After 10 Minutes the Status in WSUS must
    changed.

  • Just because an update reported "failed" doesn't mean it's going to fail forever.   It's possible that you could have let the update try to instal a second or third time and get it to update successfully.  

    Now that you've installed the update manually, you'll have to check the client's windowsupdate.log file to see what it's reporting to the server about that update.  Maybe it will simply change the status to "Installed".
