    7 updates have not been insalled

    171 updates have been installed

     

    now also i see in all updates screen

    The below was my earlier post  which is solved now since I uninstalled WSUS and installed from scratch .
    now Its working fine


    Dear All,

    I have installed WSUS and the synchronisation went perfect. then in my update services screen i noticed that the download status it started to download the maximum download size shown ws abt 19 GB.

    i used to monitor this and the download  was increasing but after it reached about 16 gb the download stoped.

    i checked in event viewer and it told me the.... server is failing to download some updates downlaod status

    then in update services console ===> updates ===> security updates i could see about 14 updates have a red cross under the status rollup and it said that the update failed to downlod.

    i restarted the WSUS server and now the update services pge srart showing me
    download status 

    update needing files 32

    download 6 mb of 932 mb and the download was increasing and i found that at 220 mb it stop again

    the wsus server is on the same server as my Active directory server

    also i am using a squid proxy server for connecting to the internet 

    appreacite your kind advice and help

  • as you say that the update rollups rule in options defualt automatic rule does no approve update rollups classification so how do i go about  the sttus message which says updated pending and still t 99%
    This 99% "Installed/Not Applicable" reflects the fact that you have six Not Installed/Not Approved updates in the Update Rollups classification. I would suggest reviewing the update definitions for those updates, determining if any are superceded, approve those that are not, and work toward resolving the status on those six updates. Once you've done that, I would expect the "Installed/Not Applicable" value to rise to 100%

    The six updates in the Update Rollups classification are NOT APPROVED. That's why those did not get installed. As for the one security update -- you'll need to identify WHAT security update that is, verify that it should be installed, confirm that the content for the update is downloaded, and then check the status of the client system. (Perhaps it is pending a restat and cannot install any additional updates? Perhaps it's simply not reported status yet for the installation of that update?
    also i have a rule in options==>automatic approvals==> default automatic approval rule which says when an update is in critical updates, secutiry updates, update rollups, updates,  ... approve for all computers
    Okay . . . but this rule won't approve updates in the Update Rollups classification.

  • Thnks a lot Lawrence for your immedite reply
    by the way I ran wuauclt /detectnow on the client and after sometime i saw the 1 security update which was under approval installed and now i see that 6 updates are remaning all under update rollups.

    as you say that the update rollups rule in options defualt automatic rule does no approve update rollups classification so how do i go about  the sttus message which says updated pending and still t 99%

    I cn try to manully approve them n check it out but just was wondering why they were not approved or how do i automatically approve them in future since now i jus hve one test computer but will have after testing about 700 to 800 client computers


    thanks once again

    regards

    simon
